Don't worry about tomorrow ;
it will have enough worries of its own
( Matthew 6 : 34 )


Faith is to believe that God the Creator wanted that we exist and He is very interested in us so He wants to give a meaning to our life. Faith is to admit that we have limit so we have to accept God's power
( F. Bailet )

Faith is not to jump into a hole but to do a step towards God. Faith is to give our hand to those who has already give hers to us by Love
( F. Bailet )


FAITH ( definition ) :

Faith sums up relations between men & God. Faith is to trust in God for ever & ever. Christian's Faith is based on testimonies (example the 12 Apostles, ...). You can read Hebrews 11, the chapter of the Bible which talks about Faith ; with many famous names to give us very good examples (such as : Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Rahab, Gideon, David, Samuel, etc.) This chapter begins by :




To have Faith

is to be sure of the things we hope for,
to be certain of the things we cannot see
( Hebrews 11 : 1 )



Faith is to believe that those who has created the universe wanted our existence.
That we interested Him and He wants to give signification to our life.
Faith is to admit man limit and to accept God's authority
( F. Bailet )



No one can please God without Faith, for whoever comes to God
must have Faith that God exists and rewards those who seek Him
( Hebrews 11 : 6 )



Those who follows sincerely faith way can do miracles
( Paulo Coelho )




By faith believer sees higher than events & troubles

( The Good Seed 2005 )

The Christian FAITH

The most important thing in Faith is confidence. But christians don't know to practise it in their life. When we realize that we sinned against God, the only solution is to ask His mercy. When we realize that there is no more solution to a problem, the unique thing to do is to call Jesus, our Saviour. This is Faith. This is the Faith. To have confidence in God is to wait His intervention in our life. To have confidence in God is to follow His instruction. To trust in someone is not Faith. We have to trust only in God and to put in His hands our future, our problems, our sorrow, our happiness, our family, our friends, etc. ... Only this act give us always carefree heart & peace through sufferances and tests. To have confidence in God is to say " yes " to Jesus. Those who wait the Lord receive power & ideas from Him to continue in the best way on doing something. Only Faith helps us to serve God and to look like Him. ( The Good Seed - September 04th 2003 )

You will keep him in perfect peace ... because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord for ever, because the Lord is the eternal Rock ( Isaiah 26 : 3, 4 )

So don't throw away your confidence ... You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised ( Hebrews 10 : 35, 36 )

Let's always talk about FAITH

Faith is simple,

But we have complicated it. Faith is just to trust, but we continue to discuss, we continue to judge God's words & God's acts. Christian's life begins & ends by Faith. We must keep up this life. Faith is large, but in general, it consists of many details than of miracles. For example, those in the letter to the Hebrews, chapter 11 :

- Faith talks ( Abel )
- Faith walks ( Enoch )
- Faith builds ( Noah )
- Faith listens to God ( Abraham )
- Faith sees the invisible ( Moses )
- Faith fights ( Gideon ), etc.

The believer trusts inside himself because of his good relations with God. ( The Good Seed - December 05th 2002 )

... The righteous will live by his Faith
( Habakkuk 2 : 4b )




Faith is like bird : it sings even if night is still dark

( Anonymous )




Faith believe in God through difficulties
& through impossibility too
( the Good Seed 2006 )



Faith greatest triumphs go together
with big bitter troubles
( Charles Spurgeon )




Your faith becomes strong after troubles.

With sufferances, we learn to know our
weakness and we learn too God's fidelity
( John N. Darby )




FAITH , conclusion

We have not to doubt about God's power & about God's love. He orders and we must obey such as Elijah ( 1 Kings 17 : 4 ), we must obey God without thinking, because we know that He always wants our happiness. The most important is to be where He wants. For a believer, it's to search Jesus, to hear His Voice, and to live with Him the experience of His acts.
( The Good Seed 2005 )

Let all the earth fear the Lord ... For He spoke, and it came to be ; He commanded, and it stood firm. The Lord foils the plans of the nations ; He thwarts the purpose of the people. But the plans of the Lord stand firm for ever, the purpose of His heart through all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He chose for His inheritance ! ( Psalm 33 : 8 - 12 )
