Today's Word: Hebrews 11:1

Do you believe in something you do not see? For instance, if you feel pain, do you believe you have been healed? If your husband has left you for another woman and has just said he is not coming back to you, do you still believe your marriage will be restored? If bills are piling up and your company shut down leaving you jobless, do you still believe for a financial breakthrough? We ought to! That is what the Holy Bible says in Hebrews 11:1. In the New Living Translation, it says, "Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see."  If we are praying to God to do something for us, we must believe not only that He can (of course He can, He made the entire universe!) but that He will! There is one beautiful song that we sing in church with this line: "..because You're my Father, You will!" What a beautiful feeling it is to have the confidence that God will do something we ask of Him  because He is our loving Father in heaven who wants the best for His children. So, whatever it is that we need (make sure though it is something that is part of God's will in our lives), let us be bold in asking it from God, believing that we will receive our 
blessing in His perfect time. The Lord might want us to wait awhile to teach us patience and test our faith, but surely, the wait will be worth it. The Lord bless you today.
