The Fundamentals of Faith Create Endless Possibilities


When you understand the fundamentals of faith, you create endless possibilities and increase your faith. It is quintessential to pleasing God. Every Christian should know that faith comes by hearing, and hearing or understanding comes from the word of God (Romans 10:17). Christianity’s foundation is built on faith. When we properly learn faith basics, they create unlimited possibilities for the believer. Faith is a particular and necessary part of worshiping God. Without faith, it is impossible to please God. Whoever goes to God must first believe that He exists (Hebrews 11:6). Science cannot prove God’s existence. Therefore, the only way we know God exists is by faith. To see the attributes of God, all one has to do is observe the heavens, for they declare His glory.

What Is Faith

Faith is not a force or a feeling; faith is a spiritual substance. It is your greatest and most valuable asset in the spiritual world. Faith is the bridge that links you to the spiritual realm and makes God a touchable reality in your mind. You must be confident that God and the unseen world are real. When you believe the word of God, your faith creates endless possibilities in the spiritual realm that will manifest as reality. You cannot know God on a personal level without it.

Without faith, you cannot pray effectively, nor can you take hold of the many blessings that God has appointed for you. If you do not possess the fundamentals of faith, you are like a dead fish floating down the stream of life, and that means that you will be a victim rather than the victor of your circumstances.

Understanding the Fundamentals of Faith

It is important to learn how to increase your faith. We live in perilous times. People everywhere are discouraged. No sooner than we overcome this, we have to deal with that. Coronavirus is perhaps one of the greatest pandemics the world has ever seen. The virus has taken the lives of loved ones. Many people are jobless, and many others have lost hope. People are fearful, and some wonder, “Where is God?”

With so many denominations in Christianity, the average Christian’s view of God and their understanding of how faith works is divided. Some Christians define faith as a strong feeling. Others define it as a strong belief. Other believers define faith as having hope.

So exactly what is faith, and how do we collectively understand the fundamentals of our faith in God? Faith is a firm conviction that produces a full acknowledgment of God’s revelation of truth. Faith creates endless possibilities. It gives way to a personal surrender to God. Faith’s conduct inspires such surrender. There are two levels of faith: little faith and great faith.

Little Faith

There is a distinct difference between little faith and great faith. Little faith believes until doubt comes. Peter displayed great faith when he walked on the sea. However, when he heard the boisterous wind, he was afraid, and he began sinking (Matthew 14:22-32). One of the fundamentals of faith is to learn to keep your focus on God. Peter was distracted by the sound of the wind, and he became fearful, causing him to doubt.

Great Faith

Great faith relentlessly trusts God in every situation and under any circumstance. To develop great faith, you must learn to trust God rather than trust your emotions. Possessing the fundamentals of faith has nothing to do with the physical senses. “I will believe it when I see it” is not the attitude of faith. You must “believe it before you see it” to have supernatural results.

Salvation Is Fundamental to Believing God

Faith comes by hearing, and hearing comes by the Word of God (Romans 10:17). In other words, faith comes by hearing, and hearing, and hearing, and hearing, and hearing the Word of God. The implication here is that faith does not come by having heard the Word of God, but rather by continually hearing the Word of God. The more you hear the Word of God, the greater your faith will be.

As it relates to the fundamentals of faith, it is important to know that salvation comes through faith in Jesus Christ alone.

No amount of work can earn salvation. We stand justified before God only by faith in Jesus Christ; nothing else can save us from the wrath of God. Every Christian must learn to possess faith. Throughout life, you will consistently use faith in your daily battle against the spiritual forces of darkness.

The Definition of Salvation

The first thing to come to my mind at the mention of salvation is deliverance from hell. That is until I researched the word salvation. We have long associated salvation with being saved from hell. In the Bible, salvation is translated as Soteria (so-tay-ree’-ah) and it covers a wide spectrum of deliverance, including healing. Salvation is the spiritual and eternal deliverance granted immediately by God to those who accept His conditions of repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus (Acts 4:12).

Having Confidence in God Creates Endless Possibilities

You say you have faith, but do you understand the fundamentals of faith just because you believe? Will the dead rise because you believe, or do they rise because you believe God said they would rise? Do not deceive yourself. Faith produces interminable results, but only when you base your faith on the word of God.

I recall the story of a young man who was addicted to crack cocaine. Before his addiction, this young man was a church-going believer. Over time, his addiction took control of his life. Eventually, he lost everything that he held dear. His wife, his children, his home; all became casualties of his crack addiction. The only thing he did not lose was his faith in God. He kept listening to the word of God, praying and believing that God would deliver him from his addiction. It took twelve years, but God visited him and gave him back his dignity. That young man was me. I had finally learned the recipe for faith.

Against all odds, I believed God would deliver me, and He did. God gave me a second chance at life. I am a living witness that faith in God produces results. Whatever you are dealing with, know that your faith in God is your greatest asset. Faith produces endless possibilities. Nothing is impossible for you when you trust God.

Greetings in Jesus ‘ name

“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” Jeremiah 33:3

Prayer is fellowship with the Unseen and Most Holy God. It is the essence of true religion and the channel of all blessings. It is the secret of power and life not only for ourselves, but for others, for the Church and for the world. God has given the right to take hold of Him and His strength to prayer. The promises wait for their fulfillment.
If you ask, He will be delighted to take you to closer fellowship with Himself and teach you to pray.

Recovery From Emotional/Psychological Trauma

Emotional trauma is the result of stressful events that shatter your sense of security, making you feel helpless in a dangerous world; it can leave you struggling with memories and anxiety that won’t go away.
Emotional/psychological trauma could be caused by accident, injury, an unexpected violent attack, living in a neighboring known for crime, battling a life threatening illness; it could also be as a result of experiencing traumatic events that occur repeatedly like domestic violence, sexual abuse, bullying, loneliness, and addiction. It could also be caused by the sudden death of a loved one or deeply disappointing experience.

What are the symptoms of trauma?
*Anxiety and panic attacks; anger and irritability
*Fear, emotional numbing,depression and confusion
*Racing heart beats, mood swings, muscle tension and agitation
*Shame, guilt, feelings of sadness and hopelessness
*Fatigue, feeling of worthlessness, withdrawing from people.
*Ache and pains, obsessions and feeling of being overwhelmed.

What do you do to recover from emotional trauma?
1. Don’t isolate: Make an effort to maintain your relationships and avoid spending too much time alone
2. You don’t have to talk about the trauma all the time
3. Participate in social activities.
4. Join a support group for trauma survivors: connecting with them help reduce the sense of isolation; and hearing how others cope could help in your own recovery.
5. Volunteer to help others: In fact, this is a great way to challenge the sense of hopelessness that often accompanies trauma. Remind yourself of your strengths and reclaim your sense of power by helping others.
6. Make new friends if you live far away from family and friends; and avoid toxic people.
7. Self regulate your nervous system: No matter how agitated, nervous, or out of control you feel; it’s important you know that you can calm yourself.
8. Take care of your health
9. Get plenty of sleep
10. Avoid alcohol and drugs as their use can worsen your trauma symptoms, and increase feelings of depression, anxiety and isolation.
11. Eat a well balanced diet to keep your energy up and minimize mood swings.
12. Reduce stress by relaxation techniques such as meditation, deep breathing exercises and schedule time for activities that bring joy to you such as your favorite hobbies.
13. Forgive all hurts and forget the past as this can also worsen the symptoms.

Recovery from trauma takes time, and everyone heals differently. So, avoid being negative or hard on yourself.

Beyond all the tips mentioned above, is the power of God to heal your broken heart and mend your broken life in Jesus’ name.

“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
But, for you to be healed with His stripes, you need to be reconciled with Him.
Jesus is the only Mediator between God and man; and you can only be reconciled to God if you believe in Jesus; in what He accomplished on your behalf. What did He do? He, being the Son of God and the Mediator between you and God, paid the price of your iniquities(sin) by leaving His abode in Heaven, became flesh, at the appointed time, He was betrayed, crucified, died and was buried; but He rose on the third day granting victory to whoever believes in Him. He was sinless but He tasted death for you and me. He paid the ultimate price to grant us access to the Father and to His Kingdom because no one can access the Father without Him.
He says : “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no man cometh to the Father but by me.” John 14:6
We can’t access God’s Kingdom with good works, morals and religious activities alone; they are not enough to save your soul and reconcile you with your Maker, because it is written: “For all have sinned, and have come short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23
So, you simply need to believe in Jesus, repent of your sin, and be saved
“Whosoever call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved”
Talk to Him and He will heal you.
