The Essence of Faith

What is faith?

Hebrews 11:1 Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Are we certain of things we do not see? Do we really trust God even though we cannot see him?

God does exist as Abraham proved. He was called by God to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance. He obeyed and went even though he did not know where he was going. it was by faith that he made his home in the Promised Land. Later he was asked by God to sacrifice his only son on an altar. He proved more than willing to do so because of his faith in God. Would we have such faith?

Faith is all about having a close relationship with God. Only in this way can we begin to build up our love and trust for Him.

Are you willing to trust in God? He can use you as he used Abraham.

One thought on “The Essence of Faith

  1. Faith is a daily challenge to trust. I firmly believe the only way to build our faith and know God is to immerse ourselves in the Word He provided. God be with you!
