What does the Bible teach us what faith is?
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." - Hebrews 11:1
We see in this verse that faith is NOW, not yesterday or next week or next month, but NOW. We also see that faith produces something of substance. It is "the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
Faith is seeing and believing in things that you haven't received yet, but you believe that it will come. You have hope for something though there is no evidence of it coming yet. You believe it will come, but there is no evidence of it coming yet. "All things are possible to
Children are masters at faith. When it's time for their birthday, or time for Christmas, they will tell you all the things they want, and in their minds they believe that they will receive it. There's no question in their mind that they will receive what they want. We should walk in a childlike faith, believing that we will receive what we ask.
1. Your Faith Pleases God.
Do you want to know how to please God?
"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." - Hebrews 11:6
2. Your Faith Will Produce Anything That You Need.
22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. - Mark 11:22 - 24
When you believe you receive. Doubt and do without. What are you believing for? Have faith and believe that you will receive it. Choose to believe God and His Word.

I will be leaving on July 7 to move to the Philippines where I will be starting a new ministry helping others. We will be giving slippers, a hygiene pack and snacks to 608 children, and then we will be feeding over 300 children in 2 communities in Los Banos, Philippines.
We need your help. The children need your help. We are believing for an additional $7,000. Please partner with God and help feed the children.
Here is God's promise to you when you consider the poor:
1 Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.
2 The Lord will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.
3 The Lord will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness. - Psalms 41:1 - 3
Please give you most generous gift to help feed the children. Your gift of $25, $50, $100, $500 or $1,000 or more will make a great difference in the life of a child, a family and a community.
