Hebrews 11:1 – Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Faith is a word that can be easily lost in the day-to-day life of a believer. It’s a reliance and complete trust in God. A confidence in Jesus Christ that He is more than enough and greater than any need we could possibly have.
This faith of ours is constantly being tested and, in-a-sense, constantly under attack. Peter writes in his first letter, “Beloved, do not be surprised at all at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you; but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that at revelation of His glory you may rejoice in exultation.” (1 Peter 4:12-13)
Faith comes from the heart. This faith is given when one becomes a believer in God,
To quote from Romans Chapter 10, Verses 8-10 from the Holy Bible’s New Testament,
“But what does it say? ‘The word is near you, in your mouth and your heart’- that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that God raised Him (Jesus Christ) from the dead, you will be saved;
For with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in Salvation.”
In life it’s quite easy to let the cares of the world get you down, but in those times God wants us to do the exact opposite… trust in Him and rejoice. To learn from Him, Jesus tells us that He will take a portion of our burden and walk side by side with the believer.
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)
