About 3 years ago I had the opportunity to cross something off my bucket list: Visit Cooperstown and the Baseball Hall of Fame!!! It was fascinating!!! All that rich baseball history!!! Babe Ruth's bat!!! Willie Mays' glove!!! Jackie Robinson's jersey!!! Just to name a few!!!

It reminds me of an even more important Hall of Fame -- and that's the Hall of Faith in Hebrews 11:
"Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible." (Hebrews 11:1-3 NIV)

And then it starts a list BY FAITH:
Abel...
Enoch...
Noah...
Abraham...
Sarah...
Abraham...
Isaac...
Jacob...
Joseph...
Moses' parents...
Moses...
Israelites crossed the Red Sea...
Walls of Jericho fell...
Rahab...
And it lists more, "...whose weakness turned to strength!!!" (Hebrews 11:34)

When we live by faith, God shines through us!!! When we surrender our weaknesses to God and allow His strength to flow through us, He fulfills us for His glory!!! He rewards our surrendered weakness with His amazing strength!!!

"And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him!!!" (Hebrews 11:6 NIV) And then, with God's help, as we walk by faith, our names goes down in the Hall of Faith!!! God rewards those who diligently seek Him!!! Shout Now!!!
