Faith is the most centered act of the human mind; an act of faith. Unthinking faith is a curious offering to be made to the creator of the human mind. It is faith in God and enthusiasm for life that makes our lives worth living. If we do not have faith, nothing is possible, and with faith nothing is impossible.
"Lord, make me a channel of thy peace; that where there is doubt, I may bring faith." In the Prayer of Saint Francis; A feeling and pain which is too lonely to know, that is doubt; with faith being his twin brother. Faith is when you are taking the first step, and the whole staircase is not visible, and it is a confidence, vision and trust in the achievement of God's will, even though unseen and unexpected by non-believers. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1)
Faith is courage, and when fear knocks at the door; faith will answer; there is no one at the door. Faith will make things possible, but they will not all be easy. Believers with faith have inward reservoirs of courage, confidence, calmness, hope and assuring trust in God that all things will come out with the vision of God’s will; even though in this world it would appear to come out most badly.
When faith in God is strengthened there will be no need to have a sense of control over our lives, that things will flow as they should with the vision of God’s will, and that we will flow with them.
In Matthew 17:20 Jesus said, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. NOTHING WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU."
As believers in Jesus Christ did He actually say this? If Jesus did we have to believe Him. In the Bible Jesus followers did; in 1 Corinthians 13:2 Paul said, "If I have a faith in all its fullness, to move mountains..." It was taken as a given that such things were possible. We can either trust that God is a good God or think whatever we wish. It is Our choice.
As believers with little faith, faith will bring our souls to heaven, but believers with a lot of faith will bring heaven to our souls. Faith in God can move mountains, but do not be surprised when God hands you some construction tools.
Having spiritual faith in God is like this; An exercise in faith; try to convince yourself that God exists; that is like trying to convince your shadow that the sun exists. Living a life without faith in something too narrow of a space to live in, and believing what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe, and it is knowledge within the your heart, beyond the reach of proof.
