FAITH, What is it and how do I get it?My Personal Testimony
First let me say this, The wind blows where it wants to, and you hear its sound, but don't know where it comes from and where it is going. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit." With this in mind think about FAITH and where it comes from...
Which brings me to my next discussion of HOPE!
Hope is a template for faith:
In the post that follows this one I will explain it in more detail. Hope sets the goal and provides the template for you to believe. The power of belief is something everybody has. You use it to shape and guide your life on a daily basis. Think of it this way: hope is the blueprint of your dreams whereas belief is the concrete. What do you dream about? I dream about a world where communities are transformed from poverty into prosperity. I dream about things that spontaneously come to me during prayer, my childrenís life and those that I teach. This is not real itís a dream. Yet it provides the template for me to want something better in my life. There is a saying I have heard in Christian circles, Ďhope deferred makes the heart grow sickí (it comes from the proverbs).
When you lose hope you lose everything. I have seen the reality of this in peopleís lives. What you think about your life and the direction itís taking is very much the substance of hope. Everything you are doing is based on it. If you are a practicing lawyer, doctor, accountant or IT person you once hoped you could do that. That hope lived in you as a dream. Now that you are doing it, you no longer hope for what you have. Yet, if you didnít hope in the first place you would have had to template to form a belief in you, and the faith of believing that you could ever have done it to begin with.
However, just so you know. You never lose the faith totally. Sometimes people drift away and have doubts and this is perfectly ok even said by Christ himself. We can regain our faith by hoping and believing once again.
