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


It is God’s grace to make his child walk by faith not by sight. While the unbelieving trusts in earthly foundations which fleshly senses deceptively perceive to be substantial and lasting, faith is the substance of things hoped because it rests in the immoveable, eternal foundation Christ Jesus the Rock.  While the unbelieving seeks evidences in signs which fleshly eyes can see, which evidences shall be dissolved; faith is the evidence of things not seen because it believes on Christ whose new creation, though unseen with natural eye, is immovably secure and eternally permanent by his righteousness and holiness.
