My Daily Bread – Blessed?
Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD. Blessed are they that keep His testimonies, and that seek Him with the whole heart.
Teaching.Only.Sound.Doctrine? But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine. Keeping Faith. Give me a faith that trusts You wholeheartedly, LORD. Without faith it is impossible to please GOD. Our greatest comfort in sorrow is to know that GOD is in control. Hebrews 11 – the Hall of Faith.
But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine.
Psalms 119:1-2 KJV
Without faith it is impossible to please GOD. Hebrews 11:6
It’s tempting to think of faith as a kind of magic formula. If you muster up enough of it, you’ll get rich, stay healthy, and live a contented life with automatic answers to all your prayers. But life does not work according to such neat formulas. As proof, the author of Hebrews presents a stirring reminder of what constitutes “true faith” by reviewing the lives of some Old Testament giants of faith (Heb. 11).
Our greatest comfort in sorrow is to know that GOD is in control.
Hebrews 11 has been called the Hall of Faith. In it we read of diverse people who faced trials and tribulations far beyond what most of us face. Yet all persevered by trusting the LORD. By the grace of GOD, we can do the same.
