Dearest hearts you have a love/hate relationship with the energy you call faith and that confusion is preventing you from fully entering the kingdom within. No one can be of two minds and succeed, just as one cannot walk up the stairs at the same time one is walking down. The only way to make progress is to walk one way. It really doesn’t matter if you choose to go up or to go down, it only matters that you stay the course. We are certain that after enough challenges you’ll choose ease but we’re uncertain if you’ll ever decide if you keep moving back and forth between the two outcomes. This is why walking in faith is paramount.
When you say that you have faith but you’re unable to state what it is you believe, you’re not demonstrating faith, you’re showing your foolishness
Walking in faith is not walking blindly into the night hoping something good will happen. It’s not throwing yourself off the cliff hoping you remembered to pack a parachute. Faith is a working partnership. When you say that you have faith but you’re unable to state what it is you believe, you’re not demonstrating faith, you’re showing your foolishness. You must understand that faith is an active act, not a passive pursuit. Before you can make the claim that you’re waking in faith, you must understand what you’re believing in, where you’re putting your trust and what you’re expecting from this relationship. If you’re placing your trust in, “I hope so,” then you’re not building faith, you’ve chosen to slide by and hope that things will work out.
Faith that springs from a Divine connection will be a foundation upon which you can build your life
Today, we wish to share with you what faith supported by the Divine requires from you and what you’ll receive from your effort. Faith that springs from a Divine connection will be a foundation upon which you can build your life. Wishful thinking that provides nothing with which to anchor yourself is not faith. Reading, memorizing, or repeating words is not faith. Faith is interactive. Faith is not God spoon-feeding you as though you’re a child of limited knowledge. Faith is a state of being that you earn by repeatedly being willing to grow, to learn, and to trust. Walking in faith is not something that you can learn to do quickly nor can it be forced but once faith is acquired, it will be difficult to convince you, dear one, that you were wrong to walk in faith.
Just like everything that requires mastery, faith must begin with small acts of trust that have no pressure attached to them
So exactly how does one begin to develop their faith muscle and why are faith and hope not the same. First, just like everything that requires mastery, faith must begin with small acts of trust that have no pressure attached to them. You must begin with the simplest belief and manifestation and move forward from there. If you try to build faith when it matters most or when you’re in crisis, the pressure will be too great, and instead of building faith, you’ll be cataloging a lot of reasons why faith is a fairy tale created to pacify the weak. Understand that those who walk by faith do so because the ground beneath their feet is a steel girder of truth that supports every decision and every step they take.
Those who walk in faith have proven to themselves over and over again that God will support them
Hope, on the other hand, is not the energy of certainty. Hope is wishful thinking. A behavior and mindset that’s adopted when doubt is crowding out certainty. Those who walk in faith have proven to themselves over and over again that God will support them. This belief is their guide to calm and peaceful living. A state of being that promotes decisions and actions for their highest good, not their immediate gain. At times the reward of faith will be instantaneous but more often than not faith is a journey into your own inner expansion.
Unless you are willing to spend time building a relationship with the Creator you will never know if you can trust them to bring forth your good
So, how does one go from wishing it were so, to knowing it is certain? You must bring discipline into your life. Unless you’re willing to spend time building a relationship with the Creator you’ll never know if you can trust them to bring forth your good. Trust is another basic element of faith. If you do not believe or cannot trust that your Creator is loving and desires great things for you, you’ll be unable to place your trust in them. Without trust, you can only slip in and out of “I hope so” but you will never be able to stand on the solid foundation of “I know so.” Faith walking requires, “I know so.”
Start by asking for help, give thanks for the help received and then visualize yourself receiving what was requested
Begin this day by setting before yourself small tasks that you believe can be accomplished with help from the energetic realm but will have no negative consequences if they’re not. Things such as finding a closer parking space or receiving direction about which is the fastest moving line at checkout or even assistance so that you arrive when the light is green instead of red. None of these small accomplishments will cause harm and all of them will be a wonderful faith builder when they arrive. Now from your place of willingness begin to build your faith. Start by asking for help from the energetic realm, give thanks for the help received and then visualize yourself receiving whatever was requested. When it arrives make a big deal over what has happened. Get used to celebrating answered prayers but just let of of that which did not manifest. All will be added unto you when you become more willing to believe that it’s possible. But nothing can be given to you when you’re steeped in doubt. It’s important to remember that God is never holding out on you but you may be holding out on God.
You must be willing to partner with them by walking in faith and believing that everything is possible
God wants to give you the desires of your heart but you must be willing to partner with them by walking in faith and believing that everything is possible. Nothing is being withheld from you but your doubt may be preventing you from receiving your good. Stand up, stand strong, stand proud for all that you are, and open your heart to receive.
