Faith is very real. It’s not just a feeling or a thought you force yourself to believe in your mind. Faith is the very substance that makes what we hope to receive real. The source in which our hope is centered. Something you can “hold.” Not a feeling or a thought but a real actual substance to hope from. Since we have such a substance in that which we hope for it proves what we hope for is real. It gives evidence that what we can’t see yet is more real than what we can see currently.
Growing in your Faith begins with focusing more on the substance in which your hope is grounded than on what you can’t see.
Hebrews 11:1 NKJV
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
