Are you tired of living a mediocre life? The Bible has called believers to live outside the mold of this world; however, more often than not, we get swept into going through the motions and doing what is expected of us rather than breaking the status quo to pursue the CrAzY!
In his latest release, Michael Todd challenges Christians to stop playing it safe. Whether you’re a big dreamer who doubts that your visions will ever come to pass, someone who feels stuck in their 9 to 5 job, or you’re waiting for God to speak after an elongated season of silence, Crazy Faith examines the calling placed on each of our hearts while teaching readers how to grow their faith from being that of a newborn’s (Baby Faith) to being wildly on fire and ready to follow the call of God (Crazy Faith), no matter how out of the box it is — think Noah or Moses!
Definition of Crazy Faith – “Having thoughts and actions that lack reason but trusting fully in what you cannot explicitly prove.” ~ Michael Todd
All my life, I have watched my family live a Crazy Faith lifestyle. From moving country whenever the Spirit told us to leave to trusting God to provide when there wasn’t enough money in the bank, it’s been incredibly building to witness God’s faithfulness and experience the open doors that come when we walk in obedience. Nothing is too big or small for our God; yet, while I have lived unconventionally my entire life, there has always been a part of me (more like the whispers of the Enemy) telling me that I should live a more “normal” life that others will approve of rather than constantly misunderstanding.
“Our God loves to use crazy things that don’t make sense to sensible people to confound anybody who thinks he’s got it all figured out.” ~ Michael Todd
While it would be easy to fall into the trap of living for money and success, God has given me a specific calling that might seem impossible due to my lack of experience; however, I firmly believe that it will come to pass. Reading Crazy Faith not only confirmed this belief but transformed my faith, moving me into a higher gear! Though I disagreed with a few points (sometimes it felt like Michael Todd was focusing on too materialistic visions), Crazy Faith inspired me to draw closer to God and press deeper into the things He wanted to say to me. Laying a more solid foundation that will not easily be shaken, this is a book I will revert to again and again!
“You have somewhere important to go and people waiting on you at that destination. But to get here, you need the fuel of faith. You need hope.” ~ Michael Todd
There is SO MUCH to glean from Crazy Faith! An incredible tool, I truly believe God is using Michael Todd to ignite a new passion within the believing community that will rattle the foundation of this world and set in motion a new kind of faith life that will wake up the sleepers! God uses the underdogs to bring glory to His name, and He wants to use you! It’s time to press in and no longer be afraid to do things that might seem insane right now.
“So many things that seem normal today were crazy five minutes ago.” ~ Michael Todd.
If God has given you a vision or called you to walk on an unexpected path, I wholeheartedly recommend you read this book and ask the Father to reveal Himself through each chapter! We need to stop trying to fit God into a box or dipping our toes into the water to test the temperature and start diving straight into the CrAzY, unexpected and thrilling journey of walking by faith and not by sight!
“If and when you feel unworthy, doubtful, anxious, impatient, unmotivated, or overwhelmed this week, let the Holy Spirit remind you of this promise about your purpose. You are not a mistake! You are chosen.” ~ Michael Todd
