Faith is such an interesting concept. 

It’s this currency, this belief and trust in God that’s real, active, and carries weight. 

In my mind, it’s more than just hope…some ethereal wish or desire for something to happen.

Faith has substance.  

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. Hebrews 11:1-3

Faith is God’s currency. It’s His way of partnering with us to get things done here on earth. 

Our salvation is based on faith.

Over time I’ve seen the fruit of a life spent in relationship with God.

His Word comes alive as I read it, clinging to every scripture.  It’s all a feast, as the belief has moved past my head and into my heart.

When your faith blossoms, you begin to step out and put into practice what Jesus already said. 

You say in your heart, “well God said it, so it’s true.  I may not understand everything yet, but it’s right there in His word.”

I will worship toward Your holy temple, And praise Your name For Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word above all Your name. -Psalm 138:2

And as you take leaps of faith, often with fear and trepidation, you run with a knowing in your heart that God won’t fail.  That somehow, someway, He will work it out.  You know He has the plan, so you just get to watch it unfold as you follow Him.

This is faith that’s rooted in God’s nature and character. 

Faith like this allows you to look back and see how faithful He’s been to you, especially, when you weren’t faithful to Him.

So when God says His word will not come back to Him void…you believe Him.

You no longer let the words gloss over you, but you get excited…resting in the fact that you’re now in right standing with our Heavenly Father.  Jesus’ finished work on the cross was enough.

And you believe God hears you when you pray.

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.  And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him. 1 John 5:14-15

Jesus asked His disciples a simple question.

“Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” -Luke 18:8 

The interesting thing about faith….It’s as simple as agreeing with what God said.  

The hard part, in my opinion, is placing His word where it belongs.  Higher than our past experiences, unanswered prayers, family’s experiences…and the whole God-denying world around us.

God says He’s not a man that He should lie. And when we come across something we don’t understand, He gave us the Holy Spirit to “lead us into all truth.”  Y’all we’re in a win-win, can’t-lose situation. 

Faith is beautiful because we get to partner with the Most High God to see His will in our lives and on the earth.

Our part is simple, and it’s consistent with how we interact with Him every day.  

We trust Him, and we believe Him.  

We get on board with what He’s already said about us, and as we do that, our faith and hope grow as we begin to see the fruit of answered prayers in our life.


Restful Faith is my journey to a life trusting God with my most precious goals, hopes and dreams instead of living in fear, worry, anxiety and depression.
