Hebrews 11:1-6 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for. 3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. 4 By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead. 5 By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: “He could not be found, because God had taken him away.” For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

faith5All of Hebrews 11 is a testament to what God can do if only we believe. My mind races with thoughts of this world I live in inside my carnal thinking on a daily basis. Some days it seems impossible for me to leave room in the jumbled mess of my thinking for the unexplainable works of God. The acheivements of the goals set before me seem eons away, yet they are still so close.

faith6Blindly, the 12 men from the 12 tribes of Israel stepped foot into floodstage roaring waters and the Jordan River parted for them to cross over into the promised land (read more at Bible Gateway on Joshua 3 #bgbg2). Moses, God’s servant was dead. My old dreams are dead; they died along the journey in the wilderness I found myself in. I can’t think about moving out from my current position; I must just move out. Have I been this way before? Never! Do I ponder the mysteries that lie ahead? Absolutely! Blind faith doesn’t have to make sense, I just have to believe. I trust God to do what He wants, even when I can’t trace Him.
