Faith is believing in advance what will only make sense in reverse.
True faith is relaxing in the present, confident that God is in control of the future. Look back and see that God’s plan played out to your benefit even though you may not have understood at the time. Can you rest in confidence today that God is in control?
V. Examples, Discipline, Disobedience Chapter 11 - Faith of the Ancients. Faith is the realization of what is hoped for and evidence of things not seen.
