TOPIC: The Way of Faith
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 11:23-29
In Touch Daily Devotional 9 April 2022 MESSAGE
Moses was an important leader of the Hebrew people, and many consider him an Old Testament hero. He was called to do great things with the Lord’s help, and he encountered the presence of the Almighty in intimate ways. But all of his amazing feats were possible only because of his faith.
Today’s passage is part of what’s known as the Bible’s “Hall of Faith.” Those honored in this chapter believed God and demonstrated their trust with obedient action. James 2:14 suggests that all genuine faith results in action, and that’s true for us as well.
Walking by faith does not mean we’re on an easy path. It can include hardship and even persecution. But when we remain true to the Lord through it all, our faith is proved genuine and we grow in Christlikeness.
Are you willing to rely on God’s strength in your weakness? Do you believe He will empower you to stand firm if you face adversity? The Lord responds to faith by enabling us to endure difficulty, demonstrating His power in our weakness, and providing contentment and joy in the midst of suffering.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Samuel 15-17
THOUGHT FOR TODAY: Faith enables us to follow God, obey Him, and endure hardship.
