Let’s be real. Faking it ’til you make it generally does not work. Salvation is not by theory (thought or perception) alone. It is by application (action and movement). You cannot think your way to deliverance or freedom in Jesus Christ. It is applied spiritual actions that manifest results.
Do not fake it until you make it or you will never make it at all. Be real about where you are so that you get to where you are going. You can only get there with Truth (Jesus Christ).
Be patient with yourself and others. Your walk is not a race. You must practice to master. Faking it is not making it. It is literally keeping you trapped in a cycle of false starts and deception.
