Resurrecting Faith — Faith is dead without works, and it is made alive through actions of surrender and repentnace. God desires relationship so closely with us that we can hold our plans, possessions, identities lightly and entrust Him with everything. He has given us corporate and individual promises becasue He expects us to walk in those prmises, not simply to wait on them. Every act of faith is trusting God to be who He says He is. We can only acquire this trust by facing vulnerable situations with Him at the helm. We were meant to thrive on believing He is who He says He is.
