‘Faith is … Seeing what is beyond sight … Believing what is beyond reason … Receiving what is beyond comprehension’

This is backed up by what we read in the bible:

Hebrews 11:1 (The Message)

The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living.  It’s our handle on what we can’t see.

Romans 10:17 (NIV)

Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.

Just because we can’t see faith, doesn’t mean we can’t have faith. Faith in God is no different from having faith in anyone else.

For example, I’m sure at some time in your life you’ve been asked to stand and then putting your full trust in the person behind you, fall backwards relying on the person behind you to catch you – Compare this to when you’re struggling and need to rely on God…it’s exactly the same, we need to put our faith and trust in God to support us even though we can’t physically see God beside us.

Remember, keep your faith in God strong and God will never let you down.
