How’s your faith feel these days?
Seriously, though, is it feeling tired? Tired faith feels like reacting instead of responding. It feels like it’s defensive a lot of the time, and that it lacks what it needs to get to the finish line. Tired faith breeds disappointment and bitterness. Tired faith can leave you hopeless and feeling like there’s just no point. But that’s not the kind of faith God gives to us, so what can we do to fire up our faith and get it feeling fully alive again?
That’s what this episode of the Positioned to Prosper podcast is all about! We’ll talk a little bit about how faith gets tired, why you definitely don’t want to keep going with tired faith, and what some telltale signs of tired faith are. Then I’ll share five ideas for firing up your faith and making sure it never gets tired again. Are you ready to do this? If so, grab your Bible, your journal and a pen, and . . . Let’s Go!
