We may conveniently equate faith with prompt, positive action, or even absolute obedience. Yet, Confidence is one of the vital organs in the definition of absolute faith. Another vital part of faith is Boldness. Still another, is Positive Expectation. Your expectation is your faith. God doesn't like His children approaching people or life's issues trembling, wavering and in confusion. Neither does he want us approaching Him looking pious, pompous or primitive! We know that God loves and cares about us, therefore He'll always defend, protect and provide for us, when we start trusting and stop fretting, worrying and being timid! This is what to do; PRAY AND MOVE! That's how to meet and move the awesome God Almighty to work for you. There's no greater privilege. Hallelujah!
So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful, trembling slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.”
And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for.
God also bound himself with an oath, so that those who received the promise could be perfectly sure that he would never change his mind. So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us.

Enjoy a marvelous day in God's awesome presence.
