Fuel for Faith
David Jeremiah


Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1
 
James Watt, the eighteenth-century Scottish inventor and engineer, coined the term “horsepower” to compare the power of newly invented steam engines to the power of a draft horse. The horse and carriage gave way to the horseless carriage, or automobile, powered by gasoline. Now we are in another transition—vehicles are being powered by electricity rather than carbon-based fuels.

Everything is powered by something, even the Christian life. First and foremost, the Christian is empowered by the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:13). But from our human perspective, what empowers our life? We could say that faith is the fuel that keeps us moving forward. The New English Translation of Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for, being convinced of what we do not see.” Can you see God? Heaven? Rewards? Eternal life? Why would you keep pressing on for what you cannot see? Because of faith and hope which anchor our soul (Hebrews 6:19).

Since faith comes by the “word of God” (Romans 10:17), build your faith daily by studying and meditating upon the Scriptures. Let your “faith-power” deliver you through this life to the next.

Assurance is a fruit that grows out of the root of faith. Stephen Charnock
