Isn’t it comforting to know that God has people of faith and people of prayer scattered throughout each generation—people who pray and believe on our behalf?
But you know, I discovered that you and I cannot live on somebody else’s faith the rest of our lives. If we try to, we probably won’t live out the full number of our days on this earth. We won’t walk in the fullness of the financial blessings God has stored up for us. We won’t walk in the fullness of the ministry gifts God wants to pour out on us for the benefit of the world around us, a world that’s full of lost, sick, lonely and needy people.
If you and I continue to depend only on the faith of other believers—our spouses, our parents, our children, or even our pastors and spiritual leaders—we will always be hindered and hampered, and never as free and successful as God wants us to be.
So we must develop our faith. We must learn how to operate in our own faith. That’s why, in this two-part series, I want us to focus on four specific principles of faith.
