By Faith

Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”

In Hebrews chapter 11, “By faith” is listed 22 times. By faith Noah built the ark. By faith Abraham obeyed and went, even though he didn’t know where he was going. By faith Abraham offered Isaac as a sacrifice. By faith the Israelites crossed the Red Sea on dry land. These people were all commended for their faith! They didn’t just have faith, they acted in faith.

Ephesians 3:20 says, “God can do immeasurably more than we ask or imagine.” If we believe this and believe that God is the creator of the universe and all things in it, why don’t we believe that God can feed the multitudes with the offering of our lives? Just like the little boy who offered his lunch of 5 loaves of bread and 2 small fish in Matthew 14:13-21. Jesus fed the multitudes with the boy’s small offering. Jesus is the multiplier – he can feed the multitudes when we offer our talents and gifts for his purposes.

What is God calling you to do by faith? Start a Bible study? Start a ministry? Write a book? Take a mission trip? Become a missionary?

Martin Luther King said, “Faith is taking the first step without being able to see the stairway.”

What will you do by faith according to your gifts granted by God?
