faith is

“The Bible talks about faith from Genesis to Revelation but there’s only one definition given. It is found in the book of Hebrews.

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen…

Hebrews 11.1

We can learn several things from this verse. Faith is *now* or it is not at all. Faith is present tense; hope is future tense. Faith is believing before seeing, but it will eventually bring substance to what you have believed. Faith is not passive, but active.” _Dennis Bennett

One of the most appalling comments on our present way of life is that half of all the beds in our hospitals are reserved for patients with nervous and mental troubles, patients who have collapsed under the crushing burden of accumulated yesterdays and fearful tomorrows.
Yet a vast majority of those people would be walking the streets today, leading happy, useful lives, if they had only heeded the words of Jesus: “Have no anxiety about the morrow”; or the words of Sir William Osler; “Live in day-tight compartments.”                                                    

Think about this today. Then rest and relax in Him!
