Faith is…

20120926-154958.jpg

Faith is humility.

Faith is submitting our intellect to the unknown and allowing the unseen to change us.

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. (Romans 12:2)

Faith is courage.

Faith is trusting God’s promises over the word curses and condemnations of men.

It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. (Psalm 118:8)

Faith is joyful.

Faith gives joy to those who by the world’s standards have nothing to rejoice for.

Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:3)

Faith is enduring.

Faith has outlived every man to ever walk the earth.

These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. (Hebrews 11:13)

Faith is healing.

Faith restores the broken and heals the sick.

And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.” (Luke 17:19)

Faith is trust.

Faith is trusting the One who has always been faithful to simply continue being who He is and will always be.

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6)

Faith is seeing.

Faith allows us to see the invisible and find God in everyday life.

By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. (Hebrews 11:3)

Faith gives us eyes to see and ears to hear.

Let faith arise!

    This has a beauty which I appreciate. I would offer one thing – Soren Kierkegaard who has taught me a lot, teaches that with faith we can never “know”, for knowledge uses a different process. Faith takes us to places, keeps us where we need to be, brings peace, delights us, corrects us and more, and we move that way in the Spirit because we accept God is there in love, whether we know what exactly we are doing (or why it should be done that way) because it reinforces Good News in us or reveals it to others. I have found this challenging, but accurate.
