To be productive is to be fully given to God’s purpose and God’s plan. You’re no longer after your own plans. Your main concern is to follow God and pursue his purpose for your life. It’s all about the eternal purpose of God.
God’s ways are not always logical.
Logic can be an idol. So don’t trust in logic. Trust in the Lord instead. Even when he seems to be illogical.
Logic is all about trusting in reason. But FAITH is all about trusting in God, even when it’s not reasonable.
How do you trust in God?
“So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.”
Romans 10:17 ESV
The more you hear God’s word, the more FAITH is developed in you.
What we need is to develop our sense of faith. In the same way that we have our five senses (sight, smell, sound, touch, and taste), we also have our sense of faith. When you see an object, you know it exists simply because you see it. When you “sense” it by faith, you know it is true because God says it.
“For we live by faith, not by sight.”
2 Corinthians 5:7 NIV
We no longer live by our physical senses, putting our trust in logic and reason. But by faith, we hear God’s voice and take action based on what he says because we know God’s word is true.
Here is an audio recording of John 15:1-16 I created with some instrumental worship music in the background. I hope listening to this audio recording helps you build your faith as you listen to God’s word.
Listen to God’s word.
Walk by faith.
