Life can often feel like a rollercoaster ride, with ups and downs, moments of fear, and failure. During these times, it’s easy to feel discouraged or even question our faith. Some may even interrogate the existence of God or wonder if He truly has a plan for our lives. However, faith is one of the most potent forces in the world. It has the ability to transform how we think, act, and perceive the world around us. Whether you’re new to Christianity or have been a believer for years, faith is a term you’re likely familiar with. Hebrews 11:1 defines faith as

“Confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”

In other words, faith is the belief in something, even when there is no concrete evidence to support it. For many people, that something is God.

Exploring Faith

Faith is a state of calm and acceptance that transcends the heart and soul. It ignites hope and inspires us to strive for a better future. With faith, we are able to persist in our pursuits and overcome the challenges we face in our everyday lives. Although faith cannot be fully explained or quantified, its influence is undeniable. Those who possess faith are acutely aware of its significance and recognize that it is essential to their lives.

Awakening of Spirituality

Faith can make us realize that we are only a tiny part of the universe and helps us observe the bigger world. Isaiah 54:17 explains,

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that rises against you in judgment. You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,” says the Lord.”

This verse beautifully explains how having faith in the Lord can provide protection and security. Faith awakens a sense of spirituality within us, that we have a spirit and soul and that there are more significant matters than material needs and possessions. It may lead us to believe in God, who helps us go through life and the presence of other divine forces that may have a hand in how things happen. It makes our very existence tied to something we cannot even imagine.

Life’s Purpose and Pathway

Faith can provide meaning and route to our lives by making us believe that things can happen and that we can do what we want. Without it, we would not even try to hit our goals and achieve our visions. There is a lot of uncertainty about the future, and no matter how good our plans are, many things can change, including those that can disrupt our plans. Faith erases uncertainty and the notion that something might fail. It brings higher chances of success when combined with efforts.

Limiting Negativity

Faith makes us strong at tough times because we believe that whatever we face now is only a storm that will eventually pass, and there will be light afterward. In Peter 1:18, it is written,

“For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors.”

This verse shows how faith can provide redemption from the empty way of life that we inherited from our ancestors. A person with little faith may surrender when faced with difficult times, leading to depression and nervousness. Lack of faith can lead to people becoming more doubtful because they feel they do not have any control over their life. In contrast, an abundance of faith can ease the uncertainties in our minds and help us be more optimistic about our future and how we look at life.

Entrusting Us For Something Greater

Faith allows us to see beyond what we can understand through our senses alone. It’s not always easy to have faith when we rely only on science and our abilities. No matter how much we achieve, there are limits to what we can do and how much support we can get from others. Faith expands our support system by developing our trust in something greater than ourselves that can help us through our problems.
