What to do When Losing Faith in God (20 Uncommon Keys) – 2


what to do when losing faith in God


The necessity of faith

In the previous article, I explained faith and shared some experiences in the prayer camp. I also gave some notable personalities who lost faith in their walk with God. Furthermore, I gave seven profound keys you can employ when losing faith.


In this article, I dive deeper. Faith is a necessity in our journey of life. Almost everything we do in life demands faith. Talk about the food we buy outside the home. We don’t know who prepared it.


We don’t know whether the person has poisoned the food or not. We don’t know if the person preparing the food is infected with strange diseases. However, we consume those foods by faith. Even when we go to bed, we plan for the next day. That’s faith because we believe we will rise the next day (I hope you know people die while asleep).


We need faith to transact business. We don’t know the person we transact business with. However, we believe that the person will be fair. Talk of technology. Without faith, we cannot transact business globally.


Talk about the people we choose as marriage partners. We don’t know them. However, we believe them. That’s faith. Talk about the people we follow as mentors, leaders, and spiritual guides. If you don’t have faith, you will not choose them because you don’t know them.


As stated, life is a seed of faith. If you don’t have faith, you cannot do anything. We need natural faith to become the vessels God has made us. What do you think will make a person live with an animal?


Animals such as lions, tigers, dogs, and cats can kill human beings. However, we train and make them friends. That’s natural faith. It is said that a man with hope can last for a season. However, a man without hope is a living dead.


We derive hope from faith. Therefore, a man without faith does not have hope. Faith gives substance to our hope. For instance, I have the hope that I will make it to Heaven when Christ Jesus comes or when I die.


Maybe I will ascend to Heaven like Enoch. Because of my hope (faith), I have surrendered my life to Christ Jesus. I don’t only want to make it to Heaven. I also want to get treasures in Heaven (the new earth)!


Because of this reason, I work wholeheartedly in the Kingdom of God. I occasionally win souls for Christ Jesus. I intercede and sacrifice my time, money, and energy to write books and articles that draw people to God (the Holy Spirit).


By God’s grace, I do many things to increase my treasures in Heaven (the new earth). Although I have not physically seen my treasures in Heaven, I believe Christ Jesus is preparing my mansion! Faith does a lot in our lives. Before sharing with you what to do when losing faith, let me share six dangers of losing faith. Knowing these truths will help you know the power of faith.



Six dangers of losing faith

Six dangers of losing faith


1. You limit God Almighty

And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?

Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?

And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?

And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.

And he (Christ Jesus) did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

Matthew 13:54-58 KJV (Christ Jesus)

Christ Jesus (God Almighty) could not do much in Nazareth because of their lack of faith. Imagine Christ Jesus, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, failing to do miracles because of the people's faithlessness.


This should tell you about the danger of unbelief. Anytime we walk and live in unbelief, we limit the works of God (the Holy Spirit) in our lives. Analyze the miracles of Christ Jesus recorded in the Holy Scriptures.


Faith activated the miracles. In some cases, Christ Jesus will ask for the person desiring miracles. Do you have faith? This should make you understand the power of faith. Faith is one of the spiritual currencies.


I encourage you to download and read my book, 77 Currencies of the Spiritual World, for more profound revelations. The book is free on my blog and youtube channel. If you are going to touch the heart of God, faith is mandatory (meditate on Hebrews 11:6).


Anytime you walk and live in faithlessness, the Holy Spirit becomes “weak” in the situation. The Heavenly Father, Christ Jesus, and the Holy Spirit need your faith. When the Trinity sees your lack of faith, they will not draw closer.


Remember, the enemy of faith is doubt. Doubt is the twin brother of fear. So, whenever you live outside the realm of faith, you become helpless in the sight of the Holy Spirit (meditate on Matthew 13:58 and Hebrews 11:6 for more profound revelations).



2. It affects others

Do you remember my case in the previous article? My roommate started losing his faith because I started losing faith! David’s men started losing faith because David began losing faith when the enemy captured the entire family.


You might not know. However, your unbelief affects those in your circles. Anytime you walk and live in unbelief, you make those weak in the Lord and baby Christians vulnerable. Some people depend on your faith. The moment you start losing faith, they also start losing faith. Think about the faith of others when tempted to walk and live in unbelief.



3. You can backslide

Another thing I have realized about faithlessness is that it can make us deviate from the path of the Holy Spirit. Analyze the unbelievers. They have a common trait. Almost all of them don’t have faith in the Holy Spirit!


Because of their unbelief, they don’t care about their actions and words. Unbelief upgrades you to an unrepentant unbeliever. Unbelief makes you a god of yourself because you believe no God has power over you.


People who lack faith in God do as they please. They decide what is evil and good because of their darkness (unbelief). This is one reason some people advocate lesbianism, gay, bestiality, transgender or transexual, abortion, and grave evils.


Their lack of faith in God (Christ Jesus) and the Holy Bible has made their philosophies dark. Think twice. Anytime you decide to walk and live in unbelief, understand that you are threading in a dangerous zone (meditate on Proverbs 14:12).



4. You fall into the enemy’s trap

The enemy fears people who have faith in Christ Jesus. However, the moment you forsake Christ Jesus and live in unbelief, you become a prisoner in the enemy’s kingdom. Analyze harlots, womanizers, serial killers, criminals, and wicked vessels.


They have lost faith in Christ Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Bible. Because of their unbelief, evil spirits use them to glorify Satan. Most harlots, womanizers, witches, wizards, serial killers, criminals, and grave sinners believe that they are doing the right thing.


However, it is a deception of the enemy. Anytime you live outside the realm of the true faith, you live in bondage. Because you don’t have a spiritual shield, the enemy bombards you with his weapons. This is one reason we engage in deliverance prayers for specific unbelievers. We do that because they need the shield of faith to counterattack the enemy's arrows.



5. You can become an enemy of the Christian faith

Losing faith can make you an enemy of the Christian kingdom. Remember, we have types and levels of faith. For more profound revelations, download and read my book, How to Unlock the Gate of Faith.

The book is free on my blog and youtube channel. The Christian Kingdom is a kingdom of faith. Without faith, we cannot walk and live with the Holy Spirit. We need faith to do certain things in the Kingdom of Light.


However, when you lose faith, you begin to criticize the Church, the Holy Bible, Pastors, Prophets, Apostles, Evangelists, and Teachers of the faith. If you don’t take care, you can invite curses to your life and lineage because of your destructive criticism and attack on the body of Christ Jesus. Think twice when entering the realm of unbelief!



6. You can lose Heaven

Unbelief can make you lose Heaven. As we all know, losing Heaven guarantees the lake of fire. When you lose faith in Christ Jesus, you become a child of the world and the devil. Understand that no child of the devil has a place in Heaven.


You might have your reason for losing faith in God, Christ Jesus, the Holy Bible, and the Holy Spirit. However, know that God judges our hearts. If God gives you a chance to return from your backslidden state and you refuse, Hell is your final destination.


Now that you know some of the dangers of losing faith, I will share with you seven reasons people lose faith. Knowing these truths will enhance your faith in the Lord. Below are the seven reasons why people lose faith.



Seven reasons why you are losing faith

Seven reasons why you are losing faith

1. Because you don't have time for God's word

…faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Romans 10:17 KJV

As Paul states in the Holy Bible, faith comes by hearing more of God’s Word (the Holy Bible). In other words, the less you keep hearing God’s Word, the less your faith becomes. Failure to connect with the Holy Bible makes you weaker in the faith.


Some people read their Holy Bibles once a week, month, and year. Some people, too, listen to inspired Christian sermons once in a blue moon. If you are in these categories, you can easily lose your faith.


Studying the Holy Bible is my habit. Because of this reason, I grow daily in the faith. Aside from reading the Holy Bible, I read books inspired by the Holy Spirit and listen to inspired Christian sermons to boost my faith.


If you have no time for God’s Word, you will lose faith when trials and tests come your way. One thing you must know about God’s Word is that it carries unquenchable light. The more you feed on the Word of God, the greater your light (faith) becomes.


Do not neglect the power of God’s Word. Feed on the Word of God if you want to grow in faith. Ignore God's Word if you want to lose faith (meditate on Hebrews 4:12, 1 Peter 2:2, Romans 12:1-2 for more profound revelations).



2. Because of your association

Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.

1 Corinthians 15:33 KJV

Friends have a significant impact on our lives. It took the mercies of God to escape the trap of a bad friend. That friend almost landed me in the grave! I could have become a grave sinner if not for the intervention of the Holy Spirit.


This friend took me to several juju men (evil traditional priests). I encourage you to download and read my books, especially All Things Work Together for Good to Them That Loves God, for more wisdom keys.


I have shared most of my encounters in that book. As Paul states in the Holy Scriptures (see 1 Corinthians 15:33), evil communication corrupts good manners. The evil words you keep hearing from strangers and unrepentant wicked vessels can make you lose faith.


Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Proverbs 18:21 KJV

Death and life rest in our tongues. Therefore, whatever you keep hearing forms a philosophy. This is one reason you must choose wise and godly friends. Some people have a way of watering down the Christian faith.


They can mislead you. These people know how to misinterpret specific scriptures in the Holy Bible. If you are not rooted in the Holy Scriptures, they can make you lose faith. Do not equally yoke with people who have no interest in the Christian faith.


Watch out for the wolves in sheep's clothing! They can turn your faith upside down! I encourage you to download and read my books, Darkness Within the Light, Who is a Christian Believer, and Forty Types of Christian Believers, for more profound revelations. The books are free on my blog and youtube channel. Meditate on these Holy Scriptures for more profound revelations.


Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

2 Corinthians 6:14-18 KJV



3. Because of your weak prayer life

…ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,

Jude 1:20 KJV

Another reason you are losing faith is because you have a weak prayer life. Maybe I should be specific. You don’t have a prayer life. You must know that the Christian journey takes a consistent prayer life to sustain the faith (meditate on Matthew 26:41).


By God’s grace, there is no day that I don’t pray. Maybe the day I don’t pray or rarely pray is when I am extremely weak. I have built myself to the extent that even in bed, I pray. Sometimes, while in public, I pray silently in my mind.


As stated in the Holy Scriptures (see Jude 1:20), we build our most holy faith by praying in the Holy Ghost. There are over seventy strategic and tactical models of prayer. I encourage you to download and read my book, 77 Strategic and Tactical Models of Prayer, for more profound revelations.


He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the Church.

1 Corinthians 14:4 KJV


Pray more in the Spirit to edify yourself. As you pray in tongues, you grow in faith. We can read Jude chapter one, verse twenty this way. “Dear brethren, not praying in the Holy Ghost destroys your most holy faith.


In First Corinthians chapter fourteen, verse four, we can read the Holy Scriptures this way, “He that fails to pray, sing, worship, and praise in an unknown tongue destroy himself.” Failure to pray, especially in the Spirit, leads to faith destruction. Are you destroying your faith because of your prayerlessness?



4. Because of what you take in.

Do you know that the books you read, the videos you watch, the songs you listen to, and the games you play affect your faith? Well, you might be ignorant of this truth. However, I am sharing the truth.


Some books, videos, songs, and games destroy our faith in Christ Jesus. This is one reason we must read books inspired by the Holy Spirit. Once in a while, I read African tales and famous tales for fun.


Other times, I read self-help books to grow my knowledge. However, I analyze a book before reading it. Analyze a book before reading because it can destroy your faith. This reminds me of a story a Bible teacher told me years ago. I cannot remember the entire lesson. However, what I remember was that a famous Christian became an atheist because of a book he read!

  • What books are you reading?
  • What videos are you watching?
  • What games are you playing?
  • What music are you listening to?

The words and scenes in those materials can destroy your faith if they have no foundation in the Holy Bible.



5. Because you don't have a strong relationship with the Holy Spirit

I wish I had more time to write on this point! However, time will not permit. The least I can state here is that the Holy Spirit is the master controller of our lives. Let’s assume the Holy Spirit is your phone’s battery while the phone is your faith.


What do you think will happen to the phone when you fail to charge the phone’s battery? Definitely, the phone will go off. However, when you charge the phone’s battery, the phone becomes strong and usable.


The Holy Spirit is the battery of our faith. The more we fellowship and relate with the Holy Spirit, the more our faith strengthens. I feel so emotional when writing about the Holy Spirit! My heart burns with unexplainable virtues when I write about the Holy Spirit!


Please and please and please, if you don’t want your faith to die, make the Holy Spirit your closest friend. I think this should have been the first point. I encourage you to download and read my series of books on the Holy Spirit for more profound revelations.


The books are free on my blog and youtube channel. I love the Holy Spirit! Again, I love the Holy Spirit! He is my everything! Do not ignore the Holy Spirit if you don’t want your faith to die.



6. Because of your environment

Your neighborhood (workplace, school, social gathering, and home) significantly impact your faith. If you live in a place where the people and activities oppose the things of God, your faith can die.


For instance, if you work in an environment where the workers hate the Church and anything that glorifies Christ Jesus, the Holy Bible, and the Holy Spirit, you can fall from the faith. You are likely to fall from the faith because the defiled words and actions of the environment will deflate your faith. If you live in a corrupt environment that constantly defiles the things of God, relocate to restore and regenerate your faith.



7. Because of extreme independence and dependence spirit

One reason people lose faith is because they are incredibly independent. I know some temperaments and personalities love to be alone for some time. However, if you are too independent, you become vulnerable.


On the other hand, some temperaments and personalities love to hang around people for some time. However, if you are too dependent, you become vulnerable. Let me tackle the extreme introverts.


One thing about extremely introverted (independent) people is that they easily become depressed. Anytime you become depressed, it negatively affects your faith. This reminds me of an African tale I read.


It was a bird. The bird loved to be alone. He ate alone and stored food for himself. Because of that attitude, most animals distanced themselves from the bird. Because of the extreme independence and pride of the bird, it died, and no one knew it had died.


It was when one inquisitive animal checked why the extremely independent bird had not come out of its nest for several days. That was when the other animals realized that the bird had died.


This is how most extremely independent people lose their faith. Because they want to keep their problems and share them with no one, they lose faith without knowing they are backslidden. Let me share another fairy tale about highly dependent people.


This is an African fairy tale I read. It was a dog. According to the tale, dogs were not domestic animals. They lived far from human beings because human beings were hostile to them. Another reason dogs lived far from humans was because of fear.


However, a puppy (baby dog) accidentally encountered a little boy one day. The little boy was friendly to the baby dog. From there, the boy began feeding the baby dog in his room. Because the dog received good treatment and meals from the little boy, the dog decided to stay with the little boy.


Before that, the little boy's parents had warned their child (the boy) to send the dog away. However, the boy did not like the idea of his parents. The boy decided to feed the little dog with his meal.


This meant the boy had to share his daily meal with the dog. This was the agreement between the boy and his parents. Fortunately for the dog, it grew into a large, lovely dog. One day, the dog returned to its family in the bush and reported what the boy did.


The dog tried convincing its parents that human beings were friendly. However, the dog's parents did not respond. The dog returned to his friend, and life continued. Lucky for the little dog (now grown up), it could convince a female dog about human beings in the bush.


The female dog joined him in the boy’s house. From there, the dogs started to have puppies in the boy’s house. From that day, human beings began to see the friendliness of dogs. Some human beings took some of the puppies to their homes.


As time passed, dogs became more and more popular in the neighborhood. However, the more dogs increased, the more vulnerable some became to wicked people. Some dogs were used as meats in specific homes.


The lesson from this African tale is that too much closeness creates vulnerabilities. The more you get closer to someone, the more vulnerable you become. You are more likely to hurt someone close to you than someone far from you.


One reason extremely dependent people lose faith is because they want to please everyone in their circles. For instance, some people backslide and deviate from the faith because the people around them desire and demand it.


Be dependent (friendly). However, apply wisdom. Like the dog, his closeness to humankind made it and its lineage vulnerable. On the other side, be independent. However, do not die like the extremely independent bird.


Apply wisdom. Do not lose faith because of extreme independence and dependence. I will continue in the next article. I couldn’t even share one point on what to do when losing faith. Hopefully, as promised, I will expand on those points in the next article. Kindly share the link to this article to save a life.
