Confidence in Faith

Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. Through their faith, the people in days of old earned a good reputation. (Hebrews 11:1-2 NLT)

Hebrews 11 is called the faith chapter.  It talks about great people of the past who through their faith accomplished much for the LORD.  It does not mean they were perfect, they were far from perfect but they had faith.  Faith is more than just believing there is a God.  Faith is action.  Faith is taking that step to follow the word of God.  Faith is seeing what God has done and assurance of what He will do.  If He took care of the three young men in the fiery furnace He will take care of you during your fiery trials.  He was with Daniel in the Lion’s den.  He will be with you when you are surrounded by “lions.”  Samson made mistakes but God was able to use him to stop the oppression of His people.  We make mistakes but we can be forgiven.  God can still use us sinners to reach others for His kingdom.
