Free Friday! {Hebrews 11:1-2}

This month our Free Friday! {printables} have a theme.


In fact, this one and the 2 that follow are a set designed by 517 Creations in fall colors, so that you can display them together in your home as a reminder of our great God.

We believe it is extremely important to have scripture readily available so we can stand against the devil and his lies. It is good to have it displayed in your home or on your computer {in a place where you see it often} so that you and your family can begin to "hide it in your hearts."

I simply love this passage of scripture. Have you read it?

What incredible faith the saints who have gone before us displayed. They did things that I am not sure any of us could say with certainty that we would do if God asked us to.

Can you imagine how crazy people must have thought Noah was for building that gigantic boat and talking about flooding when there was no sign of rain?

And what about Moses? He grew up "the son of Pharoah's daughter" yet "he chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a short time."

He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward. {Hebrews 11:26}

Or take Joshua and the people of Jericho. I am sure they were considered idiots for thinking the walls would fall if they simply marched around them for 7 days. And yet they did.

And the craziest part is that most of these saints never even saw "the promised land."

All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. {Hebrews 11:13}

These were commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised. {Hebrews 11:39}

What about you? Are you believing God for the things he has promised in his word?

Can you say with assurance and conviction that God does keep his promises?

Are you listening to the Voice of Truth?
