“Faith is not a ticket out of trouble but a default lifestyle for the just”.
My bible says the just shall live by faith not the just shall have his needs met by faith and in my understanding it means as a child of God (The Just), Faith should not just be a ticket out of trouble rather, it should be a default lifestyle. Faith is the normal form for the just. Faith shouldn’t just be applied when you need God’s word on a particular issue; Faith shouldn’t be something you just pick up in days of trouble. Faith should be a lifestyle, a way of life, how we live our lives everyday. We should grow to apply faith in all our dealings even in the tiniest of things like free lunch *smiles*,etc. It’s tiring to wait till you’re done spending your energy on getting things done when you can just cast your cares and use your faith, all you need do is make faith a living part of your life. It all gets simpler when faith becomes a lifestyle.
God is working in me too cos lately I’ve been learning to trust him for the smallest of things too, not just the major issues of life but everything; Relationship, Academics, Family, Finances, even Emotions. . . I am his RIGHTEOUSNESS so I have FAITH in HIM to take care of ME! You should too. . . *winks*
