Faith in God
Faith means – having complete trust or confidence in someone or something; a strong belief in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual conviction rather than proof. The Bible teaches that faith is having confidence in the things we hope for. Even though we cannot see the things hope for with our physical eyes, we prove our trust by believing that God is working our hope into physical existence.
Hope is not just believing. The Bible tells us that faith is a substance. It is “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). Faith is the bridge that links us to the spiritual realm and makes God a touchable reality in a person’s mind. When we believe we create our own individual environments – the worlds in which independently live. We are confident that the unseen world is real. Thus, we believe that the things we create in the spiritual realm will manifest as reality.
Our faith in God guarantees that God’s promises and Biblical revelations are true. We cannot detect these revelations and promises with our physical senses. However, by faith, we have the certitude that our expectations will come to pass. Faith is the tangible quintessence that the things we hope for become so concrete that even belief itself becomes a definitive reality of those things that are not yet visible. Your faith becomes so tangible that you actually believe you possess those things in the spiritual realm.
