Good Evening Mate! And I’m Back Again With Another Attribute Of Faith. I Hope From These Series Of Posts, You Are Actually Using Ur Faith In God & To Achieve Ur Goals. If Not, Start Right After This Post…
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 is Justice, the 4th attribute is Truth, the 5th attribute is Sincerity, the 6th attribute is Faithfulness and the 7th attribute is Honour.
If you haven’t got it from the title already, the 8th attribute is:
He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city. Proverbs 16:32 NKJV
To be disciplined is a conscious decision and act. It requires the person to ignore the screaming noise of the heart and listen to the quiet but assertive voice of the mind. It demands the person to fight against the pressure of the feelings at that moment and think about the rational route.
We have all experienced a moment in life when we had to decide to either be disciplined or reckless, and unfortunately, the majority of us (including myself) chose to be reckless and irrational. King Solomon, inspired by the Holy Spirit, tell us that the person with self discipline is greater than the mighty.
Why is that? because it’s easy to be reckless and irrational, it’s easy to live by how we feel. It’s hard to think when the pressures of the heart activates, it’s hard not to feed those feelings. However, if you can resist and decide to be disciplined, your are living by faith, and through that, pleasing God.
Rule & subdue your heart; or else you’ll be a slave to it and be no different to an animal. Discipline is the bridge between goal and accomplishment.
