Examples of Faith Part 2 & Breakfast Croissants

1 Corinthians 2:5 (tpt)

For God intended that your faith not be established on man’s wisdom but by trusting in his almighty power.

Yesterday, we began looking at examples in scripture of people who chose to live by faith. As a quick recap, we’re diving into those stories in the Bible that showcase complete trust in God and His power. Without it, most of these characters wouldn’t have survived. Let’s pick back up where we left off with 2 more examples.

  1. Moses – We ended yesterday’s examples by looking Moses and his commitment to speaking out against and standing up to Pharaoh. Today, we’re following his journey as he moves beyond simply talking about freedom and begins the process of fulfilling God’s promises to the Israelites. They’ve started their escape, and Pharaoh has decided to chase after them. At this point, Moses trusted the Lord, but he had no clue how God was going to make this escape happen for them. The people were giving up, the Egyptian army was closing in on them, and all he had was his walking stick, and some faith. Luckily, that was all he needed. In Exodus 14:16, God lays out His plan before Moses. “Raise the walking stick in your hand over the Red Sea, and the sea will split. Then the people can go across on dry land (ERV).” Well if that isn’t worthy of a chuckle in the middle of a stressful situation. Thanks God, you always know how to lighten the mood. Now, what’s the real plan? That’s not a quote, just what I imagine Moses said.. or at the very least, what I would say. But God wasn’t joking. That was the plan. Part the waters of the sea using a stick, and then walk through it, away from your enemies, toward freedom, as you trust that the walls of water will hold until you pass. Can you imagine the first step that Moses took? The only thing scarier then that would be the steps right in the middle of the sea; the point of no return. “Moses raised his hand over the Red Sea, and the Lord caused a strong wind to blow from the east. The wind blew all night long. The sea split, and the wind made the ground dry.” Exodus 14:21 ERV
  2. Joshua – Joshua was the the next in line to lead the Israelites after Moses’ death. They are still on their journey after escaping from Egypt toward the land that God promised them. They arrived to the city of Jericho and found that the gates were closed. In order to attack and take over the city, they first had to get inside. Joshua had no idea what was going on behind those walls. Were they preparing for a battle? Would there be a surprise attack? But the Lord instructed him on how to get inside, and to be honest, it sounded a little out-of-the-ordinary, to say the least. “March around the city with your army once every day for six days. Tell seven of the priests to carry trumpets made from the horns of male sheep and to march in front of the priests who are carrying the Holy Box. On the seventh day march around the city seven times and tell the priests to blow the trumpets while they march. They will make one loud noise from the trumpets. When you hear that noise, tell all the people to begin shouting. When you do this, the walls of the city will fall down and your people will be able to go straight into the city (Joshua 6:3-5 ERV).” Prior to the Lord’s instructions, Joshua had no plans or preparations made. Without the Lord’s help, they wouldn’t have succeeded in that battle. They may not have finally come to the land that the Lord promised them. But Joshua’s faith is what brought him to that place of victory. “The man answered, ‘I am not an enemy. I am the commander of the Lord’s army. I have just now come to you.’ Then Joshua bowed his face to the ground to show respect and said, ‘I am your servant. Does my master have a command for me?’’ Joshua 5:14 ERV
