“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.” – Hebrews 11:1-2.
Billy Hallowell once said, “Hebrews 11:1 immediately dives into what faith truly entails: a confidence in what is not seen, yet is known to be there. The first verses of this chapter offer a powerful reminder that, though we can’t see God, we know He is there.”
Brethren, without the ability to see we hope with confidence for a better tomorrow. Life is full of difficulties and disappointments that, to me at least, can only be dealt with by having hope in the living God.
I see injustices here, I see injustices there… I see injustices everywhere. No matter if a person is good or bad! It almost makes me mad! Solomon, in Ecclesiastes talked about the former in the context of vanity in antiquity. It was true then as it’s true today. Everything is vanity other than God, ladies and gentleman.
God is here and there. God is everywhere. He is hope. Be confident in your faith! Without seeing we believe and hope for salvation. The Lord is with you everywhere you go. Don’t be afraid. Be strong and courageous as Joshua has instructed us to be. Stay firm in the faith and pray.
Let’s never forget the words of the psalmist, “You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.” Psalm 119:114. Be blessed and keep the faith. God loves you.

Yes, I view life the same way. With many difficulties in life, it is our hope in Jesus that keeps us going and which sustains us.
I always say. Life is difficult, with or without Jesus. But it is all the more difficult and unbearable not have Jesus in our life. So choose to live life in Jesus. 🙏🏻
Amen to that!
