Faith is those hands outstretched toward God that will never come back empty. It's not a laziness attitude expecting that God will come down to give me everything I need automatically. Heaven is neither an ATM machine nor a social website match maker. In fact that doesn't me God cannot provide money, spouses, houses and so forth. God created us with the ability to think, to work and to dominate the creation. Because of sin we become limited and it's when our weakness strikes that faith intervene. Praying and staying with our arms crossed over our chest waiting on God to provide everything is not faith; it's superstition and does not glorify God. What is important to us is found in Matthew 6:33.
Matthew 6:33 (NIV)
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
