The assurance of our expectations, of the things we hope for, demonstrated by our actions, as though we have what we hope for in our posession, even though we do not have what we hope for in our posession.
Hebrews 11:1
If I were to buy a car I had never seen, or known to exist, from someone I trust and they signed the title to this car over to me.
The title is the assurance or FAITH I will have that car.
This assurance or FAITH was built on something tangable (the Title).
This assurance or FAITH was built on facts that I completely understand because the Title is used in my everyday life.
My expectation is to have in my posession the car that the title belongs to, but I have demonstrated FAITH by paying for that car, even though I have never seen that car or known of this type of car to exist.
Here lies the key to FAITH.
Where there is FAITH there also TRUST.
TRUST is proven to us beyond any doubt in our mind before we are asked to have FAITH in anything.
I have FAITH that I will have in my posession the car that this title belongs to and it will be all that I would expect because I trust this person whom I am dealing with.
