By Faith

By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we see now did not come from anything that can be seen. Hebrews 11:3

Did you see it? We are in the 11th chapter of Hebrews in the “Hall of Fame” of faith! If you believe creation did not evolve but was spoken into being by a word from God, you too are in this amazing chapter of heroes who lived by faith, not sight.

This summer we visited the Ark Encounter. Its designer attempted to re-create what the ark could have looked like.  It was huge and amazing; however, many intelligent people discount the flood as a global calamity believing it was merely a regional event, a myth, or symbolic.


Those who dismiss these truths of divine creation and the flood recorded in Genesis may also question the historical accuracy of the resurrection or scoff at second coming of Jesus. After all, it has been thousands of years and He hasn’t returned (yet!).

We don’t need to explain every detail to be able to testify that what God says and how He reveals himself in scripture is true.  If we want to be heroes of faith, we affirm to our Lord, “I trust you and believe your promises even when I don’t understand.”

Without faith it is impossible to please God for we must believe God exists and rewards those who seek him. Hebrews 11:6
