The world system, especially for American Christians, is a tough place to build up your faith because of identity fraud. There are still many countries in the world where you need to work your faith just to get water to drink; whereas in America and other advanced countries, you just need to know an address or two. In advance countries, you still need faith, but mainly for advanced things not made so readily available to all. In America, if I just need a shirt, then I just need to know the closer address to where I roam, then someone at that address will kindly give me one; however, in that same America as well as other advanced countries, if I need something more advanced in general like a car, then I will need more than just an address. I will need enough money to cover its cost, or I will need decent credit with a viable means to make monthly payments, or I will need to have faith because of a “Word” from God given to me that someone with those things will come to my rescue, in general. I say in general because there is some one always sitting ready to spring forth with an exception, but in general, the majority of people will need some form of money and credit to get advanced things because that’s just the way of the world.
Let’s be thankful at all times that we live in America, or in one of the other advanced countries, because of the manty opportunities afforded us to build a life. This is the part however, where opportunity can trump faith, and have us not ready for action when we need faith because of lack of opportunity. If we need something, but the door is not open for us at that time, then we will need to call on our faith if we need it now. Identity fraud is not the fault of opportunity, so please keep it coming, but if we have labeled most of our nation’s opportunities as moves of God based on our faith, the identity fraud will be ours to behold. We need to keep our skill set in the operation of faith at a high level so that we can respond readily when there is no opportunity made for us by the world on a particular shortcoming. The Supreme court may have banned organized prayer to all kids by the school, but the government has also over the years instituted organized feeding to all kids in need by the school thank God. There is God, and there is just the good that comes from being in an advanced nation. We must receive that a lot of good things come from opportunity provided regardless of faith, and I wouldn’t change any opportunity that comes to benefit the people in a good way.
Hey, everybody isn’t able, but if you can have faith in God to get what you need while having opportunity afforded you by a great nation to get what you need, then there is no law against dipping into the one that get’s you what you need when you need it. It is by the world’s system in which we are raised, and trained to function in society while our faith grows to play a bigger part in our life as we establish who we are. Listen, the opportunities in our nation is how we have life, and the opportunities in God by our faith is how we can have life more abundantly. So, don’t make the world’s system with all of it’s great opportunity such a crutch that you lose you ability to walk by faith when the world’s system can’t help you. It is God’s will that each system, the world’s system as well as the faith process grows its own identity to itself. We just need to be able to identify the one we call on in order to use it correctly. They both grow together early in our lives because it is so hard to separate them: from a child we see our parents work hard all day in the world’s system to supply our needs, and from a child we hear from our faith leaders at every turn how God will supply all our needs right. So let them both grow together, and then you will know how to get the good out of both. God is not a man that he shall lie, so you must know how to walk by in faith with him in truth to get that which the world’s system does not have for you. Because we have received so much from the world’s system most of our early life, we tend to give up too early on the faith system: the two process are totally different in their operation. Let’s keep it simple with God, and the faith process: once you start a faith operation just know that your receiving is connected to your believing. If you want to receive from your faith, believe in truth to the end.
