Live Confidently By Faith

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.

    Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things nothing seen. Love this scripture it speaks so much volume. We as people have faith everyday and don’t even know it. I know the saying on this Earth is opposite of what the heavenly father said. We say on Earth “seeing is believing.” But really is that so? When you put the key into the ignition and pull away from your home and driving down the street. You don’t know if today will be your day to be apart of a fatal car accident. Now you hope, expect for that particular day that you are safe but the evidence of that which you hope for is not seen yet.
    Before going to sleep you tell loved ones goodnight see you in the morning but you don’t know that to be true. Your hope is that you will see them and they will see you. However your alarm clock don’t wake you. Only the father who presides in heaven wakes you. If he don’t speak to your spirit, your body and tell it to wake, you won’t. The evidence of what you said/hoped for is not seen yet until the morning. So when as people as much as we would love to say, think and feel that seeing is believing. We actually show more faith in things that we don’t realize than that we do. But why does the heavenly father command us to walk by faith and not by sight? In my humble opinion the very things that we see will and can let us down. It does not know the essential things that we need to progress in this life. Also, most of the things that man put there unwavering faith in was created by for man to serve man the way that man see fit. So in the end it’s destruction. Stay blessed
