The definition of faith in the book of Hebrews is always challenging. â€śNow faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not seeâ€ť (Hebrews 11:1, NIV). How can we be sure
about what we do not see? Yet, this is exactly what Moses illustrates in our memory verse: â€śHe persevered because he saw him who is invisibleâ€ť (Hebrews 11:27, NIV).
It is even more challenging to realize that we are called to see â€śhim who is invisibleâ€ť not simply when times are good but especially when everything is going wrong. For this we need faith, a Christlike faith that must be shaped by the truth about God and Godâ€™s kingdom. The truth about our Fatherâ€™s goodness, the power in the name of Jesus, the power of the Resurrection, and the compassion of God are essential truths that will enable us to stand strong when we are in the crucible and may be
tempted to doubt everything.
