Take It

You will never feel more alive than when you take a step of faith.

When you make the call,
Say the words,
Reach out,
Run ahead,
Or slow down.

You do it before you see results,
without assurance of success,
and not knowing where it will take you.

It is a step of faith.

In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. James‬ ‭2‬:‭17‬ NIV

The reverse is true as well- every time you let an opportunity pass to put your faith into action, it dies a little bit.

If you are reading this, you are not dead. Neither is your faith.
Put it into action.

How is your faith?

What step of obedience do you need to take today?

Cautious Living

I was afraid I might disappoint you, so I found a good hiding place and secured your money. Here it is, safe and sound down to the last cent.’

“The master was furious. ‘That’s a terrible way to live! It’s criminal to live cautiously like that!
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭25:25 MSG‬‬

This verse says it’s criminal to live cautiously with God given-investments.

When God invests in you, puts something in your hand, in your heart or in your personality, He expects you to do something with it.

The third servant in the story took what his master gave him and “dug a hole and buried it” (vs16).

What has God invested in you?

What have you buried in fear ?

Are you growing your gifts?

What does it look like to use and multiply what God has invested in you?

Beth Moore says “Sometimes, we can protect ourselves right out of our calling.”

Cautious Living is a crime in God’s eyes.

He loves you passionately and expects you to boldly put to work the visions, gifts and callings that he has given you.

You may be asking God to give you more…but he may be asking, “What are you doing with what I’ve already given you?”

Faith is a Verb

Faith is not a feeling.
Faith is a believing.

The type of believing leads to action.

A faith that is silent in word and deed is no faith at all.

Do something.

Do the thing that faith is prompting and fear is resisting.

“What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions?
‭‭James‬ ‭2:14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

What is God challenging you to do?

What fear is stopping you?

God is bigger than your fear and has a purpose for your faith.

He needs you to be who He has called you to be and do what He has asked to do.

It isn’t about you, it is about who your obedience will impact.

It is time to your faith into action.
