“I pray that faith will find root and grow in my children’s hearts, that by faith they may gain what has been promised to them” (Luke 17:5-6; Hebrews 11:1-40).
I feel kind of lost for words right now after reading Hebrews 11. There are so many amazing stories covered in one chapter. Of all the verses, thirty-nine really stands out, “These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised.” There are so many individuals listed in this chapter, it’s crazy to think that none of them saw Father’s whole plan come to pass. Yet, they had faith that His promises to them would be fulfilled.
It’s interesting to look through each person mentioned in Hebrews 11 and think about how different things would be if they had not had faith in Father’s plan. It makes me realize the importance of having faith myself.
God has amazing things in store, not only for our lives, but in the lives of those around us. It’s easy to get discouraged when we do not see the results, but so much more important to have faith that Father is working in amazing ways.
I believe we are raising a generation of world changers, our kids have to be led by example though. They are blessed by Father and destined to do great things. My prayer is for me to have faith first and then for my children to see that and learn from it.
