If your facts aren't truthful and accurate, all of your faith in something doesn't matter because it is based on untruth! Faith is an action; not a state. It comes from the Greek ‘pistis’, meaning an “inner attitude, conviction, or trust relating man to a supreme God or ultimate salvation. In religious traditions stressing divine grace, it is the inner certainty or attitude of love granted by God himself” [dictionary.com].
Faith is the action of talking your talk and walking your walk completely trusting in God to guide your way. If you base your faith in God on things that areuntruthful, it will not manifest because you are operating on belief and NOT trust. Belief is the ‘confidence’ in something being truthful by the memorization of your experiences and the repetitiveness of your thoughts. It is an ‘opinion’ based on the observations and convictions you have concerning the ‘facts’.
Faith is NOT a belief. It is the action you take when you trust in the Divine completely! It is walking down a dark path knowing you will arrive safely at your destination. The correct form of the word should be ‘faithing’, because it requires movement in a direction and it is NOT a static state of existence.
Faith is a dynamic state where you take what you believe and put it into action. If your faith in something yields undesirable results, then youwill know what exactly you need to change; your belief in whatever it was as being accurate. Too many times people rely on erroneous beliefs to control them, dominate them and manipulate them into yearning for things they ‘believe’ that they need; when in fact they DON’T need them!
Listen to your inner heart to guide you by ‘faithing’ favorable results in your life. You can do this by not focusing on what you perceive that you need. Instead, focus on the fact that you are worthy to receive that which will edify your Divine purpose being unfolded in Divine order. Divine order affects natural order by the thoughts, feelings, beliefs, words, actions and behaviors you express into your life.
It all comes from developing a complete and utter trust in the Divine to unfold what you need when you need it to become that which you were created to be! Faith your way to manifesting your Divine purpose in Divine order by living in the truth and NOT in the supposed truth of your belief system. Be ye therefore perfect. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
