A demonstration of faith in the natural sense.
My question to me this morning is "What is faith?"

The dictionary provides a few answers and examples. I chose two.

The first one: A strong belief in God or in the doctrines of religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.
The second one: The complete trust or confidence in someone or something.

When going through a few trainings in my young life, instructors would parade a few or up front, line us up in front of the class, blindfold us, and then say just fall back. Some of us would fall back knowing that there just was no way that we were being told to fall backward without some plan for catching us.

Years later, I tried that faith training out in my Sunday School class to demonstrate faith, and just one trusted me not to let him hit the floor.
Most of us talk about our faith in the Lord, but few of us really do for if we actually trusted, we would be able to move mountains. I include me in that most because I know that my faith is weak. I am still dreading that shot I in my eye that probably could have been healed years ago had my faith been what I would want it to be.

Look again at the two definitions. How strong is your faith? Do you actually believe in life after death? OR are do you still need some kind of proof?

WORKING in my faith today. STEPPING out on it. BELIEVING that my faith will get me through every difficulty that may come my way, and that grace and mercy will sustain me. DEMONSTRATING it!

Peace and blessings to you always.
