Does strategy/planning play a role in faith (faith without works is dead) or should one simply “wait upon the Lord”?
Jesus didn’t ask us to develop strategy/plan though Scripture does tell us to be wise…to “know the cost” before we jump in and get started. Reasoning and developing strategy/planning for life’s little experiments teach me to trust God to keep the promises He has made.
Jesus asked us know who He is, not what He’s done. While nature, His written word, etc. explain who Jesus is, I can only truly know who He is by the proding of the Holy Spirit…faith (divine persuasion) enables me to know that Jesus is God and that He loves me. “Eyes to see and ears to hear”.
