Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
Faith always has been the mark of God's servants, from the beginning of the world. Where the principle is planted by the regenerating Spirit of God, it will cause the truth to be received, concerning justification by the sufferings and merits of Christ. And the same things that are the object of our hope are the object of our faith. It is a firm persuasion and expectation, that God will perform all he has promised to us in Christ. This persuasion gives the soul to enjoy those things now; it gives them a subsistence or reality in the soul, by the first-fruits and foretastes of them. Faith proves to the mind, the reality of things that cannot be seen by the bodily eye. It is a full approval of all God has revealed, as holy, just, and good. This view of faith is explained by many examples of persons in former times, who obtained a good report, or an honorable character in the word of God. Faith was the principle of their holy obedience, remarkable services, and patient sufferings. The Bible gives the truest and exact account of the origin of all things, and we are to believe it, and not to wrest the Scripture account of the creation, because it does not suit with the differing fancies of men. All that we see of the works of creation were brought into being by the command of God.
If we look with our human eyes we are going to miss the glory of God. We by faith need to trust in him who has done all things since the beginning of time. If we have faith in Christ we will be able to overcome the things that are tearing at our very being. We will be delivered from what the world deems to destroy us and we will be confident that God Almighty is on the throne and we will have peace and comfort. We will be able to move mountains, so live in faith and know that he is God. It will be easy and all you have to do is to trust in him.
God loves us far more that we will ever know and his plans are for us to prosper us and not to be destroyed. Have faith in God and you will see for yourself through your spirit and not through your mind or your human eyes.

An Evangelist called to preach the gospel all over the world. To lay hands on the sick and to prophecy to everyone. Reaching out to the world that all may be saved.
