Hebrews 11 recalls the faith of Able, Abraham, Sarah, Moses, and others and what their faith accomplished. The magnitude of what God did through these prophets was incomprehensible. Who could have imagined all the wonders that God did?
The only thing these people had in common was their faith. We can easily want to focus just on the Mount Carmel experiences, the great victories we cherish, the parting of the Red Sea, or the raising of Lazarus the victory at Jericho. But it wasn’t these victories that defined them, it was their faith.
Should we ask for victory? Sure.
