The truth about faith

S  - Heb 11: 1,6, 11
1Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.6And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.11By faith even Sarah herself received ability to conceive, even beyond the proper time of life, since she considered Him faithful who had promised.
O -   In this chapter in Hebrew the author extols the truth about what faith is.  It is an assurance of things God has promised but not yet seen, and we believe because not only is our creator, but He is reliable, true, and able to deliver on His promises.

A -  The application for me is to put my trust in the Lord and His promises to me.  I must lean on my faith in this season of doubt and waiting.   God's truth trumps my feelings, God's promises trumps my thoughts,  God's power trumps my strength.  

P-  Dear heavenly Father, thank you for your promises.  I pray for strength to lay down in the green pastures you have set me in, and the peace to wait on you.  I pray also that your spirit in me would clear my heart and mind of all worries so we can continue to love on people and lift them up.  At work with Nate, at Home with Abby, and in ministry with Rod.
