Allo Allo Allo =] I’m Back Again With Another Value Of Faith, I Hope This Series Has Been Enlightening U All…
To be in faith is to be sincere with yourself, God and others, especially when it comes to acknowledging your mistakes or asking for help.
To put in to perspective, to be in faith is to eliminate the feelings of fear, doubts, angers, grudge, worries etc… and hold tight onto courage, belief, happiness, forgiveness and certainty. It’s easier said than done but it is possible, just ask anyone who is successful in their respective field of work.
So relating it to God, always remember what it says in the Holy Bible:
“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 NKJV
Faith has everything to do with reason, with emotions following behind (not leading, but following). We have learnt that the 1st attribute of faith is A Good Conscience, the 2nd attribute is Honesty, the 3rd attribute being Justice and the 4th attribute being Truth.
And now the 5th attribute is:
Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the Lord! Joshua 24:14 NKJV
Sincerity is a key attribute of faith. It take a lot of courage and strength to not put on a front (especially nowadays) but be transparent with God, yourself and people in general.
The majority of people nowadays are trying so hard to portray themselves as “perfect” on social media, to family, friends, colleagues etc… that they forget that no one can and will be perfect.
“I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.” Jeremiah 17:10 NKJV
You may be able to deceive people for awhile (keyword AWHILE) but you cannot deceive yourself, and especially not God who knows your inner most feelings and thoughts.
And just like the Lord Jesus said:
For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light. Luke 8:17 NKJV
When a person is sincere, it is very hard for anyone and the devil to embarrass or accuse them, as they are transparent. Why not use your reason and please God by being sincere with yourself, with Him and with people.
