Hebrews 11:32-34

"And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:
Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,
Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens."
Hebrews 11:32-34

Faith is an amazing thing.  It can do miraculous things, including holding off invading aliens. :)  Very cool.  Sincerely though, I think it is interesting that it says that time would fail me to tell all of these things... because it would.  There is so much evidence of faith, and of God's hand in our lives, and in the lives of all people, that it is just overwhelming to think of telling it all.  Isn't it just pure insanity to seek for a sign or proof of God's presence when signs and evidences are absolutely everywhere around us?  We want more faith-building stories when we haven't really read the ones that we have, and we want more miracles when our lives are filled with them.  Instead of waiting for more, let's go out and make them happen.  Let's do some of the things that it says here... let's build some righteousness.  Let's obtain promises. Let's be made strong out of our weaknesses.  If we need some more evidence, let's make some happen.  And, you know, it never hurts to be ready for those alien armies. :)
