Before starting Exciting Faith Ministries, I knew very little about faith and how it operates. God gave me a name and told me to create a website. That’s it. That was a few years ago… This journey of faith has not been easy, but it has taught me some valuable lessons.
Here are 5 things that I learned about faith that will help you on your faith journey.
Everything that God is going to do for you, is already done. The amplified version of Hebrews 11:1 says it this way. “Faith is the confirmation”. Confirmation is another word for proof, so that means that your faith is proof that God is going to do what he promised.
The promises of God are given to everyone, but not everyone mixes God’s promises with their faith, and the outcome of this non-faith mixture becomes a disaster. When faith is mixed with the word of God, your life will become an adventure. You never know what is going to happen next, you just know it’s going to be good and exciting. (Hebrews 4:2)
Faith is not real until you put it into action by doing something. You can make the ” I got faith” affirmation all day, but unless you show some real signs and take some real action, then there is no real faith. Your faith is verified by your transformation; in other words, what you believe will decide your actions….. so what do you believe and do your actions verify what you believe? (James 2:17)
There are many people who are frustrated because what they are calling faith is not really faith. Many people take the leap of faith without seeking God first; they jump first then ask God to catch them; that is not how faith operates. God desires that we live a successful and prosperous life. The key to success is achieved by relying on God for guidance and strength. Faith is not believing God can its knowing that he will. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Faith is so real that it is called a substance. The word substance means to undergird or stand under. Your faith stands under and supports the things you hope for, it is the foundation of what you hope for and as long as your faith is secure and strong, your faith will hold up your hope until it manifests. (Hebrews 11:1)
