Trust: Tested and Manifested

Hebrews 11:13-16.  Abraham trusts God with his unique son Isaac.  Trust is found at that exact point where our wishes hopes and dreams crash head on into God’s will.


The Ark of Faith

The first seven verses of chapter 11 show us three portraits of trust hung in the Pre-flood (Antediluvian) Room of the Gallery of Trust. We saw in Abel’s portrait that trust worships in total dependence upon the Promised Seed alone. We saw in Enoch’s portrait that trust walks (fellowship) with God. And we see in Noah’s portrait that trust works; it lives according to God’s revelation.

In Hebrews 11:1-3 & 7, Noah shows us the work of Biblical trust. We live according to what we trust. Noah did three things: (1) he measured the present against the future; (2) he measured the visible against the invisible; and, (3) he measured the world against God.
