Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. – Hebrews 11:1
Faith can be a confusing term. It can be hard to get a grip on what the Bible means when it is talking about faith. This Bible verse gives us a really good picture of what faith is.
God’s word promises us things. For example we see in the Bible that those who call on the name of Jesus will be saved. So in this case, faith is believing that we are saved even though its not something we can see. Its the confidence we have that God’s word is true and what God promises in it is ours.
Be encouraged! What God says in His word will come to pass in our lives!
