Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. And so what does faith do for us? Pastor Ford says that it gives us insight into foresight like it’s hindsight. In other words, as believers in Christ, God lets us know what our future is going to be, so that we can have faith in Him and in our future.
