It can be easy to doubt God's promises will come to pass. Gideon did. Can God still use us if our faith falters?

"And the angel of the LORD appeared to [Gideon] and said to him, 'The LORD is with you, O mighty man of valor'” (Judges 6:12 ESV).

God didn't give Joshua a battle plan to conquer Jericho by the sword, but He did promise the walls would fall if Joshua had faith. How is God calling you to have faith in His promises?

After Jesus ascended to the right hand of the Father, His apostles continued to spread His message to new disciples. What is a disciple? What does Jesus expect of disciples?

"Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, 'Brothers, what shall we do?'” (Acts 2:37 ESV).

Jesus is the way to eternal life. He once explained this by comparing Himself to the bronze serpent Moses used to save the Israelites in the wilderness. What's the connection? Why are we saved because Jesus was lifted up on a cross?

"And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life" (John 3:14-15).

God didn't redeem Israel from Egypt only to abandon them to Pharaoh's armies. He split the Red Sea for their escape, and by faith, they crossed as on dry land. How is God directing us to walk by faith today?

"By faith the people crossed the Red Sea as on dry land, but the Egyptians, when they attempted to do the same, were drowned" (Hebrews 11:29).

Jesus was crucified, but He did not stay in the grave. He bodily resurrected, leaving the tomb empty and giving us hope of eternal life in Him. Happy Easter!

"And [the angel] said to them, 'Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him'" (Mark 16:6 ESV).

The Hall of Faith in Hebrews offers fascinating comparison between Moses and Jesus. If Jesus is the prophet like Moses, what is Moses like?

“By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter, choosing rather to be mistreated with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. He considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking...

The chief priests delivered Jesus to Pilate and stirred up the crowds to demand His crucifixion. Despite all this, Jesus had steadfast resolution to endure the cross for the joy that was set before Him. How can we have faith like Jesus in the darkest moments?

"And Pilate again said to them, 'Then what shall I do with the man you call the King of the Jews?' And they cried out again, 'Crucify him'” (Mark 15:12–13 ...

Hours after the Last Supper, Jesus was let down, betrayed, and forsaken. In all this, though, Jesus submitted to His Heavenly Father and asked for His will to be done. How can we as disciples of Jesus submit to God's will in our own lives?

"And he said, 'Abba, Father, all things are possible for you. Remove this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will'” (Mark 14:36 ESV).

Like Jesus, Moses was nearly killed as an infant by an evil king. It was by the faith of Moses' parents Amram and Jochebed that his life was spared. How can we learn from them to fear God and not man?

“By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden for three months by his parents, because they saw that the child was beautiful, and they were not afraid of the king's edict” (Hebrews 11:23).

Jesus said all the Law and the Prophets are based upon loving God and loving others. How did Jesus model this love, and how can we do the same?

Joseph's life was full of struggles, but his faith in God was unshakable. Even as Joseph was dying, he believed God's promises would all come to pass. How do we trust God when our circumstances are overwhelming?

“By faith Joseph, at the end of his life, made mention of the exodus of the Israelites and gave directions concerning his bones” (Hebrews 11:22).
