The most important to have in life is faith. What is faith? There is two definitions of faith; complete trust or confidence in something or someone, and strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion.
In Hebrews 11; 1-3, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for. 3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what was unseen was not made out of what was visible.”
As I was listening to Dr. Tony Evans podcast, Heroes of Faith series, he goes in depth explaining what faith is. In the words of Dr. Tony Evans,
“Faith is simply acting like it is so, even when it is not so, in order it might be so because God said so.”
Let’s go back to the beginning, Genesis. When God was creating the universe he did not take clay, or a piece of glob whatever you want to call it and create the universe from it. All he did was command it. Now you cannot tell me is not awesome. Speaking it into existence and then whoop there it is. Why rely on luck when there is faith.
Take a look at the weather person. A lot of us rely on that person to tell us if the weather outside will be sunny or horrible. Whenever the weather man says there is a thirty person chance of rain we do not know if we should take an umbrella or not. That is what we do to God. We go bobbing for apples. If you can believe a man who is sometimes up sometimes down, what about God who is always right! Faith is the key to experience God. Anyone can have faith, in Hebrews 11 God uses ordinary people to tell about faith. He used a prostitute, a murderer, a liar, and etc…
Faith conquers all, ten years ago my sister dreamed of having her own salon. She worked hard for it and now she has it. There were times when her faith would go down but no matter what her faith conquered all. She experienced God. Even though she could not she her salon yet (ten years ago) but she knew that she will have own salon someday. Faith is confidence of things you do not see. Faith will not manifest itself until there is movement. Like my sister said, “Pray, plan, and push.”
Faith can reach the unreachable.
“God wants you to trust his integrity so, you can say catch me in this this situation, catch me in this circumstance because I have learn to trust his integrity.”
