Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
What is faith? How do we know if we have faith and how do we know what is great faith? If faith is the assurance or certainty of things we do not see, does faith need proof?
Through faith we believe that the universe was formed by the Word of the Lord, everything that we see around us was created from that which is not visible to us. How do we know when we weren’t even there when this happened? Just as we know when we aren’t even there in the future when the promises of the Lord are going to come to pass in our lives-through faith!
In 2015 there was a viral debate about a dress which some saw as black and blue while others saw as white and gold. The fact was that nothing about the dress changed, just the way people saw it. Facts are facts, however, faith doesn’t look at facts but the truth of the Lord’s Word. How are you looking at life today? We’re praying that your vision be sharpened though eyes of faith-faith that can move the biggest mountains.
You might say that you’ve been through so much strife that it has squeezed every bit of faith out of you. But while the promise of the Lord came to Abraham and Sarah, she received strength to conceive the promise of the Lord from the promise-maker, when she found it difficult to believe-for she looked at the promise-keeper and not her own self. The world will ‘see’ your faith when you start behaving like you’ve already inherited all that your Lord has promised you. This 2020, may the Spirit of the Lord help you fix your eyes on that which is unseen, that you would walk by faith and not by sight being fully confident that your Promise-Maker is your Promise-Keeper!
