YOUR FOUNDATION OF FAITH
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
1. FAITH IS THE SUBSTRATUM
The word substance actually means – your foundation – upon which you stand.
2. YOUR FOUNDATION OF FAITH IS ABOVE YOU
The foundation of your faith is the word of God. We stand on the promises of God.
They are not under our feet in this dust realm – but come from above us. So it is upside down. My foundation is not of this world – but is of the spiritual realm.
No wonder the Bible says that God will do exceeding abundantly ABOVE all we dare ask or think.
Your faith foundation is above you.
God wants you to overstand in life.
Stop needing to understand everything with your reason and start overstanding by faith.
When Peter walked on water – it was not the sea that supported him – but his faith foundation from above. He was overstanding and supported by heaven.
3. YOUR FOUNDATION OF FAITH WILL BRING THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN
People who overstand – see God do things that defy logic and reason.
Their heavenly foundation supports heavenly things.
People of reason and understanding are blown away by things common in your world – but unseen in theirs.
Do everything you can to build an above foundation in your heart and mind – and then commit to standing on it – believing to see the unseen as a normal part of your life in God.
