Heb 11:1 AKJV Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Good day all, there are many important topics in the Bible, but one of the most important doctrines in the Bible is faith. Let me explain.
Faith is so important that Heb 11:6 says, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
Faith is so important that 10 men who were leaders missed the promised land because of their unbelief. Num 14:22-23
Heb 3:18-19 AKJV 18 And to whom swore he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not? 19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
Faith is so important that Jesus told the disciples after cursing a fig tree, “Have faith in God.” Mark 11:22, then he said,
Mar 11:23 AKJV For truly I say to you, That whoever shall say to this mountain, Be you removed, and be you cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he said shall come to pass; he shall have whatever he said.
Faith is so important that a woman who was sick for twelve years got her healing, after saying, “If I could but touch his garment, I would be made whole.” Matt 9:21
Then Jesus responded by saying, in Mat 9:22 AKJV
“But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; your faith has made you whole.” And the woman was made whole from that hour.
Faith is so important that after Habakkuk expounds on writing the vision, making it plain, running with it and waiting on it he says,
Hab 2:4 AKJV Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.
Faith is so important that God blessed Abraham high and above measure because he believed God! Gen 22:16-18
Rom 4:3 AKJV For what said the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him for righteousness.
Faith is so important that a man needed some deliverance for his son. He brought him to Jesus, and Jesus said,
Mar 9:23 AKJV Jesus said to him, If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.
These are only a few examples and scriptures of the importance of faith in your life.
Today, release your faith and trust God for whatever is in your heart. Whether it be a goal, dream, vision, or an aspiration. Remember to trust God through the eyes of faith to overcome, and accomplish all that is in your heart! Because through the eyes of faith, God is always faithful!
