Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1
Think about cookies! When you want to eat a fresh baked cookie, you go to the store and buy the cookie mix. Faith is the cookie dough, it is the substance of the cookie your hoping for but until you bake it you don’t have the cookie yet OR the evidence is not seen YET. The cookie dough is NOT the cookie but it is evidence that you will have a cookie once its cooked. You put the dough on a cookie sheet and pop it in the oven knowing that cookies are on the way. What do you do while you wait? Rejoice… the cookie is on the way…lets get some milk!
The Word of God is our cookie dough or our substance of what we believe God for. We need to find the scripture that promises what we need and we need to treat it like its our cookie dough. We need to plant that Word in our hearts and meditate on it until it becomes real to us. We need to rejoice because we know that if God said it then it will come to pass. He is no respecter of persons. If He did it for one then He can do if for us. We have to believe (trust in the Word) and know we have it on the inside before we will ever see it on the outside. The evidence is that God is true to His Word. If we believe it and trust in Him we will see it show up in our lives! Praise God!
