Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].
(Heb. 11:1 AMP)
Is faith a leap? Not really. Faith is the assurance. Faith is the proof. Faith perceives. A leap implies the unknown. A leap lends itself to hit or miss. Faith is not a leap. Faith is a fact.

The God-kind of faith...takes God at His Word, because it has spent time with God to hear His voice, because it knows that God is not a man that He should lie, so if He said it, He must have meant it.

The God-kind of fully persuaded that God is able to perform the very thing He promised because it knows that heaven and earth will pass away before God's Word will pass away.

The God-kind of faith...trusts all of its weight on the living and active Word which is able to divide between soul and spirit and effectually work within us, knowing that God watches over His Word to perform it.

Faith is not a leap. Anything other than faith IS a leap. Anything other than faith is a roll of the dice; it's a que sera sera way of life; it's a 50/50 chance or an "I hope so" existence.

The Bible is clear: faith—the God-kind of faith—is a known commodity, not a leap.
And this is the confidence (the assurance, the privilege of boldness) which we have in Him: [we are sure] that if we ask anything (make any request) according to His will (in agreement with His own plan), He listens to and hears us. And if (since) we [positively] know that He listens to us in whatever we ask, we also know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that we have [granted us as our present possessions] the requests made of Him. 
(1 John 5:14-15 AMP)

Say It: Father, I thank You for Your Word. I am so glad that living by faith in not a leap into oblivion, but it is the assurance and title deed of things hoped for. Thank You for helping my faith to grow and be strong as I feed on Your Word. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
