Biblical Examples Of Faith: Pt 1

We need to stand firm in our beliefs in God’s promises just like Noah, Abraham and Sarah.”
There are many examples of faith in the Bible that demonstrate trust and obedience to God.  To trust God is to believe in His integrity, rely
on His strength, and to know He is able to help you.  We can use these examples to help us learn how use our faith
Noah was warned by God about the storm that was coming.  Without any evidence, Noah started preparing for the storm.  He started
building, and he started storing supplies.  There are times in our lives that we are warned about things to come, and we have a choice to
make.  Do we listen to that still small voice and start preparing, or do we ignore it?  We should trust God’s guidance, and He will not lead
us wrong.

Abraham was another excellent example of faith and obedience to God’s leading.  He left what was familiar and comfortable and
set out on a journey of faith that would lead him to not just a new land but to a land of promise.  He did not know where he was going,
but because he felt God’s guidance, he went out in faith.  There are times in life when we are called to go to new, unfamiliar places.  It
could be a new job, a new state, or a new church, but the key is to know that God is acting in our best interest and would never lead us
in the wrong direction.  Trusting God means knowing that He would never lead us to a dry land but instead to a land that is full of
promise.  

By faith Sarah conceived as an older woman because she believed that God was faithful to His promise.  This example shows not
only the faithfulness of God, but the willingness to do whatever it takes to fulfill God’s promise in life.  As a woman of age, carrying a
baby to term would have been somewhat awkward.  Sometimes the things God calls us to do are awkward.  They don’t always feel
great, but the promise that is fulfilled is what we want to receive.  

Abraham had to believe, as well as take action for God’s promise to come to pass.  As time went on, he did not waver at the promise of
God through unbelief.  He was strengthened in faith, gave glory to God, and was fully convinced that what “He had promised He was
also able to perform” (Romans 4:20-21).

Can you imagine God giving you a blessing and then asking you to make a sacrifice with the blessing?  That is what happened with
Abraham.  God promised them a baby, Sarah conceived and bore Isaac, and then God asked Abraham to make Isaac a sacrifice.  
Abraham’s trust and faith in the Lord was a tremendous example for us.  

These are only three of the many examples of faith that are in the Bible.  We can see from these examples how God keeps His promises
to those who remain faithful.  We need to stand firm in our beliefs in God’s promises just like Noah, Abraham and Sarah.
