Bible heroes – What would we do without these extraordinary men and women? Their courage, strength, integrity, faith, and love for the Lord uplift your soul. Here are a few selected ones. Let’s take a look!
David – a mighty warrior and King;
Joseph of Nazareth – an ordinary man with an obedient heart;
Mary – the Mother of Jesus;
Moses – led God’s people out of bondage & performed miracles never before seen;
Paul – a true believer;
Noah – a good man in a wicked world who remained loyal to God;
Samson – never a gentle giant;
Gideon – a reluctant hero;
Mordecai – had a cousin called Esther;
Joseph in Egypt – clever and wise.
I named by son after the man who was after God’s own heart, David, which in Hebrew means beloved one.
In studying biblical heroes, we learn varied lessons about humility, strength, failures, flaws, fragilities, missteps, love, etc…. Though heroes, they like us were all imperfect people. That is why Jesus, the only perfect person, taught us to look to God the Father. We were wisely instructed to “not put our trust in earthly men.” God will never fail us. His love is mighty, his arms of protection are wide; his guiding light shines bright. He has the power to make our crooked road straight; to turn darkness into light; to lift us to unforeseen height. He is omnipotent. God guides us, hears us, and answers our prayers. God and only God is our salvation. He is our eternal hero – today, tomorrow, forever!
What a mighty God we serve!
Happy Sunday! Blessings!
