An Impossible Faith

Jul 6, 2023

What is faith? Faith is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot see. It was by their faith that people of ancient times won God’s approval. By faith, by believing God, we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command. That what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen. Hebrews 11:1-3 Adapted

When people look at your life, do they see an impossible faith?

If there is the least dubiety, you must immediately spend more time communing with God so that you come to more fully understand the full arsenal at His disposal. The keys to such fellowship are prayer and study of the Word of God.

Start with 2 Kings 6:8-17.

Then Elisha prayed, “Lord, please open his eyes and let him see.” So the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he saw that the mountain was covered with horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.” 2 Kings 6:17

Get the picture? Thank God.

It is said that seeing is believing, but that is not entirely true. We see many things that, if we are sensible persons, we do not believe since our eyes are apt to be deceived. If we turn the proverb around and say, “Believing is seeing.” we will often find it is true. The one who has believed has “the proof of what is not seen.”

The believer in Christ sees much more than any other. Faith is like new eyes. Eyes with a far wider range of vision than natural eyes ever have. Eyes that see the truths of God, which natural eyes often do not. Eyes that do not grow dim but that, as age increases, grow yet more bright and see farther. Blessed is the one who has the eyesight of faith.

God’s done bigger things.
