In that great faith chapter of Hebrews 11, the writer says: 39 And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith, did not receive the promise, 40 God having provided something better for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us. So what is faith? Faith adds its “yes” to what God has already spoken. Faith lets God finish the work that He started. Faith says “I believe” and patiently waits for God to do His part.
