It is that time of the year again!
No, not tax time, B90X time.
As we gear up to read through the Bible in 90 days, the Lord, through a man of God, gave us the idea of reading this year through the lens of faith. So as we read, look for signs of faith. Look for men and women of faith. Look for qualities of faith evident in people. Even look for folks who don’t walk in faith and examine some of the reasons why or what may be going on for them to not live a life of faith.
Today, I found a couple of things. First, in Genesis 4:26 it says, “At that time men began to call on the name of the LORD.” If faith is believing and trusting, what was it that they knew for them to trust in and call out to? How did the Lord reveal Himself for Him to be sought after? How did they know to ‘call on’ the name of the Lord? What did this kind of faith look like and did the Lord consider those calling out to be people of faith? Lots of unknowns there.
Secondly, what did the faith of Enoch look like. He is found in Genesis 5:21-24. The Bible says that he walked with God. What did that walk look like on an everyday scale? Then it says “God took him away.” Enoch is one of two people who did not die and earthly death, Elijah is the other. What was it about the faith of Enoch that he was taken away? Where did he learn to live the kind of life that pleased Father so much that he was here one minute and gone the next?
You get the idea. We are going to read through the entire Bible in 90 days. We will come across verses and people we have read before or are meeting for the first time. Allow the Holy Spirit to use their lives to help increase your faith (Luke 17:5)
