  1. What does faith show?
  2. What does faith do?
  3. What are we urged to believe about God?


Hebrews 11 is often referred to as the “faith hall of fame.” It lists stories of ordinary people who have come before us who demonstrated extraordinary faith. They were fully awakened to the moment God ordained for them to live in, and their lives made an incredible impact. They didn’t wait for God to come through and then step out. They stepped out and God came through. 

For these heroes of the faith and for us today, being awakened is a call to live by faith. What exactly is faith? Some Bible translations use the words assurance and conviction to describe it. This points to something more than blind leaps or hopeful thinking. It indicates a settled confidence – a deeper knowing of who God is and a belief that every promise He has made in His Word can be trusted throughout all generations.

God wants to awaken you to the abundant life you were meant to live. Stepping out in faith is the process of believing He is who He says He is and then letting His power work through you. Without faith, it’s impossible to please God. Let Him awaken you to His power, then watch Him do what only He can do.


  • Do you tend to want to see God come through before you step out? How does today’s reading challenge you in this?
  • How well would you say you know God? Do you regularly take time to remind yourself of who He is and what He has promised in His Word? What steps could you take to know Him more deeply?
  • In what areas of your life are you struggling to have the kind of faith described in today’s reading? Who can you invite into this area to walk alongside you and encourage you toward greater faith in God?

As you process these questions, use page 59 of your Awaken Guidebook to jot down any key reflections or next steps. Be sure to bring your guidebook to your group! Page 60 is a great place to write down things that you want to process together.
