1t will be done to you according to your faith

Faith is one of my very favorite topics to write about or even to speak about. I could go hours giving examples of different manifestations that were made possible by nothing but faith or better yet teach and encourage someone else to grow their faith. And the best way to grow your faith is to use it , test your limits , attempt great things that without God they will surely fail and watch him surprise you.

I always encourage my friends and other people i come across to attempt something so great that alone failure is inevitable but then believe God to bring it to pass. It’s amazing how much God can do, if only you chose to believe.

What is faith ?

The oxford dictionary describes faith as ” complete trust or confidence in someone or something. ”

The sector of faith i want to discuss today is not faith in people or things but faith in God. People are human and therefore liable to fail , that’s why i prefer not to have too much faith in any human. God on the other hand is supreme and can be trusted.

I love to describe faith in the words of Martin Luther King and he says ,” Faith is a living , daring confidence in God’s grace , so sure and certain that the believer would stake his life on for a thousand times. This knowledge of and confidence in God’s grace makes men glad and bold and happy in dealing with God and with all creatures.”

Faith in God is one of the most beautiful and most rewarding virtues to possess. Imagine your dream life coming true right before your eyes. Imagine having everything you have ever dreamt about ; those beautiful kids and grand kids, that dream mansion, that business you are passionate about ,a career or job you look forward to building every single day. That phenomenal life could all be yours because you decided to believe .

It takes a certain level of faith to ask too.

You might be thinking am joking or quite optimistic because am only a girl but i promise you I’ve had the world throw it’s worst at me and still trusted God for better. And the beautiful thing with God is that he always comes through.

Doubt sees the obstacles, faith sees the way.

Doubt sees the darkest night, faith sees the brightest day.

Doubt dreads to take a step , faith soars on high.

Doubt questions who believes , faith answers “I do.”

The world is built by those who exercise their faith and are willing to face their darkest hours with courage ,those who take setbacks without losing hope.

Faith will keep you going

The dark nights and days will surely be there, it’s not like they won’t come because you only believe for the best. But faith will surely carry you through. Faith mostly comes alive during our bad days when we are confused about what’s next but we choose to create it and believe it in your minds and heart until it comes to pass.

You kind of tend to forget all the reasons it won’t work and believe the one reason it will.

I love how Albert Einstein puts it, ” If the facts don’t fit the theory, change the facts.”

You can totally build your faith to a point where you don’t need to believe what the doctor’s report says about your condition, or what your grades say about your intelligence and believe that which you feel in your heart to be true and hung on it until it does manifest.

You will get to a point so powerful that you will not notice all the negativity that’s around you. A point where that inner peace will put you in a separate and overwhelming world – a world where your wildest dreams do come true. Not because you are extraordinary or special , which of course you are , but because you chose to have faith and believe in God’s extravagant goodness to bless you.

Great faith is the product of great fights, great testimonies are the outcome of great tests and great triumph is only the outcome of great trials.

~Smith Wigglesworth

Faith is like a flashlight- that no matter how dark things seem to get, so long as you hold onto it it will help you find your way, maybe not immediately but inevitably.

Regret looks back, worry looks around, faith looks up . Great leaders are almost always people of great faith. Your life will shrink or expand in proportion to your faith.” ~ John Mason.

Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder , not obsess . Just breathe and have FAITH everything will work out for the best.

Smile and believe everything will work out for the best.

Prepare for what you pray for because sometimes the delay is your preparation.

I have heard people say , hope for the best and prepare for the worst. And forgive my opinion but this is the worst advice ever. I believe the simple formula behind faith is ask, believe , expect and receive. And i will get back to it in a moment . But to continue our previous discussion, if you prepare for the worst i believe that’s what you will get. You are certainly not ready to get that which your asking.

At the end of the day people who hope for the best and prepare for the worst are certainly glad they did , because for some reason they usually end up on the worst side .And sincerely i believe they caused all the trouble as they attracted the worst to themselves .

Having complete faith in God is something like hoping for the best and preparing for the best. Because you know deep know in your heart that your God will be there for you . He won’t dessert you. It’s like taking all your cards and stalking them on God and then praying for him to come through. It’s like behaving like he’s all you have . If he doesn’t come through for you , you are doomed. Having faith in God is relying on him like without him you can’t handle on your own.

Paul in his letter to James confirmed ,” Faith without actions is dead . Faith is action – never just a passive attitude.

What you believe in is what will work for you.

At the time of this writing, the world is estimated to have over 1000 distinct religions. All have different spiritualities and beliefs. Each and every believer knows there is a supreme, very powerful controlling force, or call it God, Allah, Buddha , Infinite intelligence, the Universe etc. And this controlling power is able to give them all they ever desire, anything and everything they wish for.

I’ve to realize that life can be somewhat meaningless unless one believes there is a controlling power bigger, and more powerful than themselves. Whatever and whoever you believe in is what will work for you. Be it the stars, moon , galaxy, Lord Krishna, God , Allah , the Universe , it will work for you . All you need to do is believe.

Whoever you believe in will work for you.

Each of the above mentioned forces has rules and laws , once you follow them you are always sure to get what you want. So long as it is in accordance with the universal laws not against them or in disagreement with them.

Lemme give you a small example here, for example if it is God that you believe in, your request can’t be something like God please give me that man’s wife and you expect it to come true. Because adultery is one of the things God hates. He would never give you something that disgusts him, something not after his own heart but your selfish desires.

And if it’s the universe you’re believing to work for you, you should probably check out these universal laws here and be sure your in agreement with them .

How to increase your faith

The best way to grow and increase your faith is by using it. Each time you believe in God or the Universe for something and it comes to pass, your faith will be greatly strengthened.

Here’s a simple formula that i highly recommend to get you well on your way.

Ask, believe, expect, receive.

This is a very simple formula like the ABC alphabet we learnt in nursery school , and am also sure that unless otherwise no one has forgotten to date. Likewise also always remember this formula .

  • Asking involves making a specific and straight forward request to GOD. You can as well write it down and put it somewhere you can always see it , just so that every time you see it , you feel grateful in your heart as though you have received it. Now if your new to the topic of asking you might be wondering why you should ask when your Father up in heaven knows everything you need.
A little girl asking from Allah.

Let me tell you this today and i hope you remember it all your life. God favors those who ask. He sure knows what we want but he wants us to sincerely ask him for it and he will grant it. It’s true that some blessings come to us automatically but blessings come in halves. There are blessings we must ask for . In the book of James, Paul said ,” You don’t have because you don’t ask.

In Matthew 7:7-8 , Jesus said, “Ask and you will receive, seek and you will find , knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks , receives, and he who seeks finds and to him who knows the door will be opened. “

If there’s something to gain and nothing to lose by asking, by all means ask !

~W.C Stone

Jim Rohn CONTINUED ,” Asking is the beginning of receiving. Make sure you don’t go the ocean with a teaspoon .At least take a bucket so the kids won’t laugh at you. “

For more about asking please check out my weekly podcast on asking here .

  • Believe: “If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you can’t , most assuredly you won’t . Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad.” – Denis Waitley.

After asking, the next part is believing. Believing involves surrendering your works, plans and everything into his(God)able arms and trusting him with no doubt in your heart to give you the best desired outcome. Faith roughly looks something like that.

You must first be a believer if you want to be an achiever.

John Mason (In his book The impossible is possible)

Believing will keep your mind hopeful despite all the reasons it won’t work and even when others tell you it can’t be done. Faith hangs onto the one reason it will. Be single minded, not double minded or triple minded, and this will give you a reason to keep going when times get tough.

Thou sometimes the answers to prayers may not come in ways we expect but we sure do must always receive the answers . And when the answer is a NO , it’s not a bad thing, either you deserve better or a YES would have done you more harm than good.

Am someone who God has been extravagantly good to , and yes he gives me Nos at times. But sometimes i just really can’t take a NO and keep praying until He turns it into a YES. Like there’s this one time i was praying to work in one of Uganda’s leading Hotels as a hostess. I had worked at some small place during the lockdown and i thought getting work at that hotel would be one a dream come true, something like hitting the jackpot.

Eight hours of work, more money in the bank , some spare time to do what i like and honestly i couldn’t think of anything else i really desired more at that time.

At my current job , the conditions were fair but sometimes especially on weekends we worked up to 12 to 16 hours , it was getting hectic for me. But the money was coming in just fine, but i had no life away from work . So i applied to that hotel and they dint get back to me in two months. (I figured later that this was God giving me a No , saying i deserved better. But how could i ever accept that a five star hotel employment wasn’t my portion)

Since i wanted this so bad , i decided to push for it a little more. I went over to the Human Resource Manager’s office and asked him why he hadn’t gotten back to me? Didn’t i qualify to work for them or they had no vacancies ? He said they had and told me to change my hair to black ( it was maroon at the time) buy a few black skirts and white long armed shirts . And once i was done , i could report for work. You can’t believe how excited i was , getting to attend to the Country’s richest people, politicians and other foreigners , i was so excited to enlarge my circle.

To cut the long story short, i get there , the pay was good, but i never settle for just good , the salary they were giving me i would make it in three to five good days days at my former work place. They had a great meals for staff ( but i figured i dint come here to eat food but to make money ) the clients or guests as they are called there were very few compared to what i expected, work was very boring, the tips were very few almost non existent , i just had to RUN for my life.

I worked there for one week, fell sick the second week ,and resumed for two weeks , all this time i was trying to tell myself that maybe God put me here to teach me tolerance. But i honestly couldn’t do it anymore. I worked there only three weeks and left , i made more losses than gains financially during my time there.

I have had many other experiences like this and from that time , i learnt to accept God’s NOs as meaning i deserve better , or something better is on the way. Today i pray to God and if it happens that’s great, if he says NO , still thank you Lord, let your will be done in my life. Life has taught me to have complete trust that God’s will for my life is ALWAYS BETTER than what i think is best for me. And that has let me have complete unwavering faith in him.

Faith in God means having him as your number one plan , and your only plan. You might be wondering and what happens when things don’t go like you expect? Here’s your answer , God will provide you will plan B , He will show you what way to take.

Faith in GOD means having in as your only plan.
Faith in God means having him as your Plan A, Plan B and your all. It’s either him on him. No one else your relying on .

Simply stand on His promises , keep calm , keep the faith and your sure to win.

  • Moving on to the next part in our formula , EXPECT.

Don’t just wish for something, prepare to receive it now. Please don’t bring doom until yourself by expecting the best and preparing for the worst as i guarantee you , you are sure to receive what your expecting – failure.

A great way to expect is to be and feel happy like what you want has already manifested. It’s like when you at a restaurant and you order a meal , you sure do know it’s coming , you may not be able to place your minute on the time it will arrive but you sure do know one thing, it’s coming. Same thing here . You need to act, speak, think, like what you want has already manifested.

Visualization creates powerful thoughts and feelings of having whatever you want now. The universe will then return what you pictured in your mind , as your life . ( you can use the aid of a vision board, writing down your desires and so many other ways.)

With faith you begin to see things that aren’t as thou they were.

And one more thing, you will never know how long you really have to wait , you just gotta be expectant, everything has a different gestation period. And at times results may hurry or delay depending on many factors like how positive and happy you are and your actions too. Don’t ask for a successful career and then report to work late, do half-baked work and not really give your work your best and expect to become successful at it. Your actions need to be in agreement with your requests .

Above all remember life is under obligation to give you want you expect . ALWAYS . All you have to do is prove yourself worthy – be expectantly grateful.

Be happy and  expectant.
Go on with your life in an expectant manner knowing whatever you want is sure to manifest.

And one more thing, expect more from yourself , and the Universe than other people because you can control your life but you can’t control other people’s lives and how they choose to treat you.

  • And here comes my best part, a message from the universe, ” Your order has been served.” Your wish has come true , receive what you asked for.

Receiving is always such a great joy, be happy and enjoy , and don’t forget to be grateful to the Universe .

Allow me leave you with these few takeaways on faith.

  • Faith courageously steps into the unknown with eyes closed to all negatives . It takes much greater faith, declarations, confessions to walk out of your convictions and begin to see results rather than stop at dreaming .
  • Real faith is absolutely reckless. No plan Bs, no what ifs, no How ? How is not your part to figure out ,it’s the Universe’s , God’s , Allah’s whoever it is your believing in.

This type of faith will make you look feeble , unreasonable in the eyes of the ‘ WORLD’ AND SOMETIMES in your own eyes too ,but yes it’s how daring it’s meant to be . You attempting something so big that on your own it’s impossible , and God falls into the equation and makes it possible. And when this happens, your faith is greatly increased.

  • Faith tries again the a hundredth time like it was just the first attempt. And faith comes alive most when we are confused about what’s next but we choose to create it and believe it.

And if you wanna be a David, be ready to face a Goliath.
