Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step. – Martin Luther King Jr.

When it comes to faith there’s going to be waiting involved. We can trust God to do what is best for us at the right time. Even when we are forced to wait, God often reinforces his promises to us and reminds us of his presence. It might be through his Word, by a whisper, through a person, or simply through our believing by faith that He is with us.

If you want to strengthen your faith, there is no better place to look than the book of Hebrews. In chapter 11 we find the “Faith Hall of Fame”. So many people who struggled, waited, lived by faith, a saw God’s promises fulfilled. We read of impossible trials, people going through unbelievable things yet ultimately experiencing a new level of intimacy with God.

By faith, Noah obeyed God and built an ark, saving his family. By faith Abraham and Sarah received the son God promised them, even though they were past the age of childbearing. By faith, Joseph overcame betrayal, false accusations, and imprisonment to save the nation of Israel. By faith, the Israelites marched around the walls of Jericho, and the walls came tumbling down.

All these people had their struggles and doubts, but they persevered in their faith and waited on God again and again.

Think about it: if you had everything figured out, you wouldn’t need faith. But when you don’t understand something that gives you the unique opportunity to deepen your faith.

“The vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.” Habakkuk 2:3
