Stepping Out In Faith

Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see. Hebrews 11:1

I have discovered the secret of a successful Christian life. Are you ready for it? It is living and walking by faith every day. It is consistency. It is staying with it.

Hebrews 11:1 defines faith as "the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Or, as the New Living Translation puts it, "Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see."Faith enables us to treat the future as present and the invisible as seen. Faith sees what could be. Faith does things. Faith takes action. Faith takes risks. Faith leaves its comfort zones to do things for the Lord. And faith that doesn’t produce works is a faith that doesn’t work.

When we step out in faith, God will work. But if we don’t step out in faith, then really not much is going to happen. God works through people who walk by faith. Hebrews 10:38 says, “The just shall live by faith." Those who step out in faith do move mountains. Feelings come and go. We cannot attach our Christian experience to how we are feeling emotionally in the moment. We must learn how to walk by faith. We must believe the word of God.

Prayer: Lord, increase my faith.

Scriptural Reading: Hebrews 11:1-3
By Faith We Understand

1     Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

2     For by it the elders obtained a  good testimony.

3      By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
NKJV
