Men of old who walked with God were not counted worthy and acceptable because of their works, neither was the exploit they made a result of their ability but a product of their reliance and trust in God.
The scriptures (which is not a product of men’s imagination) is full of promises that is meant to be fulfilled in the lives of those who can trust in God.
If the fulfilment Of God’s promise Is dependent on our faith(trust, believe, reliance) in God does it means we cannot survive without faith and if yes what kind of faith do we need for survival?
Opinion: To me faith means believing in the promises of God. Though I have not really grown great in trusting God because I do get distracted sometimes and I am as well begging God to help me so that I can trust Him deeply.
Opinion: I know I should believe God for all things but it seems difficult, it is difficult to sincerely trust God. But I am trying my best and I hope I will be better.
Opinion: Developing trust in God is based on how serious we are with Him.As the Bible says faith is the evidence of things not seen, before we can trust God fully for everything it means we are very serious with Him. As for me I can say I am trying my best to really trust God, If measured on the scale I will not weigh anything lesser than 80 of 100.
Opinion: Faith to me means having the mindset that difficult things can be made easy, talking a bold step that at first appears to be unrealistic. Having faith in God is the principal thing but it will be difficult to totally believe God, however, I am hoping to increase my level of faith in God and stop looking into situations around me.
In the light of the scriptures
Faith in God determines our acceptance with God, it tells if we have a right standing with God or not. (Romans 4:5 Amp)
I love the presentation of Romans 1:17 by Amplified version
For in the Gospel a righteousness which God ascribes is revealed, both springing from faith and leading to faith [disclosed through the way of faith that arouses to more faith]. As it is written, The man who through faith is just and upright shall live and shall live by faith.
This verse points to us that our survival as well as the exploit we will make here on earth is based on our believe in God(faith).
It will however be impossible to continue a thing that has not started – it is not possible for those who have not submitted to Christ to live by faith. It is impossible to believe God if not through Christ Jesus. For it is through Christ that we all are given the privilege to become the righteousness of God(2cor5:21)
Doubting God’s word or His abilities is a great danger and a major hinderence to the fulfilment of God’s promise to believers.
If any man will survive and get the fullness of the promises of God there is the need to develop a great faith in God, hope continually and yet praise God more and more.
God is ever faithful, believe him.
