“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. By faith we understand that thee entire universe was formed at God’s command, that we now see did not come from anything that can bee seen.” (Hebrew 11:1-3)
The very foundation of Christianity is faith. It takes great faith to believe God, that we’v never seen, sent his son, Jesus, to die on a cross for us. Our faith is what gives us the assurance that even though we cannot physically see God, he is with us. Our faith gives us the strength to push through the difficult times when it seems that everything on earth is caving down around us.
But as the Bible shares these amazing stories, we also find some “hiccups” in the road of their faith journey. Abraham lied on two different occasions about Sarah being his wife and even offered her over sexually to protect himself. David committed adultery, then murder, to cover up his sin.
Moses killed a man and ran to hide. Rahab was a prostitute. Noah got drunk and then was found naked. These are our heroes of faith. Why do you suppose God put this in the story? God can use us despite our pasts. He can use us in spite of ourselves. Praise God that nothing we could ever do would separate us from the love of our Father. God can and will still use you for great things.
