Tuesday Family Devotion - Faith

Scripture Reading - Hebrews 11:1-3
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.

By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

Thought of the Day
It can be hard to follow God all the time. It can be hard to believe all the things we are told in the Bible. Sometimes God’s miracles seem too outrageous and sometimes He asks too much of us. It can be hard to stay faithful when life gets hard and busy. But God has given us many examples of how He keeps His promises in the world. The Bible is full of God’s miracles to His people. When we have trouble being faithful and trusting God, we can look to His Word to guide us. And when we are faithful and trust in God, He will care for us. He will watch over us, we just have to have a little faith.

Discussion questions
1. What are some times when you find it hard to have faith in God?

2. What are some ways that you can remind yourself to have faith when those times come?

3. How can we remind others when they are having trouble being faithful?

Dear God,
It can take faith to trust in you sometimes. It can be hard to see your work in the world. Help us remember to look to your Word, the Bible, when we feel our faith slipping away. Help us stay strong in our faith in you, because we know that you will always care for us. AMEN.
