Faith Inspires Action

Verse of the Day:  James 2:14          

What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds?     

Faith is a verb; it requires action on our part. Faith in God prompts us to do something, it moves us to share the love of God not only by word but also by deed with those in need. As our faith grows it is revealed in the presence of the fruit of the Spirit. Anyone can profess that they have faith but true faith is demonstrated by acts of love and kindness which demonstrate its genuineness. For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill His good purpose. (Philippians 2:13)

Lord, thank You for the love and kindness You show me every day. Likewise, let my faith in You be demonstrated not just by word but by showing love and kindness to others. Let my faith and good deeds go hand in hand as a testament of my love for You. Amen

Don’t You Give Up

Verse of the Day:  1 Kings 18:43-44 

“Go and look toward the sea”, he told his servant. And he went up and looked. There is nothing there,” he said. The seventh time the servant reported, “A cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising from the sea.”           

Even when you don’t see God working on your behalf He’s working. Even when you don’t feel God working for your good, He’s working. Keep trusting God, keep having faith in God, keep believing, keep hoping, keep praising Him and keep waiting for His favor no matter how long it takes for your prayers to be answered. God sees you and He hears you so don’t you give up. Praise God while you wait on Him even if it takes seven times or seven hundred times.

Dear Lord, Thank You for always being with me, even when I don’t see or feel You near me, I know that You are with me. Help me to stay strong when I am weak, help me to have faith in Your promises while I wait and help me to keep going when I feel like giving up. I need You in every moment of every day and I trust in You Lord. Amen
