Faith Defined

How do you define faith?  An unknown author from the Holocaust wrote “I believe in the sun even when it is not shining, I believe in love even when I cannot feel it, and I believe in God even when he is silent.” Hebrews 11:1 says “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”  We cannot see God, but we can have faith that He sees us and He loves us. What is the measure of our faith? Matthew 17-20 tells us “And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”  Let’s all try to increase our faith and trust in Him daily.  God bless you!
