Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 04/24/16

This week’s scripture is from Hebrews:

Oak acorns B&W“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”   (Hebrews 11.1)

For the Lord said if we but have faith the size of a mustard seed, then nothing would be impossible. Faith is knowing; faith is trusting. Faith is not wishing and being unsure what will happen. If we scatter seed it will grow. We do not hope seeds will grow, we know seeds grow. That is what they do. What is more, we know that if we plant a mustard seed, then a mustard plant will grow. If we plant an acorn a mighty oak will grow. The tree is already in the seed. The Lord already put it there. We must know that we know and forsake doubt; we must know and have faith that what we know is what is true and it will happen as the Lord wills it to happen. Faith is believing in what we know. Faith is knowing without having to see the tree.

May the Lord bless you with an abiding faith in Him.
