There will come a point in our lives where our faith levels will be tested – faith to believe in what you can’t yet see, and the ability to trust that what you are hoping for will come into existence at the right stage in your life. Do you ever feel restless when keeping your faith afloat? In the season we are in, understanding the meaning of life and applying faith to believe in the impossible can deem confusing, frustrating and somewhat, slow. However, it is in the seasons of delay and concern that our faith becomes stronger. We are more relentless when our faith levels are tested, pruned, stretched and transformed
Think of it as going to the gym; your muscles are being stretched and used on a regular basis; it becomes uncomfortable because the inconsistency of not attending the gym has enhanced your muscles on a level you haven’t experienced in quite a while. The faith that you have is an anchor that is for your own benefit. Nonetheless, you may know of someone right now that struggles with believing, especially when it comes to the big projects, dreams and aspirations. We can’t do every task on our own, and for this reason, we must come to the stage where we are selectively open-minded with those who we believe add value to our well-being and can keep us accountable in the faith.
This is a brief encouragement to remind you that in the hard times, your faith is being matured and it is working for you. Through the rejection, loss, betrayal, heartache; so many battles that one may have to face knowingly and unknowingly, are maturing you for a greater level of faith. When your faith is being nurtured, your mental state is also being trained to think the way your mind operates; to think positively despite the unexpected news is encouraging someone who may feel the need to give up. Remember that we do not exist just to survive, but to thrive; to inspire, encourage and impact others on their journey of faith that may feel off the edge.
Remind yourself each day to increase your faith and believe in the impossible, because anything is possible for the one who believes.
Hebrews 11:1 says that “Now, faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Let this be your anchor; what you wake to each morning believing that what you desire will happen according to your faith.
I want to give you a few questions to ponder on whilst reading the blogpost:
What is making you question what you can’t see at this time?
How can you believe in the impossible, even when your own thoughts tell you it won’t work?
How do you bounce back from the moments where it felt difficult to move on from?
Are you aware that being with someone who doesn’t have a healthy manner of faith can have an impact on your positive faith?
Don’t allow the rest of 2021 to pass you by and be complacent. Your maturity levels of faith will take you where you can’t go on your own. Keep the faith, keep the focus and keep believing! For what you desire will come to those who believe with their hearts.
