Have Faith Part 2

IN LAST week’s column, I said “People with little faith normally settle for what is easy, common and usual though desperately in need of new result.
You can only think within the bounds of your faith. Unless you stretch your faith, the ability to reason remains static.

Our lives are and will always be as broad as the dimensions of our faith. However, it is important to know that faith, by nature has limitless bounds.
In other ways, though we mostly restrict its dimension by undermining its value, depending on its object, faith is inexhaustible.
Due to its inexhaustible nature, faith possesses the power to liberate from the suppression of ordinary life.
Faith makes life exciting because it leads to exploration of the mysteries of life that are beyond what we already know.
The liberating power of faith begins gets to work when individuals begin to realise that they were created for a unique purpose and for the benefit of others.
This realisation drives us to the pursuit of the God-given uniqueness even outside the ordinary life.
Notker Wolf in his book Faith can give us wings says, “My ordinary life ceases to be ordinary when I realise that God participates in shaping it and does not desire that I remain unchanged… Faith can evolve into life perspective with the power to set us free.”
We are as liberated as the extent of the exploration of our faith. This is true because it is only through faith that we can courageously step into the world of perceived impossibilities.
In Matthew 17:20 Jesus says, “…For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you” (ESV).
Moving mountains in the quotation simply mean the impossible shall become possible.
Therefore, the quotation implies that impossibilities will become possible if we have faith.
