We don’t face difficulties only after having deepened our faith. Rather, it is by facing difficulties that we can polish our lives and develop invincible, diamondlike faith. No matter what worries or sufferings we may have, it is important that we pray honestly about them to the Gohonzon. Through chanting daimoku, we can overcome any suffering. This might seem like just a subtle difference in the order of things, but whether we can really do this is decisive.
As we live out lives of mission, we are certain to encounter a variety of painful difficulties. But as long as our hearts remain firm, as long as we are not swayed in our faith, there is no hardship we cannot overcome, there is no ordeal that we cannot break through. People inherently possess immeasurable power. This is the power of the Buddha of limitless joy who has been enlightened since time without beginning.
