Now Faith is the substance of things HOPED for – the evidence of things NOT SEEN (Heb 11:1); How do we get it? Faith comes by HEARING and hearing by the Word of God (Rom 10:17); So, He who has ears let him HEAR (Matt 13:9) – So, what are you LISTENING to? How can you have faith to believe in what you hope for if all you’re hearing are seeds of doubt and negativity? Hear the Word of God that you may have HOPE! For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly WAIT for it with perseverance – (Rom 8:24-25); But those who WAIT on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint (Isa 40:31); But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, PRAYING in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life (Jude 1:20-21); But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive (Gen 50:20); And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to HIS PURPOSE (Rom 8:28).
No matter what is going on in your life, as much as it seems that it will defeat you, Faith is not about what you SEE; Don’t lose HOPE as you WAIT on the Lord, PRAYING for the strength that He gives you to persevere and knowing that even that which comes against you, HE will use for HIS PURPOSE to bless you!
Nothing can hurt you more than God can heal you; Nobody can hate you more than God loves you and regardless of how bad things get, they can’t outweigh how good God is!
