Hebrews 11.32-35 – January 9, 2020

Matthew 10.42

“And what more shall I say? I do not have time to tell about Gideon, Barak, Samson and Jephthah, about David and Samuel and the prophets, 33 who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions, 34 quenched the fury of the flames, and escaped the edge of the sword; whose weakness was turned to strength; and who became powerful in battle and routed foreign armies. 35 Women received back their dead, raised to life again. There were others who were tortured, refusing to be released so that they might gain an even better resurrection.” (Hebrews 11.32-35, NIV)

The whole chapter is good, but 32-35 reminds me that my faith in him can overcome anything.

Thought Questions:

When you look at the list of things in the passage above, how many of them seem beyond your ability, even impossible to accomplish? What would you say is the difference between the people listed in the passages above and you?

How does our faith in God allow us to do things we think would otherwise be impossible?

What events have happened in your life that you would you have considered impossible, had it not been for God’s help and your faith in him?

What challenges do you face today that, in view of your faith in God, are really know big deal?
