02 Dec 4 STEPS TO FREEDOM: Part 1 of 4 – Faith
What are you willing to do to get what you want out of life?
What are you willing to give to get God-sized results?
Now that we have what you’re willing to do and get on the table, what if they’re NOT?
Before you begin to worry or get discouraged, let me reassure you.
YOU CAN GET WHAT YOU WANT OUT OF LIFE AND OBTAIN GOD-SIZED RESULTS!
And the 4 STEPS TO FREEDOM, 4-Part Series purposes to tell you how.
THE IDEA OF FREEDOM
The idea of Freedom is only as limited as your imaginations.
Despite societal impositions (like workplace performance or academics), you must have FAITH to make it through your days.
My definition of FREEDOM is being able to do what you want, with whom you want, where you want, when you want, and how you want.
FREEDOM is living your life on purpose (meaning consciously and deliberately making righteous decisions that produce-life, love, and happiness).
FREEDOM is living life with purpose (meaning you’re walking in your divine calling, ministry, or objective) and being a testimony to and for others.
THE FIRST STEP TO FREEDOM
FAITH is the first step to the perfect formula for ridding your mind and body of worldly troubles.
But what is FAITH and how do you get it?
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1
If FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, then it is physical matter.
This matter takes up anatomical space in your brain; in the form of thoughts and ideas. And according to biology, quantum physics, neural-endocrinology, epigenetics, brain plasticity, and other scientific disciplines, you and your thoughts are energy!
If FAITH is the evidence of things unseen, it is proof (the visible display) of one’s belief.
Belief, is acceptance that something is true. So, FAITH is a trust that manifests in thoughts and ideas that eventually dictate what you say, feel, and do.
FAITH is something you have, and it cancels out stress!
Because stress is a state of mind (mental or emotional in nature), it is a learned behavior.
No one is born with stress; anxiety, worry, doubt, fear, hate, etc. Stress affects us only as much as our minds allow.
FAITH is a trust and confidence in the Most-High and Sovereign Creator that can be developed and matured. When this occurs, you can see the perfect part of yourself that is the highest expression of Divine Peace, Eternal Perfection, and Unfathomable Purity.
FAITH is accepting the Truth about who you truly are; your true identity, as purposed by the Infinite Creator.
FAITH is accepting your divine right to the inheritance and promises that are yours by birthright.
WHAT TO DO NEXT?
There is a myriad of ways you can develop your FAITH without spending a massive amount of out of your day. You can start with the 3 listed below.
- Appreciate the Creation
The diverse ecosystem and nature of our world and how perfectly we can thrive in it are enough reason for you to appreciate it!
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse…
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Psalm 19:1
Ponder over the marvel of the Master Creator.
- Remember Your Blessings
An excellent way to develop your FAITH is by remembering the countless blessings that you have been given.
And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son’s son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that ye may know how that I am the LORD. Exodus 10:2
Remembering will help you become un-phased by the stresses of life. It will help you to build a more conscious and righteous thought life while building character.
- Assessing the Kingdom Within
Have you ever wondered how some people are enthusiastic about life or how everything in someone’s life just seem to be working in their favor, all the time?
Well, these people, probably, have accessed the very Kingdom of God within.
And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand. Luke 8:10
Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. Luke 17:21
Remember your blessings (past and present) while you anticipate future blessings. Unlock your spirit within to be patient and, not only, persevere, but overcome!
Faith is what you have – Believe is what you do!
Step 1 of the 4 STEPS TO FREEDOM is FAITH.
You already have it, it just needs to continue to develop and mature.
Appreciate life and the creation that surrounds you each day.
Remember the blessings you’ve received while you await more to come.
Access the Kingdom of God by accepting the Truth, in your very mind and body.
When you do this, you are one step closer to re-creating your life, rejuvenating your relationships, reinvigorating your overall wellness, and reclaiming your divine inheritance.
