Today’s Bible reading found me Hebrews 11. This is one of my favorite passages of Scripture! It just stirs me up inside! After reading it I always feel such great conviction. My heart just wants to scream “God, I wanna be like that!!!!” My prayer is the life I live speaks of my faith. It touches my heart to see the author of Hebrews using people who live hundreds of years ago as examples of faith. There faith stood the test of time and we remember them long after they’ve parted. I want faith like that!
My favorite section of this chapter is verses 8-11:
By an act of faith, Abraham said yes to God’s call to travel to an unknown place that would become his home. When he left he had no idea where he was going. By an act of faith he lived in the country promised him, lived as a stranger camping in tents. Isaac and Jacob did the same, living under the same promise. Abraham did it by keeping his eye on an unseen city with real, eternal foundations—the City designed and built by God.
I want to be like Abraham. I want to keep my eyes on an unseen city with real, eternal foundations. My heart is drawn to thought that this is not where I belong. This world is not my home. In fact, my current favorite song is “Where I Belong” by Switchfoot. It speaks to this concept – the fact that we’re still searching for a world where we belong. I thought I would post a link so I could share it with you. I hope you enjoy one of my favorite heart songs!
