“Now faith means putting our full confidence in the things we hope for, it means being certain of things we cannot see…it is after all only by faith that our minds accept as fact that the whole scheme of time and space was created by God’s command—that the world which we can see has come into being through principles which are invisible.” (Hebrews 11: 1-3, JB Phillips New Testament)
Faith is a powerful thing. It may also feel elusive to the rational human mind. We may find it difficult to believe what we cannot see, and to trust what is not validated by matter and the senses.
But faith is something we really do need and that is also natural to us. God has given us a feeling of hope. He has caused us to respond to those ideas and qualities that transcend the human experience and reveal something higher, deeper, more beautiful. We know these moments of awareness can take us to a place of reverence and expectation.
This is faith. It is a response within to what is true and real. We have it. What we must do is cultivate it, believe it, and remember with grateful joy that all that we wish to be true—God’s harmonious and loving creation and government—is actually true.
We can’t fathom the Mind of God. But we can relish it. We can accept it. We can choose the reality that opens up goodness and light and order and justice in our lives. With this premise in thought, we can begin to feel the effects. This faith brings heaven to our earth, and lifts the burden that the ego, the limited doubter, would try to put on our truly expansive, expressive, and fruitful lives.
