Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1
What an amazing verse...
So simple, yet so powerful.
The Hebrew word for faith is “Batah” which means “trust in, trust or rely upon” or “feel safe, trust, be full of confidence”.
This verse tells us that by having faith, we should put our entire trust and full confidence in that which our faith is in. Whether it's during hard times or blessing, we all, including myself, need to put our entire confidence and trust in The Lord. Only the Lord can change peoples hearts, only the Lord can save you, only the Lord can bring healing to this nation and world. As 1 Timothy 6:12 says, "Fight the good fight of faith."
My prayer for each of you that reads this is that you will be strengthen in the Word, that the Lord would equip you with wisdom and knowledge in Him, and that each of us would fight the good fight. It is written in James 2:26, As the body without the Spirit is dead, so faith without works is also dead. May the faith and confidence that we have in our Lord, Jesus Christ, shine out through our daily lives, and reach those that are trapped in the darkness.
