Living in Faith
By Ivan Ho 17 Dec 2016
Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
A lot of us live in hope rather than Faith.
Living in hope is better than living without hope, but we need to move from hope to faith. When we live in faith, we know that things we hoped for have already come to past even before we see them manifest before our physical eyes.
When hope is not based on what God says, then it is more like “wishful thinking”. But faith is not wishful thinking for it is established upon the word of God. When God speaks, what He says has already come to past, only a matter of time!
A lot of people, because they fail to see things happen in the circumstances around them, tend to loose hope and abandon faith, or try to make things happen in their flesh. Hagar and Ishmael were outcomes of the flesh when Sarah lost hope in what God has promised to Abraham. We need to guard our hearts and minds when things don’t seem to happen according to our time frame.
God speaks and it is done!
