Hebrews 11:27 (NLT)
27 It was by faith that Moses left the land of Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger. He kept right on going because he kept his eyes on the one who is invisible.

Here the Apostle Paul is writing to the Hebrews to encourage them in their faith of God. Paul provides examples of people who exhibited faith as a means for understanding. In the verse above Moses was once such example of great faith as he led the Israelites out of Egypt.

Because of sin that entered the world, Man believes he must do something to deserve salvation. Many of the religions of the world encourage their followers to perform duties in order to gain “God’s” approval. The problem becomes that the person who does the work is the person who receives credit. So if Man performs what he thinks is necessary for salvation then he gets the credit and not God. Jesus says in John 8:54, “If I glorify Myself, My glory is nothing; it is My Father who glorifies Me”. God has provided what is needed for salvation through Jesus Christ. Everything necessary for justification and freedom from sin is found in Him. We receive this free gift of salvation through faith. Faith is accepting the testimony of the invisible God as truth. Faith is not the same as trust in that trust follows faith. Faith is the acceptance of what God has done, while trust is the expectation of what God will do. Faith is not the same as believing, because one can believe facts and then never trust. James 2:19 says, “You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror.” So when one has faith they follow God trusting what He will do in their lives. Do you trust what God can do in your life? If so you are following in faith. Praise God for the precious salvation of Jesus Christ. Keep your faith in what Christ has done and not of yourself. Walk in trust proving your faith.
