Faith is Trust.

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1

Faith is not a matter of proofs.

Faith is a matter of trust!

There is no substitute for trust.

No one can manufacture faith.

God will be known through all our adventures.

These adventures become a deep and lasting friendship.

We must put our trust in God!

We must put our trust, our confidence in Him even in those tough problems that we think we can solve on our own, but can't.

We must put our trust in Him through those recurring doubts.

We must put our trust in Him through all those unanswered questions.

We must put our trust in Him in everything that we go through on a daily basis.

We must take God at His Word!

God's Word remains faithful.

If your house was burning, and your child ran back in upstairs and was surrounded by fire. The child then yelled at you - what would you do? Would you yell up and say that you would catch your child? Would your child have enough faith to be caught by you? What if the smoke was so bad that they couldn't see you, but you can see the child. The child finally jumped - that is faith.

We may say that we can not see God.

God can see us!

It is just as that little child that could not see there parent because of the smoke, but still jumped to safety because the child had the faith to believe that they were to be caught.

That child trusted the word of his parent, so it is with God.

We have His Word!

We must take Him at His Word.

We have the personal pledge of a personal God.

Won't you take your leap of faith?

"They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth forever." Psalm 125:1
