  5. Emeasoba George:

    It takes spirit of faith for an impossibility to metamorphose into a possibility. It takes spirit of faith to acknowledge/believe in the existence/reality of the invisible i.e. God almighty. Also, it takes spirit of faith to believe undoubtedly that no mountain/obstacle is insurmountable. Likewise, it takes spirit of faith to acknowledge/believe that with God/time no goal/target/vision/aspiration/dream is unattainable/unachievable. Moreover, it takes the same spirit of faith to profess positivity even when negativity is imminent. Besides, it takes spirit of faith to live all through difficulty/hardship. Above all, whoever that bears the spirit of faith in him/her can't/won't say that he/she is done for/finished no matter his/her ordeal/predicament. In fact, spirit of faith does a lot in any life that it inhabits. So, if you lack it (spirit of faith) dare to quest/ask for it from God and do portray it outrightly when he (God) eventually endows you with it i.e. spirit of faith.
