A Daily Devotion for Thursday, November 11


Hebrews 11:1


Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

In my bible, I have written the second translation in tiny pencilled letters next to the printed verse. I remember the verse as it is written in pencil, because that is the translation I grew up with! I love the word ”assurance” being part of the verse. Faith and assurance go together. If we are fortunate, our parents taught us assurance by being there for us, every day, with their love and protection. We couldn’t see them when we were in school, but we knew they would return to us, and we knew they loved us. God is constant and dependable, like the best parent imaginable.

Holy Lord, you have taught me “blessed assurance”: Jesus is mine! Amen
