Of all the things that people struggle with when considering following a religion, having to keep faith in the abstract and unseen forces of God is one of the toughest things that people have trouble grasping.
However, this unwavering faith in the influence of the Lord is largely responsible for the successful lives that many Christian families enjoy.
Still not convinced? Attend an evangelical prayer meeting such as the ones that SCOAN put on, as there are often stories of faith rewarded, and even miracles that occur at these shows.
Below, we will describe the things that make faith such a valuable ally in your daily life.
Thoughts create things
One of the most amazing things about faith is that it has the power to create the life that you desire. Similar to the law of attraction, what you focus on through your Christian faith expands.
If your mind is consumed with faithlessness and dark thoughts, dark circumstances will be thrust upon you eventually.
However, if you choose to believe in a prosperous and happy life, and you are unwavering in your faith, it is only a matter of time before you receive this beautiful dream in the physical plane.
It quiets your mind
There are many things in modern life that conspire to silence your belief in everything that is good and holy.
When you strengthen your faith and you hold on to it, it pushes out all the negative noise that would otherwise compromise your ability to live a happy and joyous life.
In many regards, prayer is similar to the Buddhist art of meditation. Have faith in its ability to create serenity in your inner being, and no chaotic occurrence in your life will shake your ability to live it in the way that you intend.
Decisions come easier
When you have faith in the Christian religion, the confusion of what to do in certain moral situations becomes much less complicated.
Instead of listening to a series of philosophers and trying to sort out which courses of action makes the most sense for you, there are a series of simple but pragmatic moral codes in the Bible that make it easier to make the difficult but necessary decisions in your life.
Some may bemoan this, but often the most appropriate choices are the ones that aren’t tied down by moral relativism.
It invites harmony into your life as you create it in the lives of others
Having faith in Christianity will implore you to help create serenity in the lives of others. This will have the effect of creating harmony in your own life, as there is no better way a person can improve their own inner mental health than to do good for those that can’t possibly repay the favor.
When you improve your own mental state, you make it easier to attract the things in your life which you desire, making this aspect of faith one that can multiply the results in your life rather than take them away, as some people are tempted to think.
