Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. – (Hebrews 11:1, NIV)
Faith is what makes real the things we hope for. It is proof of what we cannot see. – (Hebrew 11:1, ERV)
Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for. It is all the evidence required to prove what is still unseen. – (Hebrews 11:1, TPT)
Our confidence must be in Christ, for it is through Him that we have hope and see that which is unseen become reality. Hope is desperately needed for so many, as the next few weeks and months hold much uncertainty. We must find faith and seek the Lord, for He is the hope in which we can trust. May we trust in Him, who is our hope, and have faith in that which is yet unseen.
May we seek You, Lord,
In confident trust;
For all that’s unseen,
That You have for us.
Lead us to listen,
To seek and to look;
For our hope is found,
In You and Your book.
Please grant us Your eyes,
To see beyond now;
For there is much more,
Past our fear and doubt.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that faith brings hope into reality. Thank You that You are doing so much more than we can see or imagine. Forgive us for our fear and doubt. Teach us to see Your hope, even in the seemingly impossible situations. Show us how to love those around us in such a way, that they too may discover the faith in You that makes hope visible. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we look to You to show us how to place our hope in You, no matter what we see. Amen.
