Our Influence + Faith & Priesthood
As we are literal children of our Heavenly Father and Mother, we too, as their children, can grow up to be like them. As such, we are Gods in the making, with their power and ability within us. As such, we, through their power and our faith and worthiness, can create things to be.
In our world, we see through our body’s physical eyes, the earthly things which are around us. Scripture tells us, all physical things are both physical and spiritual. The scripture states:
5 …all things were created spiritually before they were on earth. Moses 3:5
This means that every physical thing has its spiritual self, inside itself. However, there are spiritual things around us too, which must be considered.
This is where faith comes in. As stated before, everything is created spiritually before it is physically created. This means that through faith, word and deed, we can spiritually create things to be, through exercising our knowledge in Christ, and His will for our lives, under the direction of the Holy Spirit, and under the sanction of heaven, and it will be physically manifested.
Generally speaking, I can have faith in Christ that I will be successful in school, living according to his plan and will for my life, outlined in the words and works of the prophets, and implement through the direction and power of the Holy Spirit, my studies and all aspects of my life. I will then do as God directs and have success, according to the nature and ways of God and His desires.
As I trust in God and His help and aid, it is then created and realized, through the process of faith and action to achieve that goal. For faith, is righteous belief, put into action. Or in other words, creation.
