Abraham — “Father of Faith”
The bible refers to Abraham as the “Father of Faith.” He received a promise from God that he would be the father of many nations, yet despite the fact that it looked impossible for him and his wife to have children, he chose to believe God would honor His promise. Abraham is a great example for us! Read about his faith in Romans 4:13-21.

Let’s take a moment to ask God to reveal his promises to us, or think of a verse/promise from the Bible that God has reminded you of recently. Take a hold of that word, stir up your faith and think of a way that you can act on it. Hebrews 11 is about some great people of faith and the great things they did through faith in God.
Lord Jesus, thank You that Your Word is true. I grab hold of it and believe that by Your mighty power You can make Your promises a reality in my life.
