Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see… By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. - Hebrews 11:1-3
Faith is being sure of what we know about God and it is a gift of God. According to Romans 12:6 God gives a measure of faith to every person. God is telling us that he has a world available to us that cannot be seen by those who do not have faith – then he gives us the faith to enter that world.
As humans we are programmed to see and understand only what we can perceive through the experiences of our senses; sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. If we can’t “sense” it we don’t believe it exists. Then God blows all of that away when he drops a revelation into our hearts and suddenly we see things that others cannot see.
The very nature of faith is to see with our spirit what cannot be seen with human eyes. Those who see only with their natural eyes limit what the Spirit of God can do with them and through them. Those who, through faith, see what the Spirit sees, will by faith produce a manifestation in the physical realm.
Believing in what is not seen by the natural eye produces a hope that is certain. Faith comes when we are sure of what we know about God - it is God's gift to those of us who believe.
Prayer: Father God, thank you for the measure of faith you have given me. Grant me the grace to trust you fully so that your kingdom life may be shown through my life. In Jesus name, amen.
