Every year we gather for Thanksgiving; sometimes with family, sometimes with friends. Regardless of where we gather or who we gather with, there is a lot that we all have to be thankful for. God has so richly blessed us beyond anything that we could ever have earned or deserved. It is important for us to take a break and give thanks to God for His many blessings, even when we are still waiting for the blessings to come.
The author of Hebrews 11 shares some of the most compelling stories of how people have trusted God by faith. The chapter is often referred to as a “Hall of Fame of Faith” and surpasses any story you will hear around your Thanksgiving table of just how faithful God is and worthy of our thanksgiving. This week, we will take a fresh look at some of these stories of faith and see just what it takes to be able to truly have something miraculous to give God thanks for.
