by Rev. Sunday Bwanhot | You will be in good company with all the heroes of faith listed in Hebrews 11 if you exercise faith in God today.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. It is not only Christians who exercise faith; every human being exercise faith on a great number of things each day. The water we drink, food we eat, cars we drive, buses we ride on, airplanes we fly, chairs we sit on, depositing money in the bank, sending children to school, etc. Almost everything we do requires faith and when we do not have faith in a given situation, we refuse to act on the right thing to do.
We have faith in people and anything that has a track record of being reliable and consistent. The object of faith for the Christian is God who has proven Himself as reliable, consistent, dependable, unchangeable, everlasting, has never and will never fail. He created and sustains the whole universe with perfect precision. No one who has put his faith in God has been disappointed. You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the Lord your God has given you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed.” Jos. 23:14. “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” Mk, 13:31. Jesus is the Light and when we trust in Him, we walk in the light. Anyone who does not trust in the Light is certainly taking a blind leap into eternity without hope. You will be in good company with all the heroes of faith listed in Hebrews 11 if you exercise faith in God today.
