Faith is about belief or trust in the truth or trustworthiness of a person, concept or thing. Faith is the persuasion of the mind that a certain statement is true and assent to the truth of what is declared by another, based on his or her supposed authority and truthfulness or a belief on religious doctrines and teachings as for Christians – Faith is the trust in God and in His promises as made through Christ and the Scriptures by which humans are justified or saved. The word Faith is often used as a mere substitute for Trust or Belief.
My faith is increasing. Every time I am at Triond, my confidence increases because I believe that I could write another fifty awesome articles to publish here. This is my faith and I trust myself I could do it though I would need the intervention from the source of all things the Almighty – to bless me and shower me bundles of ideas to write.
The problems we face in our individual lives, in our families and in our nations are greater than any of us can solve with our own judgment. They are problems for which we need inspiration and spiritual guidance. The things of God are understood by the spirit of God. What we all need is the motivating and powerful spiritual inspiration that can come into the lives of those who seek for it.
Faith is an asset beyond compare. It is so much more than an apostolic saying. It is a fact of life. It can become the very cradle of purposeful living. With faith we can rise above those negative elements in our lives that constantly pull us down. And with our effort we can develop the capacity to control those desires that lead to degrading and evil actions. With faith we can reach out to those who are discouraged and defeated and we can warm them by the strength and power of our own faith.
Faith in something greater than ourselves enables us to do what we have said we will do, to press forward when we are tired or hurt or afraid, to keep going when the challenge seems engulfing and the course is entirely doubtful. Faith and willingness to believe will quest pessimism away and replace it with hope and confidence. It is a source of endless personal comfort and peace of mind. Faith is the source that gives refinement to us. It motivates our finest deeds.
The awesome thing about prayer is that it is personal, individual and it is the most intimate communication between us and the Almighty. We can ask Him directly to bless us, to help us realize our good intentions and ambitions. We can ask the Almighty for the important things that mean so much to us in life and strengthen our families against the frauds, confusions and discouragements of our present society.
I believe that there is no greater thing we could do than to increase our faith and confident to the Almighty and to appeal to Him regularly through our personal and family prayer!
