(The Difference Between Trust And Faith)
TO THE BIBLE: Hebrews 11:1
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
Trust is the confident assurance in God’s personality, that He is who He says He is and will do what He says He will do. Trust is for all-time, and it will keep you hoping for a brighter tomorrow, even in the darkest of nights. Your trust in God keeps you standing and expectant that your miracle will eventually come to pass. Without it, there can be no basis for faith.
However, faith is different from trust. Faith is defined as the “evidence” of unseen realities; it’s the “proof” that what you were hoping for is yours now. Faith is not futuristic, it is for now: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Therefore, faith dictates the pace and the terms. Faith doesn’t say “God is going to do it”; it says “God has done it!” Trust has no time-limit and you can reap the benefits of trust for as long as you live, but faith is in possession of it NOW!
If what you desire is a “now” change, then convert your “trust” to “faith.” Move from just believing that God will answer you some day to acting on the Word NOW! The one operating in trust will say, “I know my redeemer lives; He will not disappoint” and that’s great. However, when his faith kicks into operation, he’ll say, “I thank you Father, for you have answered my prayer and have granted me everything my heart desires. Glory, Hallelujah!” Make a demand and believe that you receive what you ask for.
2 Corinthians 1:9-10; Hebrews 11:1-3
Dear Father, thank you for enlightening the eyes of my understanding to know the difference between faith and trust. I trust you totally and unreservedly and I declare that my faith is working and producing results today, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
