Day 10 – What is Faith?

Updated: Jul 21, 2020

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and

assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)

“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists

and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)


Did you know that you operate in faith every single day? Every time you sit down, you have faith that your chair won’t break. Every time you get in your car, you have faith it will start. While these are little things, they are still acts of faith. Let’s go a little bigger. It takes an act of faith to believe that God exists. We can’t see Him, but we know He is there. Faith is simply an act of believing where we can’t see something in the natural. So if we can believe God exists, why is it so hard to believe that He can take care of our children, our jobs, and our finances. God loves your children more than you love them. He gave you the job you worry about all the time, and He has maintained your finances even where you have lacked discipline and made poor choices. We have all struggled, but we are not lacking.


I want to remind you that God is not human. This means he is limitless and perfect. He is completely trustworthy and incapable of sin or evil. You may feel you have to be in control of certain situations in your life because you were hurt or betrayed by someone, but that someone was not God. He didn’t even author the event. He is not asking you to trust in or believe in people, but rather in Him. He will not fail, forsake, or ever abandon you.


I can speak to you from experience. I have literally spent the last year living in the supernatural provision of the Lord. He has made the impossible possible. I have entrusted my children to him for many years as I was betrayed by my ex-husband and was divorced. Sharing my kids was the hardest thing I ever had to do. God promised he would take care of them and He did! I wanted to be in control because I lacked trust, but God made a way in hard places and is bringing me to a place of victory. I want everyone to have a revelatory experience with God.


I want to encourage you to open your heart to the possibilities God has for you. I know it seems scary, but in your leap of faith, God will hold out his hands and catch you.


Lord, thank you for showing me that you are more than capable of taking care of me. Forgive my lack of faith and my need to be in control. Help me choose to believe and trust in you as you continue to lead me, my family, and my finances. Amen.
