Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen.
Wow. This verse touched my heart the firsst time I read it, and it awes me still. Everyday in the world, Christians and non-Christians alike all speak of hope. Hope is like an energy to people, we need it to live and life worth living. To think that faith is the basis of hope is so amazing. Believing in God and trusting Him is all the hope I need or could ever ask for. The second part of the verse about faith being the evidence of things not seen brings one word to mind. Miracles. When that loved one in critical condition in a coma suddenly wakes up and begins to heal... that's the power of faith. There's a song by Kutless called "What faith can do." The title of that song alone carries a huge message. All of those things people can only think of wishing for all have a chance to come true when instead of wishing; we pray and have faith in a God who is greater than any dream the human mind can imagine.
Prayer of the day:
Precious God, thank you for your awesome power and grace that excepts us and can change even the hardest of hearts. You are the hope the world is searching for, open our eyes Lord, that we may lose the blinders and be gloriously redeemed. Today, give peace to those who come hunting God, and we dedicate our day to you, that you alone are rewarded with the praise, and that our works would please you. You are the ultimate healer and miracle worker, praise your holy name! I love you Lord, thank you for saving me through you son. In His precious name I pray...
