Faith, one of the most talked about words all over the world! Most people can quote the famous Hebrew 11: 1. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen, like their address or birth date, yet when ask how do you know that you have “True Faith”, they began to tell you things like, well I love God, or I can’t see Jesus, but I trust Him! However, neither of the two mentioned statements truly determines if one has “True Faith”!
So how do you really know for certain if you have “True Faith”? Are there any sure-fire signs that can be witness by others or by one’s self? Well, I am glad these questions have been asked, because the answer is yes! First, I must say this, that “True Faith” is an ever-growing power and should be continuously prayed for on a regular basis, if not daily! Try saying this “Lord please increase my Faith”, and sincerely mean it!
So here are a few tell-tell signs that you and others can be absolutely certain that one definitely has “True Faith”! Our world appears to be totally out of control, and yet, you wake up happy, and looking forward to all seeing the beauty of the day unfold! So, many are being killed, and you are not afraid to move about and enjoy life freely, because you have faith the God will shield and protect you! Matter-of-fact, you have come to say things like, “I don’t have to worry about anything, because I had a talk with God and He promise to work everything out for the good of those who love Him, I am going to sleep! 2. You began to quote statements like, I don’t care how things look right now, God can do anything, and nothing will make you change your mind! 3. You have become a witness for God, in the name of Jesus, that there is no failure in God, and everything is already alright! 4. Even though death has knocked on your love one’s door, you can truly say, I know that God will see me through! 5. You stop believing and come to know that according to God’s Will all shall manifest. 6. Every single day you have joy and a smile on your face because you know what God can do! 7. You have tried your faith and found out that it works, and nothing can make you doubt it! 8. True Faith has taught you how to consult God on all things! 9. You at Peace regardless of what is going on!
Sure, I could go on and on, because “True Faith” is never ending! I do hope that what I have written, has also helped you determine if you have “True Faith”, or if the faith that you do have needs to be fine-tuned by seeking the word of God and developing you’re relationship with Him!
