Now faith is the assurance (confirmation) of things hoped (we do not see, divinely guaranteed) for and the evidence of things not seen (the conviction of their reality – faith) perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses.
- Hebrews 11:1 Amplified
God is more real and nearer than we can imagine. There is no limit to the ways God can communicate and reach out to us lovingly everyday through sights, sounds, thoughts, scripture, and people. We are literally surrounded by His vibrant presence, alive in faces, expressions, and a person’s touch and kind words. He transforms broken lives into rebirth, gladness, and hope.
The Amplified Bible explains Hebrews 11:1 so well. Now faith is the assurance (confirmation) of things hoped (we do not see, divinely guaranteed) for and the evidence of things not seen (the conviction of their reality – faith) perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses. Hebrews 11:1 Amplified
Our Creator’s promise: “I love those who love me and those who seek me find me” (Proverbs 8:17 NIV). As we seek His face we will find all that we have longed for. The Psalmist wrote: “My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with Him?” (Psalm 42:2) The deepest yearnings of our hearts are for intimacy with God. God designed us to desire Him and to know Him. The more we experience God’s presence, the greater our faith and conviction of His ultimate reality.
Ask God to open your eyes to see Him, open your ears to hear Him, and give you a heart to seek Him.
Meditate on how God has faithfully answered your prayers, and how He has made life changing interventions in your life.
