Faith is the evidence
of things unseen
substance of things
The Bible says the just shall live by faith. This journey called life requires it. In The Message, Hebrews 11:1 says, the fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It's our handle on what we can't see. The act of faith is what distinguished our ancestors, set them above the crowd.
Having faith is similar to the process of pregnancy and childbirth. The Word of God is like a seed. If we are impregnated by the Word, new life will come forth.
However, we must first nurture that seed, cultivate it, and tend to it with prayer. Only then will there be growth and new life, a birth. Wherever the presence of the Holy Spirit is, there is hope... there is a future. I believe God will use every circumstance in your life to fulfill his eternal purpose for your life.
When we can't see it.
When we stand alone.
Faith is the evidence of things unseen and the substance of things hoped for.
