“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
There is so much power in faith: it allows you to look into the future and “see” the very things you are hoping for today. In fact, as this verse tells us, faith is evidence! Evidence defined: The available body of facts or information indicating whether a belief or proposition is true or valid.
Here are two ways to build faith. The first, and definitely the most important is that faith comes by hearing the Word of God. Reading the Bible out loud; or hearing the Bible is a powerful tool for building your faith. Make sure you include God’s Word in all of your business plans.
A second important ingredient in building a life of faith is to surround yourself with people of faith. This will build your walk of faith, and the opposite is true when you have the doubters feeding your mind with their words of failure.
Gunner Olsen, the founder of the International Christian Chamber of Commerce tells of time in his business where great loss was eminent. He says he had to send a family member away for a weekend golfing vacation so that he could surround himself with only people of faith. In his case, at the end of the weekend they saw a miracle in the business.
Surround yourself with people of faith; fill your mind with the Word of God; and watch your faith grow, your business be blessed and peace fill your soul.
