Hebrews 11:1 NIV, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”
How can we be confident in what we hope for and sure of what we do not see? We do this by placing our hope and assurance in Jesus Christ. He is our firm foundation. Living by faith in the Son of God is the way God has chosen for His children to live (Galatians 2:20). He expects us to trust Him to take good care of us and supply us with all we need. A life lived by faith can certainly be challenging. When we do not understand the details of what is going on, fear can creep into our hearts. But it’s during these times of uncertainty, that we must cling to God even more. Meditating on His Word will increase our faith and help us to stay strong…
Romans 10:17 KJV, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
God’s Word is alive and active (Hebrews 4:12). It changes our hearts and brings life to what seems dead. There is power in His Word. Living by faith gives us hope, because we know that what we see is not all there is. Instead we can believe God for more. Even when we don’t yet see what it is we are believing for, we can keep walking by faith. We can be confident in the sovereignty of our Lord Jesus Christ.
