Do you try to “think positive” and “hope” everything will work out all right, or do you have faith that God will work everything out?

Remember: The opposite of faith is doubt, it is unbelief. Doubt only needs more facts. Unbelief is disobedience and refuses to act in accordance with what God has declared.
Faith is not something that we try to get to make the Word happen in our lives...it is accepting the Word of God at face value, receiving it as we would the word of a trusted friend.
Take time to pray, confessing any unbelief you may have in your heart concerning the Word of God. Ask Jesus, who is the author and perfecter of your faith, to help you grow strong in faith.
