More examples of people who lived by faith…
Hebrews 11:30-40 (KJV)
By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.
Imagine being told to march around an enemy city once every day for six days and then seven times on the seventh day and blow some trumpet…and the walls will fall?! That took some REAL faith!
By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.
She lived because of her faith.
And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:
Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions.
Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:
And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:
They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;
Of whom the world was not worthy: they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.
And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:
God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.
What more can I add? The author of Hebrews covered it all!
Faith works. Faith is what we are made of. Faith is the only way to move the mountains in your life. Faith…GREAT faith is available to ALL of God’s children. Faith MUST be developed and exercised for it to become strong faith. Without faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God. You have it, sisters. It’s right there on the inside of you. All you need to do is TRUST and BELIEVE what your King says. Daddy NEVER lies and will NEVER leave you or forsake you. Who else can you say that about? Who better to put your trust in than the Creator of all things, Who calls you His very Own?!
Daddy God, thank You for Your Mighty and Powerful Word. Thank You for putting all of the information I need to live a peace and joy filled life. Thank You for giving me the ability to live victoriously. Thank You for calling me daughter. Please help me to learn how to put all that I learn into action. Help me to develop my faith. Thank You, Daddy. In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
In His Love and Service,
