If you want a faith that doesn’t fluctuate, it begins with making your faith about more than your feelings. Steven Furtick

Standard

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Matthew 6:33)

As Jesus issued the words recorded in Matthew 6:33, He was communicating a very specific principle regarding our faith:

Provision is about priorities.

Mature faith — the kind that doesn’t fluctuate— isn’t predicated on your feelings.

This might mean…
● Praying when you feel like complaining
● Starting your day with God’s Word rather than scrolling through social feeds
● Asking for help instead of entering into isolation
● Expressing gratitude for what you have instead of entertaining envy about what you don’t
● Serving others rather than indulging yourself

If you want a faith that doesn’t fluctuate, it begins with making your faith about more than your feelings.
