Behind the Music (BTM)
In reading the book Hebrews I came across 11:1. “Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we don’t see.” And surrounding this verse is story after story of individuals who had faith and though they didn’t always know the who, what, when, where or why…they followed God’s direction or commanding summons. These are more than fairytales. These are stories, historical documents of what actually happened to real people. And the more I camped on that, that these people were real, the stories are real, and that we share the same Heavenly Father who calls ME to be obedient, the more alive these stories became. I started putting myself in their shoes. What would it have been like to be Noah on the ark, when the door shut and his extended family was still outside, perhaps pounding on the door to be let in? (His wife, sons and their wives were with him.) We need to remember that God came through with Noah! We need to remember God came through with Abraham! We need to remember God came through with Moses! We need to remember that these were real people just like you and me.
