For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise: “For yet a little while, And He who is coming will come and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.” But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul.
-Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Heb 11:1). Faith is as good as the object in which it is placed. The will of man is a component of the soul and when we place our faith in God; it activates obedience. The process of faith in Christ grows through increasing incremental acts of obedience through His word which is alive and active sharper than any double-edged sword, separating the soul and spirit, joints and marrow; leading to intimacy with God and energizing greater trust in Him. Faith is thus pursuing what is not yet seen over that which is known so that we may receive His reward according to the promise. We should therefore endure to the end placing our faith in Jesus Christ Who dwells within us that we may receive salvation for our souls. Just like Abraham had faith and it was accounted to him for righteousness, we are called to have faith in God who justifies us according to the riches of His glory. God is well pleased with those who hold fast their faith in Him, He rewards all those who diligently seek Him and bestows His blessings upon us together with our descendants.
Increase our faith in You Jesus, we humbly pray. Guide us as we hope for that which is not yet seen over that which is seen and that which invisible over that which is visible; until we come to final glory with You Lord. Grant us the desires of your heart as we always seek to do Your will and make all our plans succeed. Cause us to flourish with our children according to the riches of Your glory, we humbly ask You Lord. Bless us Dear Jesus and increase us, make Your face shine upon us and be gracious to us. Shine Your face upon us and give us peace. Amen
