Hebrews 11:4 By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.
We live in a social media world, in other words it’s rather easy to get noticed…for at least a few seconds…just long enough for someone to click “Like” or to retweet something before they move on to the next catch picture or phrase.
Abel, son to Adam and Eve and brother to Cain, had a faith that was noticed. The Bible says “…by which he obtained witness…”. This means that his faith was taken notice of by those around him, and ultimately by God.
During difficult situations, such as we’re facing in these last days, while others are fretting, wringing their hands, and wondering what’s next, does your faith in God and a better tomorrow stay strong to where people around you take notice of it and are encouraged by it also?
If your faith isn’t where it should be, you can reach out to God in prayer and ask Him to strengthen your faith so that you may stand strong in the days of adversity. The Bible says in Hebrews 10:39 But we are not of them who draw back… We don’t draw back into fear and uncertainty like those who have no hope, but rather we draw closer to God and allow Him to strengthen our faith and we let our faith rest in His ability.
Next time you are tempted to allow fear and discouragement to set in, just remember that God already has provided a way to have strong faith, and that kind of faith is what gets noticed by others.
