Merriam Webster defines Faith as ‘the strong belief or trust in something.’ My meditations and the spiritual books I’ve read made me realize that faith has the following four stages.
1. The Delivery Stage
In this phase, faith exists as an idea. An individual conceives an idea, believes in it, but does nothing about it.
2. The Devotion Stage
In this stage, an individual invests in his idea. For example, if you want to be a famous musician, you enter the devotion phase when you start spending most of your time singing and recording music, and if you wish to be a businessman, you enter the devotion phase when you invest money in your business idea.
Investing in your ideas shows that you have faith in them. Many individuals have beautiful ideas, but fail to execute them because they don’t invest in them. They fear wasting their resources thus implying that they don’t have faith in their ideas.
3. The Trials Stage
Here, you face obstacles that you can’t imagine overcoming. This stage tests your faith in yourself, your idea, and the Creator. You need great amounts of faith to pass this stage.
In the trials stage, you need to remember that your willpower is stronger than any obstacle and that it’s always darkest before the dawn.
4. The Generation Stage
Finally, in this stage, your faith pays off, and wonderful things begin occurring in your life because you get what you wanted.
Strive to know where you are in the phases of faith, and work on ascending to the higher stages. I love you all. May the Creator’s grace and love be with you.
