The power of faith vs. the danger of delusion

There is nothing more powerful than faith in God. Faith can move mountains, because it trusts in a mountain-moving God. Faith can change the destiny of whole nations, because it believes in the one who created the nations. That’s why the entire Bible puts such a strong emphasis on faith, from beginning to end.

But faith is not fantasy. Faith is not simply affirming the figments of our own imagination. Faith is anything but delusional.

Instead, true faith is firm trust in ultimate and absolute truth, even when all evidence is against it. In the famous words of Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”

That’s why faith is not moved by circumstances or feelings. That’s why faith rejoices before the answer comes. That’s why faith is sure even when there is every reason to doubt.

As the old (and seemingly) trite saying goes, “God promised it, I believe it, and that settles it.”
