#4599 – Confident Faith

Good morning people who place your confidence in God alone

Hebrews 11:1 NIV Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

What is faith?

Faith is confidence in what we hope for. Let’s unpack this.

In this verse, confidence means: ‘a setting under (support), concretely, standing under’.

Faith is a foundation for our lives, not a feeling that we experience.

The word hope here means: ‘to expect’.

Faith is my foundation of what I expect to happen.

How do we have this kind of faith?

By having it in God – not in results or outcomes, or even in answers to prayers.

Do you trust God?

The answer to this is the measure of our faith.
