3 Characteristics of Faith

The heroes of faith, overcame battles, challenges and went against the odds!…Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Elijah, Gideon, Daniel, David, etc…are just few of the all examples we have got in the Holy Scriptures. All of them had 3 things in common!…They were “Blind”, “Deaf” and “Numbed”. I’m not speaking physically wise rather spiritually.

Bear with me.

If you want to succeed you have to be just like that:

1st- Blind for the circumstances around you. When one wants to conquer something doesn’t matter the adversities, setbacks, etc…You just keep going. Please see the post of the Rule of faith.

2nd- Deaf for the negativity all around you, either by what people say or by the words that come to your mind, doubts, fears, etc…

3rd- Numbed to emotions and feelings. One has to live by faith, meaning, believing in the invisible so that the visible may come to pass.

Hebrews 11:32-34

New King James Version (NKJV)

32 And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jephthah, also of David and Samuel and the prophets: 33 who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises,  stopped the mouths of lions, 34 quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

    Yes pastor i agree with you i found that being myself includes taking risks with myself in my faith, on new behavior, trying new ways of being myself in my faith so that i can see who am i and want to be before god.
