Faith speaks volumes about our unquestioning belief in God. It’s important to have faith because otherwise, disappointments in life could drag us down, so much so that we might not be able to lift ourselves up anymore. There are times in our lives when things don’t go as well as we want them to. We could encounter problems with our jobs, our finances, and even our personal relationships. But at the end of the day, everything will work out just fine as long as we have our faith to hold on to.
You will appreciate the value of your own faith once you learn to understand it on a deeper level.
Here are some of the things you need to know about faith.
Faith helps you conquer your fears.
Fear can paralyze us – it can keep us from moving forward. When we fear the outcome of a major life decision, we typically put it on hold. We try not to act on it for fear of losing, or for fear of making the wrong decision and not being able to undo the damage. But if your faith in God is strong, you will not allow your fears to control your life. You may still be scared about the outcome of your decisions, but because you trust in God, you will be able to rise above your fears knowing that He is with you every step of the way.
Faith is a leap into the unknown.
One of the things that we constantly struggle with is our obsession with knowing. As much as possible, we want to know everything before we take a leap. We want to be assured of a safe landing. But life will not always allow us to have a safety net. No matter how hard you try to protect yourself from the things that you do not know, it could find a way to catch you off guard, or worse, hurt you. But regardless of all of that, if you have faith in God, you will leap into the unknown without worries because you know that God is always looking after you.
True faith is tested when we face trials in life.
It’s easy to have faith when your family is healthy and your bank account is getting fatter and fatter. But when bad things happen and you feel scared, alone, and desperate, that’s often the time when your faith could waver. This happens to a lot of people, so if this has happened to you in the past, do not feel bad. God gives second chances to those who try to strengthen their faith by reaching out to him in prayer. Seek our God amidst all the trials in your life and know that these trials are not meant to break you; rather, they are only meant to help build your faith. Prove to God that your faith in Him is unwavering and you will soon live a life filled with His love and generosity.
Faith saves us from ourselves.
Ever noticed how negative thoughts and actions easily impact the different aspects of your life? And when you live a life filled with negativity, changing for the better seems hopeless; the future seems bleak. But you will not go down this path if you have an unwavering faith in God. In spite of all the difficulties and the trials, your faith will help you appreciate the good things in your life. It will keep your heart believing and hoping that in His perfect time, God will grant you your heart’s desire.
Faith is all is about joyfully experiencing the miracles of life around us, appreciating the small triumphs that we are basking in at present, and believing that God is orchestrating all the beautiful things that are happening in our lives. So no matter where your journey takes you, hold on to your faith and keep trusting in God’s love.
