Devo Will I find faith Part 5
Hebrews 11:8-16 (KJV)
8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. 9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: 10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. 11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised. 12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable. 13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. 14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. 15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. 16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
Well we’re back to Hebrews. These people were men and women of faith, but you may say pastor they did not receive all that was promised them? No but they did receive deposits or substance of better things to come. Many people ask me to pray that God would take them back to where they once were with Him? They want to live on manna, milk but not real spiritual food. Real food came after the mana stopped and they entered the promise land. They had to grow up and do for themselves. People need to grow up and do as Jesus did and quit expecting him to do it all for them. Stand on the authority they been given, pick up the sword, and take what God says is theirs. I don’t care about this world it’s going to burn up people. God has something better. He will give you deposits in this life as you walk by faith, but the things of this life are not the ends of what God has in store for us. They are but a mirror image of what is yet to come. Get your eyes on Jesus not the dollar or other material things. Some think that if God would just do this or that they would be satisfied and happy. Not so, that is a worldly point of view. God knows you need these things to live but seek Him first and His righteousness and He will take care of the rest.
