Hello delightful believers,
Today I want to speak to you about faith in action, saying “Yes” to God when He calls. Faith begins with our relationship to God.
It is Jesus who is the author and finisher of our faith. Faith is living, active trust in the person of God.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Heb 11:1 KJV
Our faith is outworked as we seek the Lord’s face diligently, interact with Him and act upon what He has revealed to be His will. God is always working all around you.
Faith is not just deciding deciding what you want, visualising it and then speaking it out until you receive it…no, it is an individual child of God having access to God through the blood of Jesus and, in His presence, having God reveal His will to you. Do you want God’s will or your own? It means seeing what He is doing and getting involved as and when God directs.
God is at work all around us, influencing the lives of men. He has a plan and a purpose in the existence of every living thing. As we get to know God through prayer and the study of His Word, God is wanting to speak to our hearts and give us direction for our life circumstances. Just as Jesus said He could do nothing without His Father, it is the same for us.
God is not far away from you. He is very near and has promised to guide you through life. When He speaks be obedient and step out in faith if He directs you to take any specific actions. Remember, faith without works is dead, but acting when God has spoken paves the way to make the impossible possible!
Blessings to you
