” Now Faith Is The Confidence In Things Hoped For, The Evidence Of Things Not Seen. ” -Hebrews 11:1
One of the most powerful truths, I learned (early on in my life) was the power of faith. Personally.. I was raised in the South (Texas) and I come from a lineage of family members (including myself) who were all raised up in the church, under the Christian Faith. As a young child, faith meant very little to me ( due to not being able to fully grasp concept) .. But NOW.. Faith is literally a proven, and powerful system, that I live my entire life by.
It pretty much goes like this..
Our thoughts (as humans) actually manifest, and become things. In simple terms: thoughts become things. This is a powerful spiritual law God created in the very beginning of time. As creatures made in the image of God, we are constantly manifesting our very own thoughts into things, based on the two main rulers of the spiritual realm: fear or faith.
In another article, I will delve much deeper into ‘how to’ overcome fear by using the power of faith, but for now, I want to focus on the fundamentals of faith.
Just as any other improvement with personal growth, it all starts with understanding. Look at it this way: Our minds are like a toolbox, and faith is the main tool within that toolbox; however, the only way to successfully use the tool of faith is by combining it with its counterpart, belief.
Confidence in believing, is what causes faith to transform and manifest from spiritual (Unseen) to the natural (Seen). Faith is truly the master tool to accomplishing the things your heart desires for yourself and your life. Below I’m sharing 3 tips on how to stir up, and exercise faith in your life; in able to experience an ongoing cycle of manifestation and victory within any circumstance.
- Tip 1: Faith is something that can only be successful with it’s creator. Kind of like when you purchase a new device, you need it’s manual (from the creator 0f the device) to help show you how to successfully operate it. Same principle applies to our creator when it comes to faith. Faith was created by God (our higher power) so to have a relationship with him is key. I highly encourage creating or building a relationship with him, which will give you the team player (you need) to help guide you through faith and believing, with confidence!
- Tip 2: Faith is like a muscle. In other words, it must be exercised, in able to grow. Just as any beginner lifting weights, in order to be successful (without hurting or hindering yourself) one must begin with a lighter weight until they are physically strong enough to add weight. Same exact thing applies to faith. I vividly remember as a “faith beginner” trying to stretch my faith far wider than what I was capable of fully comprehending (mentally) in that season, which ultimately left me disappointed. Be very careful of that. Faith only manifests at the level you can handle it, once it’s channeled through the right source. I’m extremely grateful that I never gave up on my relationship with God, or my faith; which has personally allowed me to experience some really cool manifestations in 16+ years. Remember: you always want to believe God for all good things in, and around your life. That dream career.. faith it! That dream home.. faith it! Start now by believing the very best for your life!
- Tip 3: The final tip I’m sharing comes with the realization that faith doesn’t always feel like “faith” or like a “good thing” when initially exercising it. Honestly, faith and fear oftentimes feel similar; because they are both asking you to believe in something that you can’t initially see. It is extremely vital to remember truth during times of faith. Anytime someone wholeheartedly believes in the best for a situation, good will manifest, but again, one must be careful to not allow fear to try and takeover while faith is manifesting. During those “scary” feels, Prayer and supplication with God is key.
Faith is an extremely beautiful ongoing process. The Bible reminds us that we go from faith to faith, and glory to glory as the years pass in our lives. I highly encourage to make faith a “lifestyle” if it isn’t already. With God and faith on your side, there’s no obstacle you can’t overcome, and no mountain you can’t climb. Wishing you all the best! Blessings! 🙂
