When we talk about faith, it’s often in the context of religion. Do a Google search and your results are biblical websites talking about our faith in God and “building a perfect faith”.
The truth is, one doesn’t need to be religious or even have a belief in a deity to have faith…so what is it exactly and how do we use it in our daily lives?
“Faith is not something we must acquire or develop. Faith is something we have by virtue of being alive” Iyanla Vanzant
There is power in Faith, it is what keeps us going.
Consider this: you practice faith every night when you go to sleep. You have faith that you will wake up in the morning, that the sun will rise, that you will keep breathing…true faith lies in our knowledge that the natural universe will continue to function, that there are natural, and Universal and Spiritual laws that are always in play. We use these laws to inform our daily lives, we automatically have faith in these laws.
So…what is there to build?
“Deepening” our faith simply means that we strive to understand ourselves more. According to Iyanla “when you know and understand the laws of the spiritual universe, you have faith that they will work on your behalf”
Understanding of the Universe, our Spirit and our place in the Universe, is a worthwhile endeavor and it turns out, a by-product of this study, is a discovery of the depths of your faith.
There are layers and layers to discover.
