Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
(Hebrews 11:1 (NKJV))
Do you have evidence to support your faith?
Faith is a strange thing. Many people believe in something and they call it faith, yet, at the least little hint of something not going as planned, they abandon everything.
Faith is not faith of it is easily abandoned!
I would actually consider this a wish and not faith.
People wish for something and then become disconcerted when their wish doesn’t come true.
Faith is a conviction! Faith is a choice. Faith requires a commitment above and beyond what makes sense. Faith requires a hope, a very strong hope, that all is not lost.
Do you have faith that when you take a breath, your lungs will be filled with air? We cannot see the air, yet, we rely upon it to survive. Do you have faith that all promises are yes through Christ Jesus? Can you see Jesus? Can you see His promises? It is the same as the air. We cannot see it, yet we know without a doubt that it is there, that it is as real as what we can see. Perhaps it is even more real, for it is not clouded by the fallen nature in which we live.
Faith is an amazing thing. Just a little can grow into something so big that it can provide shelter for those around it just as the mustard seed grows into a large tree that provides shelter.
Can you see faith?
Can you touch faith?
Can you see faith manifested in your life and in the lives of those around you?
Faith is a powerful force. When we have faith, we have an insight into God’s kingdom.
