Faith for Daily Living

Yesterday I shared a post about the need for confession in a believer’s life, and it was met with some resistance. One of the concerns brought to my attention that I would like to address here is the idea that confessing God’s Word is a way to try and manipulate Him to give us what we want and that having a desire for more and better is not what belief in God is all about. While I do agree that we do sometimes put more emphasis on self than on the needs of others, I do not believe that our personal successes and victories or our desire for them are necessarily a hindrance to the work of Christ. I actually believe that God places a desire for more and better on the inside of us so that we can be more of an asset to His Kingdom.

So here’s a question I would like to pose to my fellow bloggers and social media friends…If we didn’t have a desire to want more or better, what would we need faith for in our daily lives? The Bible says that “the just shall live by faith (Habakkuk 2:4b, Romans 1: 17b, Galatians 3:11b, and Hebrews 10:38a). I don’t know about you but every day that I wake up I am living, so beyond believing God for salvation, what should we be believing God for on a daily basis? I’d love to hear your thoughts. 🙂

    After salvation comes the Great Commission, to make disciples of all people. We don’t all do that the same way, so more and better related to our God given abilities to do that are exactly what we need. Where more and better get in the way of us performing the Great Commission, that’s when we’re getting off track. Once we really realize what our salvation means, it’s a gift that we really want to share, so that’s the goal. More and better sharing of that salvation. I recently read a book where someone converted to Christianity and then asked his friends who were already Christian – why didn’t you tell me? That’s what we should try to do daily, through faith.

    Great question. This is my 2 cents worth. Hope it helps!

      Great answer!Thanks for taking the time to respond and for sharing your 2 cents. 🙂 You are right. It certainly does take faith to get out there and share our faith with others that we know and those we don’t know. It also takes faith to keep sharing it when others do not choose to accept. It helps to know that we’ve planted the seed, someone else will come and water the seed, and God will give the increase in the form of those individuals eventually accepting Him as Savior and Lord. Keep spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ!
