When you are practicing God-thinking, you do not plan anything without including faith in the Almighty. You shouldn't have any goals that don't require the hand of God to be fulfilled. If what you are doing and planning to do doesn't require the hand of God, you are living far below where your Father in heaven has raised you. You have slipped from the call to faith. You have accepted the world's standard of excellence. If you have not included the hand in God in what you are doing or planning to do, you have not exercised your faith.
You have not believed God. "For whatsoever is not of faith is sin." Romans 14:23
