Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.Hebrews 11:1
What is faith? People of faith are often criticized for their blind faith, but is our faith blind? No, for followers of Christ Faith is represented by a confident outlook in the outcome of our lives.
My study Bible writes that “the author indicates that biblical faith is not a vague hope grounded in imaginary, wishful thinking. Instead, faith is a settled confidence that something in the future—something that is not yet seen but has been promised by God—will actually come to pass because God will bring it about.”
Our faith is built on this foundation, so “biblical faith is not blind trust in the face of contrary evidence, not an unknowable “leap in the dark”; rather, biblical faith is a confident trust in the eternal God who is all-powerful, infinitely wise, eternally trustworthy—the God who has revealed himself in his word and in the person of Jesus Christ, whose promises have proven true from generation to generation, and who will “never leave nor forsake” his own.”
Faith doesn’t always know what is going to happen next in life, but true faith is confident in a faithful good God.
