Yet belief does not create reality, it recognizes reality. And that reality includes God and all He chooses to do.
If I have enough faith God will give me what I ask for, right?
Faith is trust. If I trust God I will ask Him for, and receive from Him, what He wants for me.
This can be what I need in order to carry out the mission He has given me.
This can also be a new red sports car. Can I ask Him for a new red sports car?
God is amazingly generous and many, many times He has given me even more than what I have asked for; but He has only promised to give me what I need: food, clothing and shelter.
And I can learn to be content with that; because Jesus said that even in abundance my life does not consist of what I have.
It consists of Him.
