Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.Hebrews 11:1
A Faith that Sees
This verse is known as the faith verse. It is the definition of faith, everything we know faith to be, and a reminder of the faith we should have. It is the reality of all things hoped for. Faith gives us a reason to get up in the morning and a reason to keep going everyday. Without faith we would lead an empty, self-absorbed life. It is also the evidence of all the things we cannot see. It is the miracle of a baby born too soon. It is the healing of a cancer too progressed. It is the repair of a relationship after many years. It is so many things.
What is faith to you? What do you hope for? Is it something temporary or eternal? When we hope in things eternal, we are living out our faith. When we hope in things that we see in front of us, we are distracting from our faith. That really isn’t faith at all. Turn toward the Lord today and begin to hope in eternal things and you will see your faith come to life.
A Prayer to Remember
May I have the type of faith that looks to you during hard times and good times. May I stay focused on you everyday. Amen.
