Scripture: Hebrews 11:1-3
Hebrews 11 is commonly called Faith’s Hall of Fame. Faith in verse 1 is translated from the Greek word hoop-os-tas-sis and means ‘substance,¬¬’ or ‘to face something squarely and to put it under your feet.’ We are told, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.” So faith comes from the unseen realm and we use it to create God’s will, His purpose, His Promised Land and most of all we use it to please Him. So the real issue for every generation becomes how we define the faith that pleases God. Do we always have to have a victory or get what we are believing for? Do we always expect to see what we declare and decree in faith? According to Hebrews 11, how should we define the working out of faith in our lives?
