What is faith? How do you define it? What does it look like when you’re doing it? What does is feel like when we don’t have it?
Faith, mentioned 237 times in my New Living Translation bible is referenced in many different situations. God has a lot to say about faith and we can learn what it is and how to apply it in our lives by reading God’s word.
Faith as the bible defines it
Hebrews 11:1 Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.
Demonstrating Faith pleases The Father
Hebrews 11:6 And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.
How to demonstrate faith
Hebrews 12:1-2 Let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily hinders our progress. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, on whom our faith depends from start to finish.
Where is your faith today? What is your faith dependent on? How can your faith be strengthened? My prayer for you is a strengthened faith and testimony to God’s grace and goodness in your life……
