Have faith in God
In HIS Presence


Read: Hebrews 11:1-40

Meditation verse:

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6


The bible describes faith as the substance of what we hope for, and the evidence of the things we cannot see. What this means is that when we pray to God, even though we have not yet seen the manifestation of an answer, our faith is what we must hold on to as the evidence that God has answered our prayers. Faith is the substance we hold on to, even when the manifestation tarries. Faith says, “even though I can’t see the answers, I am confident that God is faithful and that He has answered my prayers in the way He deems best”. Doubt on the other hand says, “unless I see, I will not believe that God has answered”.

Faith moves people to act in ways that may otherwise seem foolish. Imagine Noah building an ark of great dimensions in preparation of a flood, no one else believed was coming. He must have been mocked and laughed at. Imagine Abraham at an advanced age leaving his familiar homeland to an unknown place at God’s instruction. The bible says he went out, not knowing where he was going. Hebrews 11 referred to as “faith’s walk of fame” highlights various exploits accomplished by ordinary men and women. Through faith, kingdoms were subdued, and promises were obtained. The weak become strong, the dead were brought back to life, and many endured all kinds of hardships.

What exploits have you set your heart to accomplish this year? What is that seemingly impossible task before you? Why not engage the power of faith. Faith transforms impossibilities to possibilities. “Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:1-2)


IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye.
Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest."

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.

If you prayed this prayer, send me an email at rockteachingministry@gmail.com

I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.
