5 Reasons Why Having Faith Is so Important

We all have moments in life where we feel like there is no end to the tunnel of hopelessness. We feel so resented and pained, that no one’s presence, not even of our closest peers, makes us feel any better. But even in such moments, if something keeps us going, that is our faith in the almighty. That is how strong the bond of faith is between a devotee and the almighty!

No wonder why almost all individuals in the world follow one or the other faith. In fact, as per statistics, in a world of 7.8 billion people, only 450-500 million people choose atheism! So, why is following a faith deeply necessary? Let’s dig a bit deeper:

1. It Gives You Unparalleled Strength

We all know, God is everywhere, yet nowhere. He has no physical existence. We keep searching for Him in inanimate objects around us – from clay idols to framed pictures. But, isn’t it strange how we feel a tinge of utmost peace and calmness by relying on something that apparently has no physical presence!

And even in its absence, our strong faith in the supreme force gives us unparalleled strength to combat insurmountable pain. Many times, money, fame, and power fail to fetch us what we really desire. But our faith gives us the strength to keep striving for that one thing until we achieve it.

2. It Gives You Perspective

Like mentioned earlier, there are a total of 7.8 billion people in the world. This also means we have 7.8 billion opinions floating around us. Now, this is only possible that two persons may not have the same perspective towards the same thing. While you feel a certain thing is virtuous, it might not always be so.

But then again, we all are just humans. We have both good and bad habituating within us. So, who really gets to decide what is wrong and what is right, when we all are a little bit of wrong and right admixed?

Well, to say that following a faith makes you and your perspective superior and more righteous than the rest would be a gross overstatement. But it is true that following the path of spirituality does provide you with a perspective that allows you to determine the wrongs and the rights.

3. The Purpose for Your Being

Faith and spirituality – these are two of the most invaluable essences of human life. Tune in deeper – what is the exact difference between us and animals? Both of us breathe, eat, breed, and stay alive.

But the bigger picture that separates us from those beings is that we are blessed with the ability to find the ultimate purpose for our existence, which is not merely to die one day.

Channeling our inner spirituality and connecting with the Universe and the almighty awakens us in ways you, I cannot explain. That is why going to temples, churches like Planetshakers Church, mosques, and following a faith is important – to understand why you exist!

4. Makes You a Better Human

We have both, the devil and the angel, thriving inside us. Understand – even the most grotesque and barbaric of crimes are committed by a human being like you and me. So, what triggers them? What brings out the animal in them? The lack of compassion and empathy.

One of the most powerful weapons that faith arms us with is the sense of sensibility. It makes sure the devil loses to the angel within, every time.

5. It Gives You Hope

Last but never least, faith gives us unfaltering hope. Just when life seems too morbid to continue with, a little sense of faith in something that we know is equally there for all, gives us hope. Two religions might name their Gods differently.

But God is one, after all. He is as much yours as He is for others. And this very realization gives us hope to continue our journey on this earth.

Over to You…

Whether to follow a faith or not is solely the personal choice of an individual. But the fact that having faith has its own set of benefits cannot be denied. Here, we cited the 5 reasons why having faith is so important. There are certainly many more, that you will only understand by having one.
