Now, What Is Faith?
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1
A nobleman’s son became ill, so he sought Jesus to heal him. When he found Jesus, he asked Him to come to his home. But instead of physically going to the boy’s bedside, Jesus healed him by His word. John 4:50b says, “And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.”
Not a wonder, not a sign, not a vision, not angels playing tic-tac-toe on his ribs, or cold chills going up and down his spine…the man believedJesus’ Word and went on his way.
Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible, and receives the impossible.
Doubt sees the obstacles; faith sees the way. Doubt sees the darkest night; faith sees the day. Doubt dreads to take a step; faith soars on high. Doubt questions who believes; faith answers, “I”!
Life follows faith like night follows day. There is no life without faith.
