Living by Faith, or by Deeds, or a little of Both

 When it comes right down to the nuts and bolts of having a relationship with the living God, what do most people do? Do they trust in God completely? Do they trust in God and also in their ability to do what God asks of them, or is it maybe a little bit of both, or a lot of one and God and Automobilesa little of the other?

Are some of the ways in which we endeavor to live with God tougher on us than others?

Personally, I think the toughest route is living by faith, alone.  I think that trusting that God will be there for me, and forgive me, and provide for me, is just about impossible to do all of the time.  It always seems easiest for me if I take the teamwork approach and rely on God once in awhile and rely on my own efforts most of the time.

Is there a right way and a wrong way to approach our relationship with the living God?

How do you handle it?
