Believing Without Seeing
Walking by faith and not by sight may not seem to make sense. But in reality this is the essence of life filled with hope, life and joy. Often what we see is an illusion, a snap shot of success; absent of the hard work, dedication and faith it took to create the success we witness.
Faith is taking the first step and continuing to stay on that path without seeing the reward
Commitment takes faith and faith requires commitment. It's impossible to do anything without committing to it. Everything I have done in my life has required me to commit, start doing the work, when I did not see the result or picture perfect success.
Why is Faith Important
I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. - Matthew 17:20
The Good in the World - This is Why is Faith Important
As children, we used to see things with such hope and optimism. It wasn't difficult to have faith. But as we grow, we experience life and disappointments, and hoping for things that appear out of reach can feel childish.
Faith is the thing that keeps you moving towards those things that are good, that cause you to keep going when nothing else will. Faith is simply to trust in those things you cannot see nor touch but that you believe will come true. Faith is the opposite of fear, as faith hopes for the best outcome.
Innovation Requires Faith - Why is Faith Important
Great athletic feats, great music, art and outstanding accomplishments are all results of some magnificent dream that someone had to see beyond their current reality. Living by faith is simply not relying on your sight. If people reached for only the things that could see the world would lack progression and creativity. The fact that people reach for the unseen is why the world is so beautiful.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. - Hebrews 11:1
