Faith Is Substance!

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)

  1. I totally agree with you. Faith is real substance. The thing that I think we often overlook is “what is faith the substance OF”? As you pointed out, faith is the substance of things HOPED for. The problem that many of us have is that we have lost our hope, which is defined as “great expectations.” We have been trained to “not get our hopes up.” This is what I wrote on the subject in my book.

    “Faith is the substance of things hoped for. Substance is the material of which anything is made. Therefore the things we hope for are made of our faith. But what if we do not hope for anything? If we do not have hope, there is nothing for faith to be the substance of. It is our hope that activates our faith. We must have things in our lives that we desire to be fulfilled with great expectations. Perhaps it is a better relationship with God, a better marriage, our children saved or peace of mind. Whatever it is, we must desire fulfillment with great expectation. We cannot have the hope of the world where we say “I hope everything works out alright”, but then we proceed to say all the reasons why it won’t. When we say “I hope everything works out” we are expecting it to work out! We are looking every day for improvements in our situations, no matter how small those improvements are. We do not entertain doubt and unbelief about what we are hoping for. We have hope and therefore we have great expectations. We expect it to come to pass!”

    Great post Dwayne!
