Day 9 Evidence

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1

Evidence is powerful.  In an investigation evidence is collected to bear witness to or support a claim. It can corroborate someone’s testimony.   Evidence can even speak in the absence of an actual eyewitness.  In a court of law, evidence stands as a powerful testimony to events of a situation. People are convicted or acquitted based on evidence.

As I think about evidence, I am reminded of the television broadcast I used to watch called, “Ever Increasing Faith.”  Their opening song was strong and compelling. It asked the question, “Does your life show enough evidence?”  It was powerful years ago and it is powerful now.  Although I don’t know if they still use the song today I do know that the question is just as relevant. Your life was designed to show evidence of the existence of God.   Your life was designed to provide evidence of the power of salvation. Your life was designed to speak to the truth of God’s righteousness.  Living by faith provides indisputable evidence of God’s power, purpose, and plan.

If you take yesterday’s scripture and couple it with today’s you will find that your faith is the evidence that God exists because faith produces action.  Simply put, your faith in God produces action which supports, proves, and testifies to the power of God.  Your faith-filled actions prove that God’s will is good, perfect, and acceptable. 

Today, determine that your life will show evidence of things not seen by increasing your commitment to walk by faith and not by sight.

 Blessings to you,
