It was by faith that Noah heard God’s warnings about things he could not yet see. He obeyed God and built a large boat to save his family. By his faith, Noah showed that the world was wrong, and he became one of those who are made right with God through faith. It was by faith Abraham obeyed God’s call to go to another place God promised to give him. He left his own country, not knowing where he was to go.
It was by faith that he lived like a foreigner in the country God promised to give him. He lived in tents with Isaac and Jacob, who had received that same promise from God. Abraham was waiting for the city that has real foundations—the city planned and built by God. (Hebrews 11:7-10 NCV)
It may be hard to imagine having faith like Noah or Abraham. It should not be, unless you have a misguided idea about faith.
Faith is about trust. It is a personal trust relationship with God. It's foundation is not on this earth, nor anything we do, except putting our trust fully in God. ©Word-Strong_2014
