Hebrews 11:1-6 Without faith it is impossible for any man to please God, because everything we do for God and in His name are done by faith. You can't believe that God exist without faith. Therefore, if you don't believe in the existence of God, you will not have the urge or willing mind to render services to Him. And you can't please God without service, worship, sacrifices and faith. So, to inherit the Kingdom of God demands for a sacrificial, obedient and faith services unto Him while we are alive on earth.

Hebrews 11:1 says; Faith

is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not

seen. A) Faith is the substance of hope. Hope alone is unseen. That is, it is still in the
spiritual realm or can be said to be illusion. But when FAITH is attached to Hope it brings out the substance of that hope. Substance is something we can see, touch or feel. That means that faith brings whatever we hoped for, be it in our heart, thought, imagination, visional or dreamed from the spiritual realm to the physical.
(Hebrews 11:3. John 1:1-3, 14).

B) Faith is the evidence of things not seen. In the court of law; evidence is prove or a
true witness. Who stands to authenticate a fact. Therefore, faith stands as prove, true witness or evidence we have to show the devil "Satan" that we have the right to obtain the answer of our prayers from God and it will be done. When we pray, our prayers is spiritual "that is unseen", but faith gives us assurance that we will obtain an answer. When our prayers get to God having the seal of our faith, it moves God to respond to the source of the prayer. When God responds to your prayer, the answer is given. That answer will be a physical result which then can be seen. This is why faith is the evidence of things not seen - (Hebrews 11:11-12). God made the first promise to Abraham when he was 70 years old. He repeated the promise again when he was 99 years (Genesis 17:1 -5) and God fulfilled his promise to Abraham at his 100 years old. That is the power of faith. Things that are impossible with man are possible with God. Though, our hope and expectations may tarry, yet, our faith is the only evidence that assures us that the answer will surely come. What promise have you received from God? What are your dreams, visions or expectations in life? Have your expectations tarry and now you feel hopeless and down casted? Cheer up! There is still hope for you. God has not forgotten you, it's just a matter of time and he will respond to your prayers. Only don’t give up your faith. Remember that God's promise to Abraham though, was delayed, yet, He fulfilled his promise. Time will fail me to talk about Hannah, Sarah, Elizabeth and Manoah (Judges 13:1-24). These people through faith obtained their promises. In the mist of all impossibilities, things were made possible through the power of their faith. That same God is your God if only you can trust Him and have faith in his word.
