Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.(not yet revealed to the physical senses- amp.) Heb.11:1
Real faith flows out of the heart not out of the head, It is unseen reality and it is more sure than what we can see. ( Mk 11:23-24 )
23 “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
Real faith is based on what Jesus did and is born out of intimacy with the source of faith “The Lord Jesus Christ” it is not just a tool to get us out of trouble or a way of performance to get God to like us more, It is not 3 steps 10 steps or just another formula it is a relationship of trust with the Master. (Gal.3:11)
Real faith is the ability to see the end result, and rejoice as done now.
Real faith is rest based upon what Jesus has already done not what he will do in the circumstances ( Heb.4:3 )
Real faith is substance; hope is the vessel of the substance, and love is the force of the substance.
Real faith is always connected to grace, patience, mercy, hope, victory, and it needs no explanation.
Real faith has already defeated every enemy we could ever face in this life, it is the faith of Jesus Christ.
Real faith is the victory that has already overcome the world. (1 Jn.5:4)
Real faith is the Life Style of Jesus being witnessed in the earth through His people.
Real Faith Is found in Hebrews 12 which is the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ that has already won every battle and set down in rest.
We look away from abstract old testament hero’s of faith that obtained promises, but never the obtained the promise who is Jesus the source and completion of our faith.
Real faith praises, it breathes joy, has no fear of losing possessions positions or personal rights.
Real faith is not afraid of confrontation with demons or men, it lives in the reality that Jesus overcame all, and that is what made us overcomer’s.
