Faith In The Unseen
What is the definition of faith? According to the NWT of the Holy Scriptures, it is this:
“Faith is the assured expectation of things hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities though not beheld.”—Hebrews 11:1.
Much of the world is faithless whether it be in the spiritual sense or in the attempt at having faith in themselves or fellow humans. It is not tangible; no one on earth can give another faith. But, it is something that has the ability to grow like a seed within you, through meditating on the positive outcome of past negative experience. Or it can be learned, by taking note of others strong faith, seeing how it has been demonstrated in their lives and following that example.
Through my own many personal experiences, I have learned to have faith because in the spiritual sense our Creator has come through so many times, too numerous to count. At times when life seemed grim, and I knew of no way out, HE always came through for me. One recurring example of having faith and knowing that things would work out, was when I needed a certain monetary amount I would always get exactly what I needed. In fact, that scenario is playing out on a business level as I write this, the exact amount of $800 has come in at the right time to take care of my LLC business tax. Other things had to be maneuvered out of the way to have the money needed, (when it came in) this materialized in a way that I did not think, nor plan.
If you do not as yet have faith, do not fret or fear, all will work out, quite possibly even better than you could imagine or expect. And if you do… keep the faith!
