In the past, my understanding of faith has been somewhat skewed. To me, it was just believing that a person will push through because I know the circumstances, and I know what the person is capable of doing; or that I will get a favorable outcome because… I know the circumstances, and I know what I am capable of.
I have lived with that notion of faith in the past 32 years. From a certain viewpoint, I’m quite correct in thinking that way. However, it’s now how the Bible defines faith, and it’s only within the past few months that I’m starting to learn how it is. The run-to verse dealing with faith is Hebrews 11:1 (NKJV) —
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
I’m not here to dispute Paul, but as a display of the Bible as the Living Word of God, it’s a different set of verses that caught my attention.
