What is the role of faith in my life?

In Psalm 139, David's praying to God and he says, “I am fearfully and wonderfully made, with unique gifts, passions, and experiences that equip me for a specific purpose in God’s kingdom”.

The role of faith in my life has enabled me to use my spiritual gifts, heart, abilities, personality and experiences to serve others, in glory of God, and advance His kingdom by seeking opportunities to share His love, use my talents for His glory, and be a faithful servant and witness of His grace in all areas of my life.
