Have you ever read or heard a scripture in the Bible expounded on – and been surprised thinking you understood something but you really didn’t?
Today I viewed a video by famed Quantum Success coach Christy Whitman; and while listening a Scripture came to mind – I’m sure that most of you know it, Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
My feeling, perspective, and view of this particular versus of scripture is this:
Faith is actual substance and evidence in the spiritual realm…and yes, it is tangible!! Faith has actual existence even though it is not materially perceived.
Faith is substance. It isn’t a blind acceptance of something. It isn’t a mental exercise. It’s not based on what we can prove scientifically. It is actual spiritual substance!!
Faith is never directed by human will but by the will of God. To put it bluntly FAITH IS THE WORD OF GOD!! It always comes by God “speaking” to us; this speaking (so to speak lol), manifests in our world (Faith cometh by hearing / the Word became flesh) – so that we can touch it and experience [IT]!
Here is what Christy Whitman had to say on the ‘subject’ of Faith:
Audio: Faith In Manifesting
YouTube Video: Faith
sub·stance [suhb’- stuhns] n. that of which a thing consists; the ACTUAL matter of a thing “The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see.”
So, how do you define Faith? (NOTE: There really is no right or wrong answer I would love to hear your response)
