Bible Verse of the Day – Faith is the Substance of Things Hoped For. The Evidence of Things Not Seen (Hebrews 11:1)

16 Feb

Faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen Hebrews 11:1“Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” – The Old Testament, Hebrews 11:1 (KJV)

I was watching an amazing movie the other day (for the first time) that you’ve probably heard of, called “The Shawshank Redemption”. It is one of those movies that I have heard a lot about, but never paid attention. A friend showed it to me, and it was one of the most beautiful movies I’ve ever seen.

As the credits rolled and tears filled my eyes at the final triumphant scene, this verse came to mind. In my estimation, the main character of the film, had faith. While Morgan Freeman’s character had hope. There is a huge difference between the two. Faith is the most powerful thing, and gives you the ability to accomplish the impossible, even when the impossible is seemingly, just that, an impossibility.
