The hall of faith from Hebrews 11 is comprised of a compelling variety of characters. It’s amazing how God used ordinary men and women in such extraordinary ways. But God is practical. He knew it would be important for us to find ourselves somewhere in their story, both to encourage us and to propel us to be counted among those who through “faith and patience inherit the promises”. These men and women were facing enormous adversities that challenged their faith. Like them, we must overcome intimidation and insecurity. Thankfully God has given us great weapons to defeat our greatest enemies—insecurity, fear, and discouragement. Will you pick them up and fight?
