You gotta have faith… That can easily be said by most people now a days for a number of reasons, but what does that really mean? Faith, according to the book of Hebrews, is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see (Heb 11:1). Meaning that we continue to keep the faith in our hope, Jesus Christ. That means that although we can’t see the future we understand that He is in control of our paths.
The apostle Paul wrote much of faith, about righteousness through faith and about faith and the works that come as a result of persevering in it. Jesus himself said, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed you can certainly move mountains. Of course he was talking about the mountainous problems in our lives and trials. He rebuked His apostles for having too little faith when they were in the storm and when it came time to feed the multitudes with just a couple of loafs and a few fish. The patriarch Abraham was credited as righteous for his faith in the Lord.
What im getting at here is that the bible, the God inspired word, gives us plenty of examples of circumstances where faith was at the forefront of the miraculous. And only because they believed in the all mighty God was all these things possible. Not because of the strength or knowledge of the people mentioned or of our own, but because of the power and faithfulness of the one in which we put our faith. Thank you Lord for your faithfulness.
Grace and Peace!
