By Faith

By Faith
Faith is assurance,

in what we can’t see.

Trusting devotion,

in Him whose worthy.

By faith we step out,

move forward in trust;

that He’ll be our help,

to do what we must.

Without faith in God,

we can never please;

our Lord, Creator,

Who made land and seas.

The way to see God,

comes by faith, not sight;

our final reward,

forever, His light.

Light for the seekers,

His love for the lost;

He has made the way,

paid ultimate cost.

By faith, those before,

have shown us the way;

to seek and find God,

how to trust always.

(Responding to Hebrews 11)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for all of the men and women who have gone before us and have modeled lives lived by faith. Thank You that as we trust in You, we have the assurance of eternity with You. Thank You that as we seek You, You meet us where we are, and You equip us to move forward in faith. Forgive us for wavering, and help us to have a steadfast faith in You. May our lives lived in unwavering faith, lead many to find and follow You. Amen.
