“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only” (James 1:22).
Some people have such a struggle. They say they are trying to get faith, or else they are trying to believe. But all that is necessary is just to act on what God says.
I use the phrase “acting on God’s Word” rather than “have faith” or “believe,” because that’s exactly what faith is!
Someone once asked Raymond T. Richey, a man mightily used of God in the healing ministry, “What is faith?”
Richey replied, “Faith is just acting on God’s Word.”
Smith Wigglesworth would say, “Faith is an act.”
That’s what faith is – acting on God’s Word.
Confession: I am a doer of the Word. I gain knowledge of God’s Word. I hear His Word. Then I act accordingly. I act on God’s Word!
