Faith means believe it before seeing the manifestation. It is a conviction rather than a proof that something exists. It gives me access to the unlimited wisdom of the Creator and it is sometimes interpreted believe. .In fact the Big Book says ‘Without faith, it is impossible to please the Creator of the Universe’.
You are walking down an alley way and you cannot see the end, but you know there is an end. You may also have seen the end but not know how to get there. All you know is you’ve got to get to the end regardless of how you get there. Faith is taking the steps (blindly )in order to complete the journey because you are sure of your destination.
God is moved by faith and not by our various sacrifices including fasting. To obey is better than sacrifice, submission is better than offering the fat of rams. Faith is about being okay when all things may not be working the way you expect.
The bible is full of stories of people whose faith (belief/trust) enabled them to accomplish great things..Abraham believed that he would be a father of nations even when he was told to sacrifice his son on the altar. Moses, through faith led the Israelites as God intended though he initially was reluctant because he was a stammerer.
Moses sent twelve spies to spy out the land of Canaan. Ten spies returned saying ‘the land is full of giants and we see ourselves as grasshoppers’, two spies returned saying ‘we are able to take the land.’ The language of faith spoken by Joshua and Caleb ensured they were the only adults who entered the promised land.
What promises or conviction have you had regarding various issues of your life.What are you doing about it? Have you allowed your analysis of your situation to paralyse you such that you are not able to progress? Whatever it is, help is at hand, engage God in your affairs.
How can my faith be increased you ask? All you need is faith like mustard seed. In order to walk effectively in faith, we need to confess the Word regularly. This is sometimes called affirmations. We need positive affirmations to build our faith. Our words are spirits and are effective if spoken.
I challenge you today to begin operating as someone who is indeed the architect of his life. The changes you desire are waiting to happen, it all depends on you.
