Have Faith In God
Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
So, what exactly is faith? The Greek rendering of the above verse basically says that “faith is the reality of things hoped for, the proof of things not seen.”
Faith is like having a ticket to a concert. You’re not at the concert…yet. You haven’t heard the band play…yet. You haven’t seen the artist walk out on the stage…yet. Even though you haven’t seen or heard anything yet, there is no one that can convince you that you eventually won’t, because you have your ticket.
As a matter of fact, if someone tries to tell you that you’re not going to that concert, the first thing you will do is show them your ticket. Having that ticket changes everything. Your expectations change all because you have that ticket. You can already “see” yourself at that concert. You can almost hear the band playing and see the artist coming onto the stage.
You are experiencing a type of “reality” all because you have your ticket. That, my friend, is a great example of faith. You may not actually have what you prayed for…yet, but because you have faith, no one can convince you that you won’t eventually.
Faith is a confident attitude and resolve that things in your life will work out just as God has promised. It is the tangible reality of the soul that gives us hope beyond what we can see physically. Faith always allows us to see it before we actually see it. Can you see it? Have faith in God!
