Hebrews 11:1 says: "Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen."
Remember this part of the bible was written in Greek. Faith in this language means faithfulness, pledge or proof. Let's dissect this scripture. Substance as it is used here means persuasion or inner conviction.
Let's bring this scripture together. Faith is the reality, assurance, title deed or your claim under legal standing of the things you expect to receive but does not have yet.
Faith is a living organism. It is the legal evidence that what you are believing God for is yours and will materialize if you just believe.
So how do you get this faith? Faith travels to anyone if they will hear the Word of God continually. Romans 10:10 says: "Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God." Notice faith is always an action verb. It travels by hearing and hearing the Word of God.
So if you are believing God to heal you, you have to hear and continue to actively listen to scriptures on healing. If you need God to save your soul, you need to actively hear scriptures taking about how Jesus came to save the lost. When the scripture says faith comes by hearing. It means in Greek that faith comes by hearing (sense of being heard through the inner spiritual ear. )This is the soul that produces dream and emotions. Notice Faith is always moving and never sits still. It is a lifestyle of constantly hearing. Stay tune next time as we show you how to demonstrate Faith.
