What is faith?


What is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see.

So how does this play out in our lives each day? Isn’t seeing, believing?

God’s word says in Hebrews 11:6 that it is impossible to please HIM without faith and that anyone who wants to come to him must believe not only that there is a God, but that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.

So how do we get faith? How do we first believe before we can see? …, Ask for it!

Mark chapter 9:23-24 Jesus asks, “What do you mean, if I can?” “Anything is possible if a person believes.” The father of the sick child then says “I do believe, but help me with my unbelief!”

Do you ever feel like that? .., wanting to believe but struggling with unbelief? When we do our part, HE does his part; so what’s our part? Believe, have faith, trust, demonstrate patience and endurance and behave in good character and integrity until HE moves. When you move, he moves and sometimes we’re required to do nothing and let HIM move. Either way, seek The Father – on whom our strength depends and he will encourage you and fill your heart and mind with what you need to get through your situation. He’s waiting for you, don’t wait…
