Scripture – Observation – Application – Prayer
Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. (Hebrews 11:1 NLT)
Faith gives us both confidence and assurance for things that we have no real evidence for.
Faith changes what we know to be reality. When God gives us hope, through faith we see it as done although it has not happened yet. When God tells us something exists that we cannot see, faith sees it as though it was already visible. Our reality comes from looking through the lens of faith in God.
Father, let my reality be based on what you say rather than what I can prove.
