Ever tried to solve a Rubik’s cube?

With some 43 quintillion options, they can easily have you giving up in confusion!

Trying to get your life in order can sometimes seem a lot like trying to solve a Rubik’s cube. For many people, trying to get their family life and relationships, work, finances, health, leisure, spiritual and other areas into order only brings frustration.

But there are mathematical laws make the Rubik’s cube work.

So it is with life. These laws are Principles. Learn them. Live by them.

Remember – God is not a respecter of persons:

Romans 2:11 (NLT) For God does not show favouritism.

God doesn’t treat us differently depending on our background or standing in society.

So what does God respect? God respects Principle.

Your outcomes from this next decade will be the sum total of the principles you build on.

Change takes time. It requires going through different seasons. Building character takes a lifetime – so does building principles into our lives.

You can prophesy your future by the principles you live by.

What are ‘Life Principles’?

  • They act as the guide to our actions.
  • They help us make decisions.
  • Principles are different from desires, experiences or emotions. They are the non-negotiable, unconditional laws which govern our life.

So let’s take a quick look at the principle of Faith – not just as ‘faith in the impossible’ or ‘faith in God’ – but faith in a more general sense.

Your faith is the centrepoint of your life. It is the DNA of who you are.

It relates to:

  • Your soul
  • Your spiritual life
  • Your morals, and values
  • Your relationship with God
  • Your Biblical convictions
  • Your Christianity
