living faith


God has a myriad of ways to provide.


He is our ultimate Source, and all things that are good and perfect come from Him. But if we do not recognize Him as our Source, we may miss His provision. We must recognize that we need to look to Him as our Provider. Everything else is merely a resource—only He is the Source. Having this perspective will change the trajectory of our life. It is the basis of faith.


As we look to God as our Source of provision, we’ll discover that He is ready to come through for us, encounter us where we are, and meet our deepest needs.

We must keep faith alive.

We must keep faith alive. We must have a living faith, one that has life in it. Embracing a faith that works means we bring God’s perspective into every situation. It’s not just about believing something because you believe it. In fact, if you do not have an object of faith sufficient to what you are believing for, then your faith may very well be merely a dead faith—one that has no life attached to it because it has no actions attached to it.

Faith involves action.

If you want to see your faith come alive, ask yourself: what act of your faith is demonstrating that you are serious about what you say you believe? If your faith is only in your speech and not in your feet, it’s not alive. Faith involves action.
