What does faith mean to you? Do you have a faith, something or Someone greater than yourself to believe in? How do you define your faith?
The paradox of success is solved only when we view life through a Biblical lens. Several days ago, I asked why the paradox existed. Why fans, who love excellence in competitive sports enough to pay for the right to experience it, will not apply the same standards of excellence in their own competitive professions, even though others are paying for the right to experience it. The answer to the paradox is lack of belief in themselves and their purpose in life. They are beautiful people, with amazing potential, with great passion (we can see that at every sporting event), but missing out on their purpose in life, due to the faulty wiring at birth.
Blaise Pascal, the seventeenth century French
mathematician, philosopher, inventor, and all-around smart guy, once said, “There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made
known through Jesus.”
It is through our faith, our belief system, that we discover our purpose in life. And it is in walking out that purpose that the paradox of success resolves itself for us. It is my prayer you find your purpose, and unravel your paradox.
