Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. Hebrews 11:3
Faith is a way of life for the believer though. In order to tap into the constant flow of God’s blessing, we must constantly operate in faith. This is how God Himself operates. In Hebrews 11:3, we see that God used faith to create (or frame) the worlds. God always operates in faith. Jesus Himself operated in this faith as He walked the earth. He used His faith to cure sickness, multiply bread, and share prophetic insight about the end times. Jesus said that He would be killed and rise after three days (Mark 8:31). What would have happened if Jesus did not have faith that He would rise from the dead after being crucified? Where would we be? Chances are He would have never risen from the dead. Chances are also that we would never have had the opportunity to accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, become saved, and would have to spend eternity separated from God. Even in heaven, throughout eternity, we will always have to operate by faith. Since God always operates in faith, we will always have to operate in faith also since we are created in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:26). The good news is that we do not have to utilize our own faith. The faith that we use is God’s very own faith or “the faith of the Son of God” (Galatians 2:20). Also remember that faith comes by hearing the word of God (Romans 10:17)!
