EP07: WHAT IS BIBLICAL FAITH?
Hebrews 11:1-2, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.” (NKJV)
Hebrews 1:3, “He is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power. When He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down at the righthand of the divine Majesty on high,” (AMPC)
Hebrews 11:3, “By faith we understand that the worlds [during the successive ages] were framed (fashioned, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose) by the word of God, so that what we see was not made out of things which are visible.” (AMPC)
John 16:33, “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]” (AMPC)
Isaiah 55:11, “It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.” (NLT)
ASSESS & ACTIVATE
In your own words, define Biblical faith.
Hebrews 11:1-2 says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.” (NKJV) What are the three things that this verse tells us about faith?
Does faith deny my personal present experience? Why or why not?
What does it mean to identify with Heaven’s reality and where does the reality of Heaven know where to land?
The only thing that validates and releases power into my circumstance is faith that is rooted in God’s Word. Explain why that is.
Father, I believe that Your Word is eternal and does not change. When You send forth Your Word, it always produces fruit. I can rest assured that Your Word will accomplish all that You want it to and it will prosper everywhere You send it. Your Word is the only level ground on which I can lay my foundation. Jesus, You taught us to pray Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Right now, I choose to align my thoughts to heaven’s reality and by faith I am confident that I will see Your kingdom manifested in my circumstance. Thank you, Father! You are always faithful to fulfill Your Word.
