1. How do you feel God in your life? How do you know he's there for you?
James 4:8 tells us to draw close to God and he’ll draw close to us. Which for me personally, is very true.
Philippians 4:6 tells us: “Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that excels all thought will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.”
Matthew 6:25-34 says: Stop being anxious about you souls as to what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your bodies as to what you will wear. Does not the soul mean more than food and the body than clothing? Observe intently the birds of heaven, because they do not sow seed or reap or gather into storehouses; still you heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth more than they are? Who of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his life span? Also, on the matter of clothing, why are you anxious? Take a lesson from the lilies of the field, how they are growing; they do not toil, nor do they spin; but I say to you that not even Sol'o·mon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these. If, now, God thus clothes the vegetation of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much rather clothe you, you with little faith? So never be anxious and say, ‘What are we to eat?’ or, ‘What are we to drink?’ or, ‘What are we to put on?’ For all these are the things the nations are eagerly pursuing. For you heavenly Father knows you need all these things. “Keep on, then, seeking first the kingdom and his righteousness, and all these [other] things will be added to you. So, never be anxious about the next day, for the next day will have its own anxieties. Sufficient for each day is its own badness.
These tell me that so long as I put him first in my life, all these things will be added to me and I’ve personally felt that several times. I’ve even been on the verge of being homeless, no food, no money nothing but reliance and even if it has been something as small as someone inviting me over for a meal or to crash at their place for a bit, I’ve always felt as though these words have proved true for me.
Even in this day and age with the world economy is going down the toilet, we can all take comfort in these scriptures and come to an understanding that we don‘t need lots of stuff and possessions, a big house and all that comes with it to make us truly happy.
2. Why is your faith important to you?
My faith is my everything. What’s the point of living otherwise?
3. How does your ENFP-ness jive with your faith
Its great! I love being able to see the bigger picture so clearly in my mind that it almost drowns out all the other crap this world likes to dish out. I’m not worried about world events like most people are. I’m not worried about the future, because I already know what’s in store for us.
James 2:19- “You believe there is one God, do you? You are doing quite well. And yet the demons believe and shudder.”
Psalms 83: 18- “That people may know that you, whose name is Jehovah, you alone are the most high over all the earth.”
2 Peter 3: 13- “But there are new heavens and a new earth that we are awaiting according to his promise, and in these righteousness is to dwell.”
To name a few…
