Faith is the assurance, the proof and the conviction. (Hebrews 11, 12)
The assurance of things hoped for; the proof of things not seen; and the conviction of their reality.
Faith gives us understanding that the world was created by the Word of God and not by visible things; faith brings righteousness and causes obedience to act for the glory of God; perfect faith pleases God and moves Him to act on behalf of those who walk in it; faith is the tool necessary to approach God for one to believe that He exists.
Faith causes one to believe the unseen and faith brings salvation to those who embrace it; faith leads us to obedience to God’s commands and fixes our eyes on the hope, with expectation of our redemption; faith sets the hearts on the spiritual world and gives us the glimpse of the eternal world, where our home is; faith causes us to yearn for our heavenly home and puts us in remembrance that we are strangers here on earth.
Genuine faith goes through the tests believing to have received the promises from Him who is faithful to do what He says He would do and faith reasons God’s ability and faithfulness and believes in His promises.
