Faith. A demonstration of God’s Word
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1)
The Scripture above is the best definition of faith you can get. God had to define it for us because He knew we weren’t going to get a better definition in the world. A substance is a real physical matter that you can touch or relate with. If faith is the substance of your hope, it means faith is a real thing; it’s the tangible expression of your hope.
The Bible tells us of Father Abraham, who “being not weak in faith, considered not his body now dead, when he was about a hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God” (Romans 4:19-20). Abraham tangibly expressed his hope by giving praise to god; he didn’t allow his physical condition to discourage him. If there’s no substance or tangible expression to your hope, then there is no faith.
Faith is the evidence – the title deed of things not seen. A title deed is a legal document proving your right to a property; it maybe a piece of land or a house. This document authenticates your claim to the property. The same way, the Word of God is enough proof that you have what God has given to you. It doesn’t matter if others don’t believe you because they can’t see it, you already have the evidence and that’s what matters! Amen!
My faith is strong and operative. I refuse to cower in fear or timidity when faced with challenges or adverse situations, but I rise to the occasion, knowing that I am what God says I am and I have what He says I have and can do what He says I can do, in Jesus Christ Name! Amen!
May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
