I love reading the Hebrews chapter of faith stories. Those people listed did some really hard things because of their faith in God.
Faith in His faithfulness.
Faith in His promises.
Faith in His trustworthiness.
Faith in Him.
That's the key. When our faith is placed in the Only One who is Good, True, Just, Almighty, Faithful; and when we rely on His power instead of our own, He will do amazing things through us. We may never see or understand what we're being asked to do on this side of eternity, but the day will come when we will see clearly, and we will be amazed!
Until then, we must not only have faith, but act on that faith!
