Heroes of Faith 

Hebrews 11:33-34 “By faith these people overthrew kingdoms, ruled with justice, and received what God had promised them. They shut the mouths of lions, quenched the flames of fire, and escaped death by the edge of the sword. Their weakness was turned to strength. They became strong in battle and put whole armies to flight.”


This chapter is all about the heroes of the faith, people from the past who did incredible things! You would think they were such amazing people with incredibly large faith to be able to do what they did. And yet here is the key, it says “their weakness was turned to strength”. They were normal people who faced the same doubts and fears we do, but they put their trust in God to fill their gaps. In the areas where they were weak, they trusted God to make the difference. You see, it’s not about our faith, it’s about His. It’s not about our strength, it’s about His. It’s ALL about Him! And the sooner we get that, the sooner God can use us for His glory!

“Abba, You want a humble heart so that our pride won’t get in the way of Your plans. I surrender my heart, my will, my mind to You. Use me for Your glory. Be magnified in my life, through Jesus Christ my Lord, amen.”
