Faith is the foundation of our hope, it convinces us of the existence of  things we do not see! 

2 Cor 5:7 NKJV   For we walk by faith, not by sight.

2 Cor 5:7 NIV   We live by faith, not by sight.

2 Cor 5:7 NLT    That is why we live by believing and not by seeing.

2 Cor 5:7 NMSG  It’s what we trust in but don’t yet see that keeps us going.


Jesus described a person without faith as a person without foundation.

Luke 6:49   But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.

Romans 10:17   So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.

 

To build up your foundation of hope in Christ, hear His words AND put them into practice! It’s what we trust in but don’t yet see that keeps us going, that keeps us walking by faith and not by sight!
Hold fast! He who promised is faithful. 
Keep trusting in the unseen and walking by faith 
Soon the working of My mighty hand will be seen 
The performance of My word will be evident to all.
