Life Creation - Faith
" Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Heb.11:1)
In the last article that I wrote "Ask and it shall be Given" it is true that everything we ask for will be given to us. But why do things do not come and why do we not receive what we ask? Most of us ask these question but fail to recognize one thing needed - FAITH.
As the Bible is saying FAITH is the substance of things we hoped for. So in order for us to see the end results that we are hoping for we have to have FAITH. Even in growing plants, growing trees, taking care of sheep and cattle I believe we have FAITH that the seed we sow will grow in to plant, trees and that our sheep and cattle will grow in number. But what about in terms of Money? In relation to our Work, Businesses, Relations, Health why are we so worry about it? Because it is easy for us to see the seed grow than to see our Money grow. But why? Most of us worry about anything but what we don't know is it is the same as growing the Seed as growing the Money. And the same substance is required - FAITH. Worry is the opposite of FAITH. I heard one when I was watching the secret he says that scientists have already concluded that a positive thoughts is 10 times more powerful than a negative thought. So FAITH is 10 times more powerful than Worry. In this world we are bound by "What you see is what you get" or "To see is to Believe" but the thing here is "What we thought is what we get" and "To believe is to See". Like what I said in my previous article that we Visualized with our thoughts so by FAITH what we visualize, what we feel and what is ask is the one will manifest and the one we will get. Even the greatest Millionaires have relied on this so much specially in those times of depression and let us not forget our Lord Jesus Christ who is the author and perfecter of FAITH (Heb. 12:2) and from this FAITH everyone has benefited. Even if you believe and have FAITH that you will win the lottery your chances of winning the lottery will be good for the Bible says "If you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it would move. Nothing would be impossible."(Matt. 17:20). So if moving mountains needs a faith as small as a mustard seed would it be possible to use it to win lottery? Get the car you want? The house you want? The business you want? With FAITH everything is possible.
So there my friends let us not forget FAITH together with WORK, ENTHUSIASM will be a very good combination to RECEIVE what is being ASK from our Universal Creator.
GOD Bless and have a Great Day!!!
