TEXT: HEBREWS 11: 7-11, 17 - 31
7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:
10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,
18 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:
19 Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.
20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.
21 By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.
22 By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.
23 By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king's commandment.
24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;
25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.
27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.
28 Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.
29 By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.
30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.
31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.
KEY VERSE: HEBREWS 12: 23
“To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect”
Just and righteous men live by faith. The great men of old lived by faith according to the passage of Hebrews. Each one had a significant feat which was exercised. Everyone fulfilled exploits in their day and time which was recognizable and admirable to the extent of notable inclusion in the hall of faith. Enoch walked with God. It was daily trust in God that sustained him. Paul set his eyes on Jesus and showed that a holy life was possible by faith. Daniel and the three Hebrew young men, as just men were delivered from the lions and the fiery furnace by faith.
Elijah did great miracles and was supernaturally sustained by faith. Peter, Joshua, Abraham, Joseph, David and countless others all had remarkable testimonies. What is your qualification of being just? Can you truly say you are walking by faith, acting in faith, and living by faith? 'The just shall live by faith!' The great spiritual leaders all lived by faith, and exercised total trust and confidence in God every day. Join the rank of great leaders of faith by standing in faith. Regardless of situations, your faith should not slip. Your faith must stand to the end and the quality of being just shall come upon you. You too can overcome by faith. Though we walk in the flesh and you see us overcome; though we have been simple and gentle, we do not war after the flesh. The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to pull down strongholds. In warfare, we are mighty and burning with fire because we trust in the living God. Among the list of just men and women who entered heaven by total trust, you too can enter. Just believe God and trust Him; hold to the benefits of the cross and the promises of God up to the point of death and you shall be smiling home to meet God. Let faith make you humble and you shall be great in the kingdom of God.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Fight the good fight of faith to be truly great.
SONG OF THE DAY: Stand up, stand up for Jesus…
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Daniel 1-2; 1 John 2
