The title of this article is the name of a book I started yesterday. It was written by Frederick K.C. Price, D.D.
My mum gave me this book last year but I never got around to reading it. Within the next 40 days, I plan to read 5 books by Gods grace.
I chose to start with this one because I have never truly put my faith to work and I wanted to know how to.
I’ll be sharing as I learn from the book till I’m done reading it and I’ll also be doing that for subsequent books I read.
Yesterday I learnt a few things, from the part 1 of the book;
Believing is the starting point. If I stop at just believing, I will get nothing from it.
Faith is acting on what I believe. I need to act on my belief. If I believe alone, it will not change my circumstance.
Faith and believe are two sides of the same coin. They must work together.
James 1:22 – be doers of the word and not hearers only.
Faith requires action. This action can be speaking, doing something, going somewhere.
Believing alone is NOT ENOUGH! We have to arise! Get up! Do something! Rebuke the storm so there will be great calm.
Have you been reacting in fear because of situations around you?
I have been. I just believe God is interested in me paying my house rent and school fees. Behind this believe, I thought about asking for help or taking a loan. This was the action to get it done but it was out of fear.
The results we get are based on our actions.
Matthew 6: 33 -“Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”
The word “seek” in this verse is an action word. You have to do something about the kingdom of God. Believing is not enough.
How are you seeking His kingdom?
I am doing this by reading books that will help me understand, listening to messages, praying to understand, asking questions from people established in the faith and in turn sharing what I have learnt and found out.
