Faith For Your Vision (Jesse DuPlantis)


Dwelling inside of you right now is a built-in, God created substance for your vision! It is a powerful substance that is designed to be stimulated when confronted with the Word of God. What is it? It is the amazing substance the Bible calls faith. It isn’t floating around in the atmosphere somewhere. It’s in you. The Bible says that every person is given the measure of faith (Romans 12:3).

  What is faith anyway? The Bible calls faith the “substance” of what you hope for. It calls it the “evidence” of what you don’t see (Hebrews 11:1). It is another way of saying, “Jesus, I believe You can and will do this thing that I hope for. And because I believe that You can and will, I take Your Word as evidence that it is already done.”

  The King James Version’s definition of faith goes like this, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. 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 11:1-3). God used faith to create His vision to frame the worlds. He used that same substance to create you! The fact that you’re here at all came because God had faith! That ought to tell you something!
