Day 166 – By Faith We Understand
‘Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.’ Hebrews 11:3
Genesis declared the world being framed by the word of God; Psalms 33:6 says: ‘By the word of the Lord were the heavens made.’ It is only by faith can your mind comprehend that all of the heavens and the earth was created by the word of God. This is the faith needed in this moment. For instance the word of God says in 1 Peter 2:24: ‘by [Jesus’s] stripes you were healed.’ So we know that Jesus has paid the price for your sickness and sin on the cross, so you can stand on the word of God that declares you are healed even when the pain still lingers; this is faith. By faith you understand the word of God that says you are healed, means you truly are healed.
When someone asks you how you can be so confident when all seems against you, you reply that you believe that when you pray God answers your prayers. You understand that what God is doing in your situation may not have physical proof or explanation but you believe in your heart because the word of God says so; this will become your faith testimony.
Living by faith declare that you understand what God has said simply because you believe it in your heart. What you say must be determined by what the word of God says. You base your understanding not on the world view but on the word of God; this is faith. May God bless your day as you stand on His word, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
