Sees the invisible, feels the intangible and achieves the impossible
Who among us at some point in time hasn’t felt lonely and estranged from the ones we love? We long to be once again reunited with the ones we love. As we stated earlier, hope means to cherish a desire with anticipation. This too is how God feels about you, His creation, with whom He once had perfect fellowship and love.
Guilt and shame tarnished our relationship, but God already had a plan of redemption in place; namely, the crucifixion and resurrection of the Messiah, Jesus Christ. God himself would pay for our redemption from death.
This concept of redemption plays out all through scripture, so much so that this series on hope looks at the lives of the great characters of faith in scripture and their hope that the promises of God were true. Their examples motivated Paul to write:
“For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us so that through endurance and the encouragement of the scriptures, we might have hope” (Romans 15:4)
As we scan the scriptures and observe the lives of some of the great names of faith, we will find that they are very much like yours and mine, imperfect and with all the human emotions we have—fear, joy, love, sadness, surprise, and anger. Yes, they made some terrible decisions. But their hope in their God always came through. “Now, faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for” (Hebrews 11:1-2).
Heroes of Faith
As we take a closer look at some of the heroes of the faith, we shall see one common denominator. It is that trust in God.
Trust in God enables believers to press on regardless of the circumstances and what the future may hold, their hope in God to deliver them from these trials, better equipped in their understanding of their faith in the unseen God. It is this understanding that enabled the apostle Paul to write the following verses in scripture. “Therefore, we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all, so we fix our eyes not on what is seen but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:16-18).
So in everyday language, putting your future happiness in the physical is risky. But putting your faith in God’s promises is profitable. I have often told clients that if they spent fifty percent more of their time considering God’s promises rather than worrying about their job, mortgage, or kids’ college fund, they would be at greater peace with themselves and, in turn, be more productive.
So on that note, let’s take a closer look at some of these heroes of the faith.
