More Substance

“Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Heb 11.1).  There are two aspects of faith in this biblical definition.  First, faith confidently expects that that which is hoped for will come to fruition even though it is not yet seen.  The Millennial Kingdom of Jesus Christ, Heaven, and eternal rest and reward are realities that simply remain unseen as of yet.  Things not seen are realities yet to be seen.  Expectation and trust are two concepts that come readily to mind.  Faith doesn’t continue to wring her hands in anxiety and worry.  Faith is anxious about nothing and casts all her care upon Him.  Faith considers daily miracles which abound and looks forward to still greater wonders yet to come.
