"Faith" Booster Shot One

There are many times where I've read Hebrews 11 and just skimmed over the list of people who lived by faith. God gave me a reminder today that each individual listed was a real person. A person who believed God and acted by faith. Over the next days I'm going to post sections of this chapter while I remember the faith of each individual.

It's a reminder to me right now (a booster shot), as we wait for our embassy date and my "mommy worry" comes to the forefront. God's got my back, front, and sides. He's got all of me.

Whether in fear or boldness, whether in joy or sadness, whether trembling under the covers, when we step out in faith God is there and the blessings are amazing. It doesn't mean it's going to be easy, but what it does mean (which I think is so cool) is it's going to be God's plan...not ours.

This first section is a wonderful reminder of what faith is. It also reminds us of one of the the very first steps of faith.

"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. 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." Hebrews 11:1-3

It's time to step out in faith...to remember God's sovereignty and power.

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright shove...no matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the momentum...it is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
