Have you ever considered the implication of this scripture?
But remember the LORD your God, because he is the one who gives you the ability to produce wealth, in order to confirm his covenant that he promised – Deut 8:18
Lets say He made a promise of wealth to you.
While we may wait passively for God to fulfill His promise to bless us with wealth, what if He is giving you the ability to MAKE wealth in order to fulfill His promise?
Your passivity would then result in you missing the opportunities He is sending you to MAKE wealth.
I maintain that there is no room for passivity in Christianity.
Yes we do believe in order to receive… but our believing faith is an active faith.
Even when we wait on Him, we are soaring like eagles… we are still actively adjusting to the winds. Its not passive.
