Scripture reading for October 28th: Hebrews 11, Psalm 65, Proverbs 30
Key Scriptures: Hebrews 11:1-3, 6 “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the Word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. . . . .And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who seek Him.”
The writer of Hebrews reviewed past history of God’s people recorded in Scripture. Those who pleased God were those who by faith obeyed Him and lived a life of worship and trust, even when they did not receive what was promised. God always rewards those who seek Him and commends those with trusting faith. If we see it now, we don’t need faith. If we hear God speak, we can wait patiently for it to come to pass!
Faith Confession: I believe in God the Father and Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Maker of heaven and earth. I believe the universe was created by God’s powerful Word out of nothing. I am a new creation by believing His Word in Jesus Christ and await a full reward of eternal life.
Psalm 65:4-5 “Blessed is the one You choose and bring near, to dwell in Your courts! We shall be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, the holiness of Your temple! By awesome deeds You answer us with righteousness, O God of our salvation, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas; . .”
