Faith, how do we understand what faith truly is? It’s not as easy as you may think, however, it’s essential to your belief in our heavenly Father. But, having faith in something you cannot see is a difficult thing to do, but the Word promises that with this faith we are protected “Love the Lord all His faithful people. The Lord protects the faithful.” Psalm 31:23
Faith is truly by hearing and what is hoped for, but, why should we believe in something hoped for if we cannot see it? Because when you hear and believe you’ll see Him in everything around you! “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing comes through the Word of God.” Romans 10:11
Growing in faith doesn’t simply happen overnight, and it’s not just a though; it’s something so beautiful that starts within.When you believe, you will see your faith. Jesus said if we were to have the faith of the mustard seed we can do anything! Having faith is true to what you believe, and we are told by having faith we will be saved. “Confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe with your heart that God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
Having faith in things you cannot see may be difficult but will be something so precious among you, you’ll never want to let it go. So have that faith and believe and you will truly see God in a whole new way.
