Just this evening, I heard a whispering in my ear to pull out the good ol’ Angel Wisdom book. And whaddya know? Today’s topic just to magically happens to be one that has been faithfully reoccurring in my life as of late ;)
An Angel Reminder: “Faith is the state of being ultimately concerned… and the acceptance of the promise of ultimate fulfillment.”- Paul Tillich
Many of us don’t understand what faith is, confusing it with belief or with rigid adherence to religious doctrine. But faith goes far beyond concept or definition; it is an experience— a calling, in fact— that takes us out of the realm of intellect and into the realm of inner knowing. When theologian and philosopher Paul Tillich speaks of faith as “ultimate concern,” he is talking about the think that is of all-consuming value to a human being, the object of his or her spiritual passion, the thing that produces “the centered movement of the whole personality to something of ultimate meaning and significance.” Whatever we have faith in, we put our energy and commitment into. If you have faith that you will lose weight, you will direct your energy toward that goal, knowing that you will meet it. If the angels and living an angelic life are your ultimate concern, you will direct your energy towards that purpose, not fearing disillusionment but expecting fulfillment.
What are your ultimate concerns? In what area would you like your faith to be strong? Clarify your desires and what you want out of life. Then use your imagination to visualize the fulfillment of these desires, and practice the art of effortless knowing, asking the angels to help you cast out doubts and worries and keep you filled with clarity, positive energy, and commitment.
An Angelic Reflection: I have faith in divine love and wisdom, and I trust the angels to connect me to it.
