Research: How Canadian Christians Exercise Faith

78 percent of Canadian Christians believe God has a plan for their life, even in difficult circumstances. This was part of a study LifeWay Research study of 1068 Canadian Christians that attended church services at least once a month.

66 percent of the respondents stated that they “express praise and gratitude to God even in difficult circumstances.”

Additionally, 60 percent of respondents disagreed with the statement, “I sometimes doubt that God can change the lives of non-Christians I know.” Less than one in four (23%) agreed with the statement.

The overall results indicate that the longer someone has trust Christ, the more likely they are to trust Him. Christians that were involved in a Bible study group, or who pray for or witness to non-Christians tended to trust God more than those who did not.

Discussion:
Do you believe that God has a plan for your life even when you are going through difficult situations? Why or why not?
Do you think that trusting God is an intentional decision that you make?

    Yes, absolutely! I believe God has a plan for our lives because I believe His word, the Bible. It teaches this regardless of our perception of our current circumstances. I also believe trusting God or any person is an intentional act or decision. If not, how could any of us say we “don’t trust” someone or some thing? Obviously, we are making a choice.
