Faith

Faith is the confidence that what I hope for will actually happen. Faith gives me assurance about the things I cannot see. I cannot see the wind, yet I have no doubt that it exists. So by faith I let my kite go, believing that it will be carried by the wind. By faith I understand that the whole universe was formed at God's command. That what I see now did not come from anything that can be seen. By faith my children would jump from the edge of the couch, knowing that I would catch them. What kind of father would I be if they jumped, only to have me pull back and watch them fall? I would never do that, and neither would my Heavenly Father ask me to jump without being there to catch me! By faith I know that anything I do in accordance with God's plan, will succeed.

Hebrews 11:32-35 "How much more do I need to say? It would take too long to recount the stories of the faith of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel, and all the prophets. By faith these people overthrew kingdoms, ruled with justice, and received what God had promised them. They shut the mouths of lions, quenched the flames of fire, and escaped death by the edge of the sword. Their weakness was turned to strength. They became strong in battle and put whole armies to flight. Women received their loved ones back again from death."
