What Is FAITH?

posted in: Uncategorized 0

Even though there is a worldly definition of faith, in my opinion, Hebrew 11:1 is by far the best description of what faith is. Hebrew 11:1 says, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Before we move forward, what are some things you hoped for but let slip away because of your fear? How many times has your faith been tested because what you hoped for and the reality of a situation didn’t add up? Things you once believed were possible are now being deemed as impossible, thus giving you the spirit of quit. Are you in the spirit of quit right now? Or are you still working towards that goal, that promotion, or something else that will bring greater to your life?

 

Because you have to believe what you don’t see, I know firsthand just how hard it is to move on faith. I can remember taking a millionaire mastery class with multi-millionaire David Imonitie Jr., who spoke on the importance of faith from the spiritual aspect. He stressed that “your faith is the only way to communicate and get a response out of God.” When you are looking for things to change, you have to possess mustard seed faith, knowing that what you want and need is coming. Some of us lose faith because of our lack of patience. However, if we realized our patience allows us to prepare and work, we would save ourselves a lot of stress and grief. As I fought with keeping my faith and having more faith in the unseen, I learned to capitalize and leverage the work I had to do in the meantime. Manifesting, Patience, Environment, and Work are the ingredients of sustaining between Asking and Receiving. It’s almost like an equation:

 

Ask (Faith) ->  Manifesting, Patience, Environment, Work -> Receive (I have it!)

 

Faith is like planting a seed and waiting for it to grow. You have no idea where and how it will start sprouting; you just know it will. You need to have that kind of faith in your life. That’s the faith that wins the game. Before we move forward, let’s explore what you should be doing in the meantime during our period of waiting.

Trust Yourself: No Validation Needed

Why do people feel the need for others to validate their life before they feel comfortable living for themselves?

It seems like validation is a requirement before people love, laugh and live life on purpose. Embracing the moves you make unapologetically will help to eliminate the idea of needing permission. Receiving suggestions from friends and family may be imperative when faced with a difficult situation or life-altering decisions; however, their words are opinion not law. Maintaining the power to make decisions for yourself should always remain your top priority. However, becautious on who you seek guidance from and who you allow to coach you through life. To some people, validation implies control as you transfer to seeking answers.

The blueprint of your life was already written and the tools to progress in life are inside of you. I want you to look at all that you have endured. Next, focus on the lessons learned. Think about how you are using that knowledge to make your life better right now. Do you see how seeking validation is meaningless – you already know what to do. Some will never point you in the right direction of your destiny. They are too busy creating a path that will lengthen your travels out of spite, jealousy or revenge. Think about the time you sought guidance from someone regarding a situation that had you completely speechless yet had no idea what to do or how to bounce back. You went to someone hoping to receive concrete answers and solutions but instead you hear, “If I were you, I would… ” After listening to what they would do, you realize that their answers do not match your personality. Do you really want to jeopardize your life finding peace the wrong way?
