The following are 7 Must-Read Lessons on the Power of Faith:
1. Faith Requires Action
“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
The scripture says “Faith without corresponding action is dead.” In other words, faith without action is not really faith at all. If you believe, you will act differently. A person who knows they’re going to win plays differently from someone who thinks they’re going to lose. A person who is expecting a child acts differently from a person who is not expecting a child, expectation determines faith. Expectation is a sign of your faith.
Do you have faith in your dreams? Are you expecting them to be manifest?
2. Faith Makes the Impossible Possible
“Without faith a man can do nothing; with it all things are possible.” – Sir William Osler
The faith that I’m referring to will actually cause your desires to be manifest. It’s the strangest thing, having faith that you will succeed, will actually cause you to succeed. Your faith will attract to you the components necessary for your success.
3. You Can Grow Your Faith
“You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith.” – Mary Manin Morrissey
The Apostle Paul said, “Faith cometh by hearing.” I say, “Fear also cometh by hearing.” So guard what you hear, guard what enters your thoughts, because what you continually hear will grow on the inside of you, be it faith or fear.
4. Have Faith in Faith
I would rather err on the side of faith than on the side of doubt. – Robert Schuller
Without being fully convinced that what you want to happen is about to happen you won’t take the steps necessary to make it happen. When you believe something is going to happen, you get prepared, you start making changes, you get ready for the pending modification that you’re about to experience, you’re certain it’s about to come. You’re telling people about it and you’re getting excited it, not because you’re “faking,” but it’s a natural reaction from your belief system.
5. Fear is Faith
“Fear is faith that it won’t work out.” – Author Unknown
If you’re using your faith, use it for your benefit. Since you’re going to believe something, you might as well believe something positive. Use your faith to do the impossible, dare to do what’s never been done before.
6. Faith Feels
“Faith is a bird that feels dawn breaking and sings while it is still dark.”– Rabindranath Tagore
Faith does not “hope” that you succeed; neither does it wish that one day you succeed. When you have faith, you know that success is yours, and you act like it.
You act differently when you “have faith!”
You may not be able to see anything in the physical world, but you know what’s about to happen, you can see it in your mind; you can sense it in the atmosphere.
7. Achievement Requires Faith
“Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.” – Gail Devers
Faith is a power that can shape your destiny and that will alter your life!
Without faith that your dreams will come true, without knowing that they will come true, they won’t come true. All achievement requires faith. They weren’t surprised when they landed on the moon, they believed it was possible. What do you believe is possible?
