Taking a Leap of Faith
April 20, 2021
"What is a leap of faith?"
I found this about taking this leap of faith:
“Answer: The book of Hebrews is an excellent place to find answers to our questions about faith. Chapter 11 begins with this short definition of faith: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1).
"What, then, is a leap of faith? The term leap of faith is not found in the Bible. It is a common idiom, though. Usually, to take a leap of faith means 'to believe in something with no evidence for it' or 'to attempt an endeavor that has little chance of success.'"
I’m not saying that I know everthing there is to know about faith, but I have had the opportunity to walk it out a few times and it never works out when I blindly do something that I never heard God speak to me through His Word.
Testimony: there was a person that was going to Bible School at the same time that I did. He had a desire to get a new car so he was believing God for one. He gave his car away in a leap of faith and ended up walking to school for the rest of the year. Faith is not made recklessly. Learning to trust God for what He says in His Word is different than hoping God will perform His Word because we say so.
Thank You, Father, that you are still speaking to us and that’s where faith is birthed. In Jesus's name, Amen.
Romans 10:17 (NKJV)
17 "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."
Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
