You Have My Word
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1 NKJV).”
Faith is belief. The heroes of faith are listed in Hebrews Chapter 11.
‘I promise; you have my word.’
Maybe you’re old enough to remember when a man’s (or woman’s) word was their bond. Many business agreements and transactions were sealed with a promise and a firm handshake.
The promise was as good as the word of commitment.
Jesus is the Word.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God (John 1:1-2 NKJV).”
God has His word to back up each and every promise.
Faith is belief; it has weight, substance.
It’s not wishful thinking; hoping that we can trust what God has said to be true.
Faith is the assurance that what the LORD has said is always true.
He is the truth.
“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me (John 14:6 NKJV).”
Life is not hopeless!
“For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope (Romans 15:4 NKJV).”
