Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for. It is all the evidence required to prove what is still unseen. Hebrews 11:1
I love how that’s written; Faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for.
You may have the plans to build a house, but until what’s on the paper is built, you’ll never be able to live in it. If there’s no foundation, the house won’t be inhabitable. I can wish for a home, but without faith in the builder to build it, well, you see where I’m going with this!
Faith in God brings my hope into my now. God is my foundation, He holds the plans and knows how to bring my desires in line with His. He delights in the plans He has for me and I trust Him.
And without faith living within us it would be impossible to please God. For we come to God in faith knowing that he is real and that he rewards the faith of those who give all their passion and strength into seeking him. Hebrews 11:6 TPT
I don’t know about you, but my soul desire is to please God. If I can only do that by focusing on Him, building my faith muscles every day by disciplining my tongue to only speak what He says and do what He does and obeying His leading, I’m all in!
What a great foundation to have-Faith in God! Trusting Him regardless of how things work out or don’t, it’s simply all about Him. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to do life with Him. My reward, a life of peace. How you ask? Because I’ve learned that if I place my trust in Him, everything else will work out for His Glory.
Father, thank you for my measure of faith and showing me how to grow it into mountain moving, devil defeating, chain destroying miracles. How can I think small when You’re so big. I will not limit You or Your ability to work in and through me. It’s in Jesus’ name and for Your glory, Amen.
