And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gideon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
It just can’t be said enough! FAITH pleases God! It’s amazing that God takes a whole chapter to list individuals, as well as the categories of people, who had great FAITH! God wants you to know just how important the FAITH of previous generations are to the next generation. There is someone coming behind you who will be affected by your FAITH! Stop and ask God to keep your FAITH strong and focused!
