Faith and Hope

Faith is the complete certainty of receiving what you are waiting [hoping] for; the assurance of the reality of the things we do not see.

When we sit in a chair we demonstrate faith. Few are the times we check the chair to see if it will really hold us up, instead, we sit in the chair confident that we will not fall. The same happens when we make a purchase that will not be delivered for 3 days. The receipt is the evidence that we have what we paid for.

Our faith is the security and guarantee for the promises God has given us. When we place our faith in God and His words we can be certain He will deliver what we are hoping for.

Hebrews 11:1
