When you put your faith in God He never disappoints. When Noah had faith God’s warning was real, his life and the lives of his family members were spared. God spared Isaac’s life in return for Abraham’s faithfulness.
Daniel’s faith protected him from being eaten by wild animals. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego’s faith kept the heat off of them (literally).
Faith is what allowed Mary and Joseph to stand against the ridicule and shunning of family and friends.
Faith is why James, John, Peter, Andrew, and the other disciples were able to leave the safety and familiarity of their everyday lives to follow Jesus.
Faith is what brings us to the foot of the cross; receiving salvation and the hope (faith) that we will spend eternity in heaven with God the father and Jesus the Son and Savior of man.
Pray: Father in Heaven, thank You for the Bible that teaches truth and the reason we can have faith. Thank You for Jesus and His sacrifices—the reasons for my faith. In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
