Scripture Passage:  Hebrews 11

 The following are my notes taken during my pastor's sermon.

God wants us to have a strong, resilient faith. 

How to Fuel Your Faith

1.  Get in the Word.

2.  Realize you either just came out of a trial or you are in the middle of one.  Use that trial to build up others.
Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward.  For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised. - Hebrews 10:35-36
When we are allowed to stay in difficult circumstances, it is to mature our faith.
Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. - 2 Timothy 3:12
Strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying, “Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.” - Acts 14:22
We were never promised a life without problems.  We were promised His presence IN our problems.

*Faith allows us to experience God's power.

*Faith trusts God's purposes.
Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  Just as it is written,
For Your sake we are being put to death all day long;
We were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. - Romans 8:35-37
Who is among you that fears the Lord,
That obeys the voice of His servant,
That walks in darkness and has no light?
Let him trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God. - Isaiah 50:10
 If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world. - CS Lewis
