What is it?
We read in God’s word that we live by faith, not by sight. We read here that faith is, “perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses.” We ‘believe’ though we do not yet see the tangible evidence. In some situations, faith may come more easily. Other times it may not. Sometimes the circumstances overwhelm us – like it did when Peter walked on water. There have been times in my life where I have had a certainty within – a ‘knowing’, and this has brought a sense of peace. Then other times it seems beyond my scope of faith.
I believe our faith is stretched, and as a result, grows toward maturity. It’s hard at times, but we need to trust in our Lord to bring us through whatever situation.
“…Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]…” – Hebrews 11: 1 (AMP)
Faith is the assurance and belief
In things we hope for, yet do not see.
