Hebrews 11 a key chapter in faith. The substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Faith from our viewpoint as Christians, is a gift from God nothing of us or from us. A belief in and devotion to “God”. And without faith it is impossible to please Him and God is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him, v 6.
So as our faith deepens and we seek Him, He will richly reward our seeking Him and I feel that is whereHis heart and longing is for us to know Him in a deeper way.
With each name mentioned in Hebrews 11. Simple humans like us but would grasp for the unknown. Noah built an ark even if earth had seen no rain, in faith of His God. Abraham and Sarah even beyond child being years had faith their God would make a great nation. Joseph , Moses had tough spells but they still hung on to their faith in God that what He promised them would come to pass.
Even Rahab with her past saw the power of the God of Israel and hid the spies lied to the guards and she along with the spies returned safe.
Each one has a unique story of their faith in a Great God. We here today can be the same amazing story if we have faith and trust in the unknown that God places in our path.
