KEY SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 11:1. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Our key scripture is the best definition for faith. It is also a very powerful revelation that the Holy Spirit gave us. Faith is a very important subject to study and to live by. The Bible said by it the elders obtained a good report.(Hebrews 11:2) One cannot be ignored and missed up in the crowd when one walks by faith. Without faith one cannot please God. (Hebrews 11:6)
Our key scripture teaches that faith is a present moment assurance or possession of something hoped for. It is a title deed of something that is not physically at hand. A celebration of an anticipated answer. Faith in God is a confidence assurance of a promise that God has given. Faith focuses on the promise of God,and not the challenges around. Faith in God is spiritual and supernatural, so it is always superior to every natural opposition.
Hope is an anticipation or an expectation and faith takes a hold of that which hope has obtained.
Faith and hope are partners. Hope always go ahead and faith comes along to take a hold of that which hope has had. Without hope standing up faith is paralyzed.
Although faith always dares the impossible, it rests on the mightiness and faithfulness of God. It is always the reliability of God that makes his words gives birth to faith. Romans 10:17″So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God”. If your faith is getting weak, what you need mainly is to give yourself a high dose of the word of God.
Faith’s achievements in a man are as God himself, for faith is God acting through a man….. The Lord said all things are possible to him who believes. (Mark 9:23)
The scripture narrates a few of the works of faith in God in Hebrews 11:33-34 “Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouth 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 fight the armies of the aliens”
These feats are continually being wrought by all those who take the path of walking in faith. Faith in God and faith to dare the impossible is normally not popular yet those who stand for God are always celebrated. Be among those who would be celebrated for their faith in God.
My faith in God is forever alive.By it all things are possible to me. Life is exciting and beautiful because of faith in God. Faith in God always pleases him.
Matthew 14:29. “And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.”
