The, “things not seen” is self-explanatory. “Substance” is the word that confused me the most when I started studying this verse. Thayer defines this as,  ”thing put under, substructure, or foundation.” We could say, “that which lies under.” So, to put this into perspective; our expectation of God moving favorably for me must have something under it as a foundation to build my expectation upon. 

What is it that is the foundation for me to expect something favorable from God? The things that cause me to believe that God will act favorably for me is the written promises of God that I find in His written Word! 

I personally have no expectation that Bill Gates ( Owner of Microsoft Corp.) would write me a check for $1,000,000.000. He has the ability, but I have no reason to expect that without a promise from him.
