James 2:20 – But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
Did you know that faith can be alive or faith can be dead? There are a lot of people who are missing out on the abundant life. They love God, but they aren’t overcoming their obstacles or accomplishing their God-given dreams simply because they are not putting any action behind their faith. Their faith is dead, and it isn’t activating God’s power.
What can you do today to keep your faith alive? It doesn’t have to be something big. Just simply obeying God and doing your best keeps your faith alive. When you go to work every day and give it 100%, you are demonstrating your faith. Sometimes just putting a smile on your face when you feel discouraged, that’s putting action behind your faith. Just taking time to go to church—that’s faith that is alive. That’s faith that activates God’s power. That’s faith that opens the door for God to move on your behalf. With faith that is alive, you’ll rise up higher. You’ll overcome obstacles, and you’ll move forward into the abundant life God has in store for you!
Father in heaven, thank You for Your Word which is life to my soul. Show me ways to put my faith in action. Guide my steps and keep me close to You so that everything I do brings honor to You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
