Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.
(Hebrews 11:1 NLT)
We plan a cruise hoping for a good journey to a beautiful destination as we put our faith in the sea worthiness of the ship and the navigational abilities of the captain even though we have never personally met him face to face. We hope for our heavenly journey putting our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ to bring us there safely. Even though we have never seen Him face to face we believe in the trustworthiness of His Word.
