When we exercise the gift of faith; the faith from God and believe in Him and trust Him, that pleases Him. Hebrews 11:6 says “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”
Faith is based on facts. Genuine faith is more than a feeling. It is not just closing your eyes and believing something. Faith is real. Faith is based upon factual evidence found in the Word of God. Hebrews 11:1 says “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
So, faith …
- Is not a feeling
- It is not just feeling like this is something we are supposed to believe.
- It is not impressions
- It is not based on probabilities
Faith is a wise, spiritual, decision. It is our wise, spiritual, response based upon evidence; based upon facts found in the Word of God.
