3 Step Faith Formula

I am very fortunate to attend an excellent church. The worship is amazing, and the pastor’s messages are very relevant to life in today’s world. This in addition to the warm, welcoming environment that is felt inside the church.

I often talk about faith on this site, and felt the need to share some excellent information that my pastor provided about faith working in our lives. Based on His message, effective faith has the following qualities:

1. Faith sees the end – Many influential authors recommend seeing things from the end. See your goal realized. See the person you want to become. See yourself excelling at your job. When you visualize success, it helps develop the faith necessary to reach it.

2. Faith stays focused on the impossible – Just because you don’t see it in reality yet doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen. Your goal may be reached tomorrow. Or it may not be reached until a year or more from now. Regardless, have faith that God already has your situation worked out. Once again, visualize success and act as if it already exists. The truth is that it (or something better) already does exist as long as you believe.

3. Faith stays the course – One author called it “unwavering” faith. Keep your goal fixed in your mind. Take the steps you are guided to take. Then keep going until you get there, or you are pulled in a different direction. By the way, don’t panic if you are re-directed because it is always better than where you thought you needed to go. Regardless, never give up. Keep believing, and you will get there.

I find this faith formula extremely helpful. Not only that, but it is very do-able. Here’s what has helped me. Take the main areas of your life, such as personal, family, financial, career, health, and relationships. Then for each, write down (it is very helpful to have this recorded on paper) goals and affirmations for each. I write about two or three for each. Then see yourself succeeding in each area. Develop the necessary faith by following these guidelines noted above.

 I am seeing more success in my life each day. Are things perfect? No, but they are getting closer every day to the ideal life that I envision. Following these guidelines will help you get there too. Enjoy the blessings : )

      Thank you! I can’t take credit for coming up with this one as it was from my pastor’s message of the day during church service. I just paraphrased it. I will certainly let him know that his message has helped you and others beyond our church walls. I very much appreciate the comment : )
