What is Faith?

Hebrews 11:1  TLB  What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead.

What is a life without faith?

Hopeless.

Faith sustains us. Faith keeps us going, keeps us believing, and keeps us pushing forward. We cling to faith for our healing, for our protection; for our resolution.

We can’t see the future. We can’t know exactly how we are going to get well. We don’t know where the answers are going to come from. We don’t know what the final result is going to be. However, we can have faith.

As believers in Christ, we have the certainty that even though we cannot see the finish line, we know that He is there waiting for us. He knows the questions and has the answers. We aren’t required to know the end result. We are required to have faith that He is preparing the way for us.

Take that step of faith. Give Him your doubts and your fears. Hand Him the illness or your troubled heart. Trust Him to handle the unseen. He cares for you and He loves you. You can depend on Him.
