Good Morning and Happy Monday! While reading my devotional Saturday, Wife After God by Jennifer Smith.(Which I am so behind on) It was on the Armor Of God. She loosely quotes a verse I had not heard in years Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 |KJV|
Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we can not see. |NLT|
He goes on to say in verse 2-3:
2. Through their faith, the people in the days of old earned a good reputation. 3. By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen. |NLT|
The rest of the chapter goes on and on of those who chose FAITH time after time. Then he(we assume Paul) states in verse 32(rephrased) how much more do I need to say? That because of faith, kingdoms were over thrown, death was escaped, fires quenched, weakness turns to strength and loved ones returned from death.
Faith is what gets us through. Faith in God that he will bless us with his grace. All of those people earned a “good reputation” with God for having FAITH in his will.
I know that I desire to have a “good reputation” with God. What does this verse mean to you?
I hope that y’all have a blessed Monday and of course a blessed week.
God Bless Y’all
