“For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also,” James 2:26 (KJV).
Having faith does not mean, I can just sit around doing nothing. Not only is that counterproductive, but faith is an action word. Faith is always in motion. James 2: 18 (KJV) states, “Yea, a man may say, thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.”
So, what is faith? Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) tells us, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
As children of God, the prospects for our lives are as sure as the promises of God.
We can be confident that God is over all things and He loves His children. Nothing is too hard for God. Hebrews 10:23 (KJV) encourages us to, “...hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;).” God will keep His Word. His provisions are far greater than any challenges that life will present.
Put your faith in God and trust Him.
Move forward with courage and in obedience to the Word of God. “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:” Philippians 1:6 (KJV).
“Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.” Ephesians 6:16 (KJV).
