Faith and Hope

January 30, 2019

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1)

Nothing in life is certain. Plans are made but there are no guarantees. There are so many what if’s but that shouldn’t be a hindrance for doing the things that can produce what you’re hoping for. It takes commitment and perseverance but it also takes a belief that it can be done. Belief is thinking that you can do it (an act of the mind) but it also takes faith, which is trust and confidence that you can accomplish what you set your heart to do. Faith goes beyond what you think; it is having the courage to entreat the soul to go beyond what you can see.

The bible is filled with individuals who exhibited strong representations of faith (Hebrews 11). Their faith in God was unwavering. It is not some mystical force that can be contrived. It is a conviction, a strong dependence, and a complete reliance and confidence in God’s Word and His promises.

Your efforts are limiting but God is limitless and so goes for the one whose faith and confidence is in God. “All things are possible to those who believe”.
