"For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it;
For it will certainly come, it will not delay." Habakkuk 2:3
I'm sure you've probably heard the phrase "fake it 'til you make it." Most people take this statement to say that you have to pretend to be successful before you actually become successful. Unfortunately, many people use this as an excuse to make poor financial decisions to look the part of a lifestyle they have not yet achieved, which actually creates more challenges for them to get to where they want to be. While I believe the scripture that tells us, "speak those things that are not as though they were," God doesn't want you to fake success to impress people that don't really care about you anyway.
Your faith is the key to your ultimate success - not pretending to have progressed further than you really have. Even if it's baby steps, you must trust that every move made in faith will bring beneficial results. Although it may seem like your efforts may initially seem menial, they are building a powerful momentum.

The beautiful thing about faith is that as you move forward in what God called you to do, He equips and empowers you to accomplish more. Greater dimensions of grace are released to you when you take great steps of faith. His grace supplies you with the power to overcome every obstacle that is placed in front of you. His grace also sustains you with the endurance to persevere successfully.
Your faith is one of the most valuable possessions that you have. It's what will build a bridge from dream to reality, from concept to completion. So if you're in danger of losing your confidence remember these powerful words from Hebrews 10:35-39...
"So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For, “In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.”And,
So keep moving forward and faith it until you make it!
