To start off my daily (hopefully) Tumblr post, I thought it would be appropriate to explain my Tumblr URL.
Heb11-1 refers to Hebrew Chapter 11 Verse 1. and it says:
“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”
Hebrew 11:1 (NIV)
Ok, let’s break it down shall we?
What is faith? This question is very controversial. I will try to answer it from my interpret from the Bible. (I don’t claim to know everything, after all I/We are all still Work-In-Progress :).
Faith, is being sure of what we hope for and Certain of what we do not see. To put it plainly, Faith is completely trust in something or someone (God) even thought we can not see.
To be honest, i had my fair shares of doubts in God. Actually, I doubted God MANY times. When I asked God for something and I don’t get it, I loose my faith in God.
Faith Involves Trusting Our Maker
There are many great men mention in the Bible that had great faith in God.
When God told Noah to build an arc he did not question Him. Noah simply trust and had faith in God. Sure, Noah was mocked by many because at that time no one has ever seen rain before let a lone a great flood!
“By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and wet, even though he did not know where he was going.” Hebrew 11: 8
Faith Is an Action Word
Faith=Action. Faith and Action are inseparable. You can not have faith in God but not show it in your action!
”Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead”James 2:17
Faith and action is something I struggled with.
It looks something like this:
“God! I love you and I trust you! BUT….”
Yes, the “but”. It has happened multiple times through out my life. There were times where I told God that I will not worry about my life, but there were also times I asked God what my life will be.
I know I’m not the only one that had doubts in God :)
Friends, I just really want to encourage you to have faith in God. Just have faith as small as a mustard seed you will see great things from God.
“He replied, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20
