NOW FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPE FOR, THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN. (Hebrews 11:1)
By First Lady Davis
HAVE FAITH IN GOD
Believing in something you cannot see can be challenging. But God has dealt to every man the measure of faith. (Romans 12:3) Without Faith, it is impossible to please him: for he that come to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (Hebrews:11:6)
The heroes of faith left it on record; Abraham staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded, that what he had promised, he was able to perform. (Roman 4:20-21) Trusting in the Lord with all of your heart is beneficial for those who walk in faith and not by sight. "Great is your reward!"
"But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation." (I Thessalonians 5:8)
Faith work by love
Sometimes you may have a hard time believing in the invisible God. "For God so love the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believe in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) The love of God is shed abroad in hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given to us. (Romans 5:5) Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. (Romans 5:1-2)
Even so faith, if it has not works, is dead, being alone. Yes a man may say, I have faith, and I have works, show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. And the scripture was fulfilled which said, "Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness and was called the Friend of God."
(James 2: 17-18, 2:23)
"Are you a Friend of God. Try him today!"
