To quote Che Guevera, "The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall.
Really, many things in life we try to que sera sera it, rather than going out to fight because we believe in fate.
But what is greater than fate, is our ability to initiate.
Faith is an initiating act to trust God.
You take a "step" of faith.
To quote one of my favourite authors, "Providence takes its cue from men". - Aldous Huxley.
Providence- that which is the provision of God- only activates upon men's cue. We activate the power of God with our faith, and with our attitude. Most importantly, with our prayer.
