what is FAITH?

Discussion in 'Business and Finance' started by THALLON, Sep 13, 2014.

  1. Years ago, we were broke, as usual,
    my idea of obtaining wealth was gambling: horses, casino etc.
    we rented here and there, then the landlord would sell and we would move and rent somewhere else,
    I had a job, a second hand car I got a loan for, and a credit card,
    we had no money, maybe a hundred bucks.
    and I turned 40.
    So I was sad
    that I turned 40 and never had saved money, and gambled and wasted any type of savings,
    and sad that we did not have a house of our own,
    it was just a treadmill of credit card debt.
    And there was no relatives or friends to help or give us a big bundle of cash.
    So I prayed. [and I remember it]
    God, I can do nothing, have mercy on me, if you don't do something to bless me
    NO one on earth will
    within a year we had a house,
    then we sold and we had a new car paid for with cash,
    then we moved to another house and we paid that second house off after only ten years.

    God is a real God,

    now a lot of those things that happened were
    circumstantial coincidences over which I had no control, and certainly no
    foresight that they would occur or were occurring.
    they weren't money falling out of the sky or someone walking up to me on the street
    and handing me a bag of money.
    Did I have FAITH?,

    well frankly the only faith I had was to beg God who I believed in to help me, and actually I probably didn't
    even believe He would help, so in essence I simply Believed God as being God and hearing.
    He had to do the rest.

    I think I prayed from my heart and that is the difference to praying with your head.
    The Word or nothing likes this.
  2. Yes, the purest prayer is when we are at the end of our rope and our back is against a wall, with only ONE remaining option; that is The LORD.

    Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
    Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
  3. Faith is just believeing what God says in the word. And God was faithfull to you and that is what God is.

    But better to know the word and you can quote it to God. Lord you word says. So thank you I am blessed. Thank you you love me. and bless me.
    Romans 4:17 calleth those things which be not as though they were.
    Matt 17:11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

    Jer 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
  4. Well i think faith is nothing it is the trust in god. like, If you can achieve the faith of any one than you are the best one for him/her.
  5. I find a lot of my 'trust' in God is just plain ignorance of God, I did that for a long time, just live life and pray a religious prayer to the God out there...somewhere.
    these days I like to talk to God like He is a real being who is listening, and talk means discuss and argue my case,
    and God is here, I mean as I write, and as you listen and think, He looks into our hearts, our motivations, our intentions.
