What Ijah is saying is true. I will add some things. Through meditation and prayer, I and I build up our relationship with Jah. The better our relationship with Jah is, the more I and I will see from Jah.
To build up Faith, I and I need to resist and cast away doubt. So when I and I have Faith in something, I and I should resist the urge to doubt that it will happen. It can be hard to do this because we have been raised with doubt and lack of Faith. So in the beginning, the I might find yourself doubting more than having Faith. But as times goes on, and I and I Itinue to resist doubt, doubt will flee away and there will be much more Faith.
To resist doubt, I and I need to resist and stop the thought as it starts to rise. The sooner I and I resist, the closer I and I come to casting away doubts entirely. This is a process over time. Fasting builds up discipline in our mind, and cleans I and I vessel. This discipline to resist hunger, builds up I and I mental discipline in general. I and I can learn to resist hunger when necessary, resist sleep when necessary, and resist other things also.
In time, the I will gain more control over your own self, and be able to resist doubt in many situations, and eventually, if the I Faith is strong enough, the I will resist doubt in all situations. And the more the I resist doubt and build up Faith, the more evidence the I will see from Jah.
Also, when hard times come, I and I must not cast away Faith. Those are the times when Faith must be strongest, because only Jah can help I and I out of our troubles. People often lose their Faith when a little tribulation comes. But I and I are in Revelation time, the time of tribulation, so if I and I give up because of small tribulation, what will happen when the larger tribulation comes. I and I can look at tribulation as a result of our own lack of faith, and at the same time, a test to give I and I the opportunity to build up Faith.
When good times come, I and I must remember not to lose our Faith. I and I should give thanks to Jah for every single good thing that happens, no matter how small. All goodness comes from Jah, and Jah is worthy to be praised. Sometimes people can get swell headed in good times, and forget about Jah, these are the times where Jah will let I and I take care of our own self. Because Jah allows us to do what we choose, so if we choose to trust in our own vanity, instead of trusting in Jah, then Jah will let us see what our vanity can accomplish. And we will see that it is just vanity, and has no accomplishment.
The first thing to trod towards Faith is to choose Faith.
