My life has been a search for faith.  Faith in my Creator.  Faith in my Savior.  Faith in what my purpose is to be.

Over the course of my life, I've heard every kind of sermon, lecture & lesson on faith one can imagine.  Here I'll share some of the things I've learned that have stood out as really meaningful.

Something I've recently learned about faith is that, as the writer of Hebrews declared:

Hebrews 11:1 KJV
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Faith, then, is something we cannot see with out natural eyes.  We have to 'see' with eyes of faith.  So, when the situation seems to say one thing, we have to measure that message with the message of what God has to say about it. So many times in the Bible, we read of times when the natural 'facts' were overruled by what God had to say about it.  Pharaoh seemed to have the upper hand over the people of Israel, but God said His people were moving on.

Circumstance may say that things are one way, but God may have something very different to say.  The doctor may say the report is not good.  But God can still heal.  The bank may say the account is empty, but God can make a little stretch a long way.  Remember the few fish that fed the thousands?  God said the little would take care of them all.  And it did.  God still has something to say today over all that we see.  Reach out from where you are.  Trust.  He will meet you in His way, in His time, and in His ways we cannot imagine.

Facts do not equal Truth Sign   Here is a sign I made that can serve as a resource to help remember this lesson.  I urge you to read it and read it and read it again.  This lesson, well learned, can save your life.

This is a starting place.  Read these Scripture references & do your own searching for more.  You will be amazed at what you find.  The Bible is full of examples of God's miraculous working power that is available in we only believe.

The lesson here that we need to learn is this:  The facts may tell us one thing, but God's truth may tell a totally different thing. 

I'll post more asap.
