What does it take to live in heroic faith? Dependence on God’s power to lift us, preserve us, go before us, defend us, guard us, teach us. In short, bowing before Him in all aspects of our lives is how we live in heroic faith. The American Dream was never God’s goal for us. Knowing Him and His glory and becoming like Him is at the forefront of the plans God has for us. This is our great discovery when we give up our hopes and dreams for Him to fashion a new life for us. We struggle with this, but His rewards for us are limitless.
