The Kitchen Table Devotional: The Game of Life Day 89
Navigating Life’s Highways
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. 2 For by it the men of old gained approval.
Faith will birth conviction, the proof that we believe. Faith not only convinces us about truth, but it convicts us to live in that truth. The proof of faith is in the conviction of faith. Conviction happens when what we believe is not just in but on. We believe in Jesus, but do we believe Jesus? Get the picture? And this conviction, this proof, that we believe brings approval, approval in life and approval for life. This kind of faith gives us approval before God and the approval to live like God in this life. By this kind of faith, the men of old gained approval to be the witness of God. It’s powerful!
