The scripture for this session is Hebrews 11:1, which explains the characteristics of faith.  The Good News Translation says, “To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see.”

This is the traditional biblical definition of faith; however, Webster’s 1828 Dictionary says faith is a noun with a Latin root meaning fides, fido, or to trust.  One of the meanings of faith is that it is a firm, cordial belief in the veracity of God, in all the declarations of his word; or a full and affectionate confidence in the certainty of those things which God has declared, and because he has declared them. 

 Although these are the definitions of faith, Lucia explains that we cannot apply definitions to situations.  We have to extract from the definition what the definition actually means and then apply it to our situations.

Faith is the key that operates everything in the Kingdom of God and everything we receive from God we receive by faith!  As we look at Hebrews 11:1, we see faith has a time.  There’s a time when faith is faith, and there’s a time when it’s not, and you have to know the difference. So, when is faith, faith?  Hebrews 11:1, tells us faith is present tense.  Faith is always NOW! If what your speaking and believing is not now, then it’s not faith!

Settle in your mind that God has done everything He’s going to do! Your job is to simply believe you receive what He’s already done!  That’s how faith works.
