Hebrews 11

In preparing for a new year, God led me to write this...


By faith:
We know God created the universe. What is seen was not made from the visible.
We give our tithes and offerings, faithfully and without remorse.
We know God exists and rewards those who earnestly seek him.
We build when it seems hopeless.
We move when it seems foolish.
We see the eternal home prepared for us.
We have children and know God will help us care for them.
We receive back our dead (those who are unsaved).
We bless.
We prepare for the future.
We hold ourselves to a higher standard.
We embrace disgrace, when it comes to holy living.
We persevere under great trials, when it would be easier to give in.
We keep a day set aside for God, when it would be “better” to work.
We look to our examples and follow through with God’s commands.
We will conquer kingdoms, administer justice, gain what is promised; shut mouths of lions, quench fury of flames, escape the sword; our weakness will be our strength.
We battle against the things that are not seen.
We hold this as truth: God has planned something better for us so that only through unity will we be made perfect (not lacking any character flaws).

By faith we will run with perseverance the race that is marked out for us. God has given us certain things to do, and we will do them even when it gets difficult. Have a blessed New Year!
