Hebrews 11:27 - Faith Over Feeling.

Hebrews 11:27 (NLT) It was by faith that 
Moses left the land of Egypt, not fearing the 
kings anger. He kept right on going because he 
kept his eyes on the one who is invisible.  


Faith That Persists Above Feelings
   There is a strong belief in our culture 
that influences every one of us, whether we want 
it to or not: If it feels good, do it.  
   But this kind of thinking allows you to 
be manipulated by your moods - making you live 
according to your feelings. God wants you to live a 
different kind of life. He wants you to live a life of 
faith, not a life of feelings. 
   We dont always feel like doing the 
right thing. I dont know about you, but I 
dont always feel like being nice to people. I 
dont always feel like stopping what Im doing 
to help someone. I dont always feel like 
believing Gods promises for my life. 
   But our goal as believers is to develop 
the kind of faith that persists above feelings. 
You deepen your relationship with God when you 
spend time with him, even on days when you dont 
feel like it. 
   Its like an Olympic athlete exercising 
when she doesnt feel like it or a great 
musician practicing his craft, even when hes 
tired. Its the same with your relationship with 
   People who have a regular, consistent 
quiet time with God didnt get there because 
they felt like spending time with God every 
single morning. They got there because they woke up 
and decided to read the Bible and pray, even 
when they didnt feel like it. 
   Faith is being persistent. Faith is 
refusing to give up no matter how tired you are or 
how many other things you wish you could be 
   Through the example of Moses, the Bible 
shows us how to begin to develop persistence. 
Hebrews 11:27 says, It was by faith that Moses 
left the land of Egypt, not fearing the kings 
anger. He kept right on going because he kept his 
eyes on the one who is invisible (NLT). 
   Thats how you get there. Thats how 
you persist. You begin to see the invisible. 
Only those who see God for who he really is can 
persist in the most difficult times of life. Only 
those who see the invisible can do the impossible. 
   Believe in faith what God can do in your 
life, and thank him in advance for how he is going 
to work. [Daily Devotional by Rick Warren: 


Think of Moses, what endurance and patience 
characterized his life. Paul, in his Epistle to the 
Hebrews, says: For he endured, as seeing Him who 
is invisible. The character that Paul thus 
ascribes to Moses does not mean simply passive 
resistance of evil, but perseverance in the right. He 
kept the Lord ever before him, and the Lord was 
ever at his right hand to help him. 5T651 

Many suppose that in following Christ they 
will be obliged to be gloomy and disconsolate, 
because they are required to deny themselves the 
pleasures and follies that the world indulge in. The 
living Christian will be filled with cheerfulness 
and peace, because he lives as seeing Him who is 
invisible; and those who seek Christ in His true 
character have within them the elements of everlasting 
life, because they are partakers of the divine 
nature, having escaped the corruptions that are in 
the world through lust. Jesus said, This is 
the Fathers will which hath sent me, that of 
all which he hath given me, I should lose 
nothing, but should raise it up again at the last 
day. And this is the will of him that sent me, 
that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth 
on him, may have everlasting life: and I will 
raise him up at the last day (John 6:39, 40). 


Choose Faith over Fear and Feelings
   Either we live by faith or we live by 
   The Bible says of Moses in Hebrews 11:27, 
By faith he left Egypt, not fearing the 
kings anger; he persevered because he saw him who 
is invisible (NIV). 
   Moses teaches us that living by faith 
rather than by fear is a choice. 
   He went to the most powerful man in the 
world and said, You know those slaves that are 
building all your pyramids? Im taking them, and 
were all leaving. Youre not going to have 
slave labor anymore. Let my people go. 
   Moses had every reason to be afraid. He 
was going up against a powerful man who was 
considered a god, and whatever Pharaoh said, you had to 
do. What he said was the law. And here came 
Moses and declared, We arent going to do 
what you say anymore. Im not afraid of you 
because I report to a higher authority. That took 
some guts! 
   Do you want that same kind of faith in 
your life so you can overcome your fear? The 
closer you get to God, the more youre going to 
be filled with faith. The further away you get 
from God, the more youre going to be filled 
with fear. 
   I cannot overemphasize the importance of 
faith for the rest of your life. The Bible says 
that whatever is not of faith is sin. How many 
times did you sin this week? A lot. So did I. 
Because anything I did that wasnt done in faith 
but was done in doubt was a sin. The Bible also 
says that without faith it is impossible to 
please God. How many times did you please God this 
   Do you want something to change in your 
life? Instead of complaining, start believing. God 
is not moved by complaints. God is moved by 
faith, a truth we see in these words of Jesus: 
According to your faith let it be done to you 
(Matthew 9:29 NIV). You get to choose what he does in 
your life. 
   Heres the key: What matters is not the 
size of your faith but the size of the God you 
put it in. A little faith in a big God gets big 
results! [Daily Devotional by Rick Warren: 


   I am with you in all that you do, even in 
the most menial task. I am always aware of you, 
concerned with every detail of your life. Nothing 
escapes My notice - not even the number of hairs on 
your head. However, your awareness of My Presence 
falters and flickers; as a result, your life 
experience feels fragmented. When your focus is broad 
enough to include Me in your thoughts, you feel 
safe and complete. When your perception narrows 
so that problems or details fill your 
consciousness, you feel empty and incomplete.  
   Learn to look steadily at Me in all your 
moments and all your circumstances. Though the world 
is unstable and in flux, you can experience 
continuity through your uninterrupted awareness of My 
Presence. Fix your gaze on what is unseen, even as the 
visible world parades before your eyes. (Mat. 
10:29-31; Heb. 11:27; 2Co. 4:18) [Jesus Calling by 
Sarah Young]
