Text: ​“So Daniel said to the steward whom the chief of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, “Please test your servants for ten days, and let them give us vegetables to eat and water to drink. Then let our appearance be examined before you, and the appearance of the young men who eat the portion of the king’s delicacies; and as you see fit, so deal with your servants.”” ― Daniel 1:11-13, NKJV. 

TFO Keynote #57: Man's belief is limited by his vision. What you see is what you believe. What you believe is what you see. You are limited by what you see. You are limited by what you believe. (Hebrews 11:7)

Vision motivates. Vision prompts action.

Faith is a kind of attitude of trust or assent.

Faith is an intellectual act whose object is truth.

Vision evokes awe and releases the imagination.

What you cannot see with your mind's eyes you cannot have.

What you cannot see with your mind's eyes you cannot believe.

“What you see is evidence of what you believe.” — Wayne Dyer. 

Vision is the song your heart sings. Vision is specific and unique to you.

“Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward for this faith is to see what you believe.” —St. Augustine of Hippo.

TFO Keynote #58: Faith is being sold out to God's word. It is trusting God wholly. (Hebrews 11:8) 

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths." — Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV)

TFO Keynote #59: Faith is surrender to God, His will, and purpose. (Hebrews 11:8)

A surrender is an act of worship.

There is no worship without surrender.

God only uses vessels surrendered to Him.

Surrender is a death experience. It is dying to self.

Surrender is to be willing and obedient, to be sold out.

"Surrender is Worship of God." — St. AndrĂ© Bessette.
