What is your belief based on?



How many times have you given up on a goal because you

believed it was impossible? How many times after overcoming that belief has

your goal been achieved? What made the difference in the two situations?

For many of us our belief is based on

what we see. It is easy to believe things we can contact with our senses. If I

can have a physical connection with something there is no question that it is

real. Usually the difficult thing is to believe something exists or is possible

if we can’t contact it. Our belief in the unseen is a property of faith and is

a matter of the mind and heart. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the

evidence of things not seen. That substance is the part we hold to knowing it

will occur or be achieved. We hold to these because things like them have

happened before and will again.

.5in;">Is our faith any different than

those of the past? The account of “doubting Thomas” in the Bible comes to mind.

Even though all the other disciples had seen Jesus after His resurrection

Thomas would not believe. He required physical contact but when he saw Jesus he

did believe. That’s when Jesus said that blessed are they that have not seen,

and yet have believed. This instance is no different than that of any inventor,

visionary, or entrepreneur that has ever lived. Each one had the faith to

believe something was possible and achievable though it had never been done

before. With faith and no physical proof to base their actions on they

continued to accomplish their goal

.5in;">In order to reach the position we

desire we must also change how we believe. We all must exercise the faith

required to continue striving for our goal. Everyone has had impossible things

happen in their lives without any explanation as to how or why. If those things

can happen once why do we think they won’t happen again?

.5in;">They only thing keeping us from

believing in the unseen future is our failure to remember our past and trusting

the truth we already know. Our faith will be strengthened if we will place the

emphasis on the “impossible” things we have seen in our lives instead of

doubting things will happen.
