Text: Hebrews Chapters 10 & 11
“Let us hold fast the confession of faith without wavering for He is faithful that promised.”
The realm of faith is a real place that has borders, perimeters, and boundaries. Just as you can live in the city or out of the city, you can live inside faith or outside of faith. The determining factor is your obedience to the assignment God has given you.
God wants you to be located at the address of faith — for this is the location He deems the most valuable and profitable for your life. A place of faith for you is being exactly where God told you to be and then staying right there — resolutely — in that place of faith.
The eleventh chapter of Hebrews is all about men and women who lived in faith. They each received a word from God for their lives or for their generation. Faith was the location where they lived — and because they stayed in that place where God had called them, they received their promise and changed their generations.
