I don't understand really religious people. I mean no disrespect, but how can you believe God will solve everything? The way people talk sounds like they won't do anything on their own. I understand asking Him for help, but don't you need to try too? Sorry if this comes out really rude.
it didnt come out rude, i completely understand and i agree. an old joke comes to mind (it was in Pursuit of Happyness, gr8 movie):
"There was an old man sitting on his porch watching the rain fall. Pretty soon the water was coming over the porch and into the house.
The old man was still sitting there when a rescue boat came and the people on board said, “You can’t stay here you have to come with us.”
The old man replied, “No, God will save me.” So the boat left. A little while later the water was up to the second floor, and another rescue boat came, and again told the old man he had to come with them.
The old man again replied, “God will save me.” So the boat left him again.
An hour later the water was up to the roof and a third rescue boat approached the old man, and tried to get him to come with them.
Again the old man refused to leave stating that, “God will save him.” So the boat left him again.
Soon after, the man drowns and goes to heaven, and when he sees God he asks him, “Why didn’t you save me?”
God replied,”You dummy! I tried. I sent three boats after you!!”“
i believe that prayer is powerful. i believe that God listens to what we have to say. but James 2:14-17 says “What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace, be warmed and filled,’ without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”. we need to have faith in what God is doing, faith He’ll answer us, but part of that faith is having faith that He’ll direct your footsteps. He can’t do that if youre not moving.
