What does it really mean to put God first in your life?
The only reason I used the phrase “trying to increase your faith” in the title of this article is because I do believe that there must be a willingness on our part to follow God when he is seeking to increase our faith. God won’t increase your faith if you reject his offer. If we resist, the opportunities for growth he is giving us will be wasted.
Contrary to popular belief, following God is not the safest way to live your life. The Bible is full of incredible stories of faithful saints who followed God even when it was risky. However, the Bible is also full of verses commanding us to be wise. As Christians, we need to find the biblical balance between wisdom and taking risks when God leads us to do so.

There are many other ways to tell, however, that someone’s identity is truly rooted in Christ. Here are 3 ways you can tell if you are truly finding your identity in Christ. These points can also help you gauge whether or not someone else is rooted in Christ so you do not become unequally yoked (2 Corinthians 6:14).
Before we can talk about “God testing you,” we first have to clarify the differences between a test and a temptation. While the Bible is clear that God can initiate a test in your life, it is also clear that God will never tempt you with sin.
