Things Not Seen

Think nothing of the hundreds of miles between you and the hard surface of the earth.
Relying on resistance of the laws of gravity by a series of electric instruments that propel you at hundreds of miles to your desired destination.

But we have a knowing, an assurance, that all will work out okay.

Do we studies airplanes and aviator science before purchasing a plane ticket?

 The Apostle Paul taught that “faith is the substance [assurance] of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” 1

You step on the plane.
You hope you won't crash.
But that's really out of your control.

 Each day you act upon things you hope for, even before you see the end result. This is similar to faith. We show our hope for something that we cannot yet see.

Many of us apply the principle of faith, more often than we realize.
It is a matter of the direction we choose to apply it in.

Faith in God is more than a theoretical belief in Him. 

To have faith in God is to trust Him, to have confidence in Him, and to be willing to act on your belief in Him. It is a principle of action and power.

It only takes one step.
What is your desired destination?

Questions to consider:
What does it mean to have faith?
How can faith give you strength?
Who do you know that would benefit from a message on faith?
