If ever there was a time we need more faith than fear, it’s now. What type of faith do you have? Did you know that your faith can be alive or dead? Dead faith doesnâ€™t do anything but talk and remain stagnant. There are a lot of people who love God, but they arenâ€™t overcoming obstacles or accomplishing their God-given dreams, and are spend time worrying and fearful, simply because they are not putting any action or belief behind their faith. Their faith is simply dead.
With that in mind what can you do today to make your faith alive and not dead? It doesnâ€™t have to be anything big. By simply believing, standing and obeying Godâ€™s Word, putting it to the test, doing your best and allowing it to motivate and move you upward and forward, then your faith is alive. When you go to work every day despite how you feel and what’s going on in the world, and give it 100% and encourage those who are down, you are demonstrating your faith.
Today, putting a smile on your face when you feel down or discouraged, believing Godâ€™s promises and not your feelings is putting action behind your faith. Taking time to go to church when others say stay home, thatâ€™s faith that is alive. Believing that prayer is still the greatest weapon in this warfare, thatâ€™s faith that activates Godâ€™s power. Thatâ€™s faith that opens the door for God to move on your behalf! With faith that is alive, youâ€™ll rise up higher. Youâ€™ll overcome obstacles, and youâ€™ll move forward, not relying on the government but on God, moving into the blessing and victory He has in store for you!
â€œ…faith without works is dead.â€ (James 2:20, NKJV)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for Your Word which is life to my soul. Thank You for the gift of faith, please show me how to exercise it. Father, show me ways to put my faith into action and make it alive. God, guide my steps and keep me close to You, so that everything I do brings honour to You, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.
