FAITH !!!!

"Faith involves a shift in focus, a shift in worldviews, a shift between that which we see to that which we cannot see, a shift in focus to that greater reality. Real faith is not based on the five senses. It considers that which cannot be seen as more real than what we experience in life’s circumstances.Yes at times, by faith in the invisible God in the unseen realm, and in spite of what the circumstances of this dimension told them, men and women destroyed cities, subdued kingdoms (against all earthly odds), stopped the mouths of lions, escaped the sword, quenched impossible fires and even received their dead back to life (Heb 11:30-33).This all by a faith that sees into this unseen realm."

Heb 6:13 "For when God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself, 14 saying, “Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.”[a] 15 And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. 16 For men indeed swear by the greater, and an oath for confirmation is for them an end of all dispute. 17 Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, 18 that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might[b] have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us."

When a young man decides he wants to be a famous actor, He "lays hold" of that dream until he sees it changes the way he lives his life, spends his money, the words he speaks..etc...

Man alive, we have a MUCH BETTER hope!! Lets lay hold of it, let it change the way we live our lives, spend our money, the words we speak...Not to become righteous, NO we ARE the very righteousness of God, now WE have the promise given to Abe...!!

Through faith (action) and patience (action) we will "lay hold" of it...and it will come, because God does not lie...!!
