“The just shall live by faith” (Rom. 1:17).
The faith life is the most beautiful life in the world! It is the life God wants us to live, and the walk God wants us to walk (2 Cor. 5:7).
Let both your words and your actions agree. If you talk faith, you must walk faith -you must act faith. Your actions and your words must agree that you are a believer. It won’t do any good to talk faith if you’re not going to act faith.
And if it were somehow possible to act faith without talking faith, that wouldn’t do any good, either, because your words and your actions must agree.
Some people declare one minute, “I’m trusting God to meet my needs.” Then, with the next breath, they say, “Well, it looks like I’m going to lose my car. I can’t make the payments.” One minute it sounds like they’re talking faith, but in a few moments their actions prove otherwise.
Some even quote God’s Word, saying, “I know the Lord said in Philippians 4:19, ‘But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.’ And I’m trusting Him to meet our needs – but it looks like we’ll have to have the phone taken out. We can’t pay the bill.”
They mentally agreed to the truth of this scripture, but they didn’t act as if it were so.
Start acting like God’s Word is true.
Confession: I live by faith – faith in the Word of the Living God. I act like His Word is true.
