Bank on Faith, not Facts – However Vital the latter are.

Disclaimer: Facts are important. I know that already – surely!

There are those moments that come into your life and smear mud on your dreams. You try to look forward to a great future but all you can see is fog and mist. Quite often, the facts are as clear as the Second Coming of Jesus (or is this a fact to all people already?) that you are on a road to failure, loss, and disappointment. But if you can call on your faith resources – and believe – you will see a difference in your life.


So, what is it that you want to do, be and have? Today, do not focus on the facts. Facts change and are never stable. It may be a fact that today there are some 8 billion on earth, but in 40 years to come, this will NOT be a FACT. It will have changed. Even your “facts” will change – those glaring “realities” about your health, finances, relationship, family, professionalism, job, or project you are working on. They will change. So, do not focus on them.

Instead, go to faith for what could be and what is possible – not what IS. What is may be discouraging but what is possible is beyond encouraging. Believe in God’s power to aid your progress, but also in your ability to move forward by His help. Believe in that dream and do not give up on it. Have faith. Believe – even if it does not make much sense to you today. We can please the Divine without faith. In the physical realm, facts are the in-thing. But in the possibility world – the world of spiritual realities that are more responsible for our success every day – faith is the master-key. Will you hold it and unlock your potential or keep on hanging on the thread of facts until it breaks and you lunge yourself into a pool of stress and disappointment?
Facts versus Faith
Yes. “Facts along the road to your future may show something contrary to what you dream about, but you can bank on faith to deliver results! Believe in your God’s capability, your life’s infinite ability, and your dream’s nobility.” So, regardless of what you see today, I want to also utilize faith to declare to you that: You are blessed. You are wonderfully and fearfully created. You are heavily endowed with great wisdom and understanding. You are not just ordinary: with the immortal extra in the mortal ordinary, you have become extra ordinary. You are no longer just a natural statistic; you are a supernatural phenomenon since the heavenly Super has found way into the earthly natural, formulating a supernatural being. You are a miracle. You are prosperous. You are royal. You are forward-moving. You are stronger than you have yet believed. You are blessed beyond. And today, maybe as a result of this post, my friend, you are INSPIRED BEYOND REPAIR.

Go back no longer to the province of facts. Enter now into the atmosphere of faith and soar with wings like eagles. You are not a chicken. You are an eagle. Fly now – higher.

    This is wonderful Samuel….. it got the better of me. After reading this, I popped out of my bed and immediately composed a song as I was admiring the new me right infront of my wadrobe mirror. I can make it….”.I have the faith….I can make it nomatter”, I asserted to my self. May God richly bless u with abundant wisdom…… I dont know about the rest but I need more of these


    1. Crispa, your response also got the better of me as I imagined the agility with which you jumped out of bed to express yourself through the song! How I long to see the lyrics and listen to the tune! Indeed, we need to confidently wither down the mountains of discouraging facts with the shovel of enduring faith. Thanks a lot for finding time to read this piece and leaving your much treasured feedback. You’re great and the world will soon “discover” you as you bravely step on its stage to do what your heart is urging you to do. Cheers!
