NLT 39 “All these people earned a good reputation because of their faith, yet none of them received all that God had promised.”
So many of us have heard of Abraham, Moses, Joseph and many others who had great faith. These people walked in total faith with the Lord. They were given a vision and used faith to fuel their vision. Just as Hebrews 11 opens up with “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.” Hebrews 11:1. These men had great faith in what they could not see and had complete faith in what the Lord’s plan and vision was for them. But even then, with all of the amazing actions and faith they had in the Lord, God was still not done with them. God still had more great, amazing, and wonderful plans for their lives. As the scripture says “ yet none of them received all that God had promised.” Imagine what we could accomplish with having faith in the Lord? Faith is a powerful tool. If we place our faith in the Lord, His plans for us are Unlimited! (Ps. 119:96 Even perfection has its limits, but your commands have no limit.) There is no end to the things we can do with a vision from the Lord and by placing our Faith in Him!
