It is my belief that faith is God’s currency. Through faith our sins are forgiven because of relationship with his Son. In my short time on this earth, I have also seen the law of faith at work.
The law of faith, hope and belief is as concrete as gravity. You can’t see it but you see the result of unseen laws all the time. Vision, belief, accomplishment, world changing ideas happen through faith and action.
By faith wars are fought and won, by faith nations are built, by faith the dead are raised, hope is restored for the broken hearted and broken spirit, dreams are fulfilled. By faith all things are possible.
We were made powerful. Our words, thoughts and actions, through faith have the ability to bring life or bring death. It is a gift we all have been given, being made in the image of God.
Just like the law of gravity is seen, so is the law of faith. One man, Jesus tapped into the power of faith exercising it to it’s fullest purpose. He changed the world nullifying the power of death for those who have........ you guessed it, faith.
Here is an example of faith in action: In order to build a house, a person must have a vision in his heart, that vision is communicated. The vision is then sent to the minds that can draw up a structural plan. The plan is drafted it is seen only on paper but the vision is real in the mind of the visionary. Things start to happen...... traction......momentum is building.
They hire builders, break ground, get materials, supplies, start building until the project is complete and a house is built. If at any point along that process the vision stopped, they lost belief in the project and stopped moving forward the house would never have been completed. Faith, belief, hope and vision combined with action and implementation are powerful.
On the road of faith a person may go bankrupt, divorce, they lose their path, yet they do not ever stop believing and continue to move toward what they believe is their life’s purpose. They learn from all the past failures and get better.
At the end of the trial is success beyond what they ever thought was possible. All things are possible if we possess the faith to make it happen. All things according to the will of Jesus.
Faith is part of our vision to empower men and women to purpose, to instill in them faith to live, faith to accomplish their dreams, faith to move forward when life has broken their spirit and you need a second chance. It is never too late if you only have the faith with action.
