James 2:14-17. “14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”
If you have the faith to believe God is calling you to do something within your life, then have the faith to invest in what he is calling you to do.
How many times must I hear about God leading people to do things, but they become lackadaisical, and don’t do anything with their call. Don’t worry everyone I am also speaking from personal experience of my past. When the opportunity comes for God to use them with their convictions, they over look it, forgetting the convictions of the Holy Spirit.
We have to imagine God as a general in command, and realize that one command can determine a life or death. Continuously we are at war, and we need to be working out every muscle to prepare for when the time comes. All it takes is one bullet to take us down, who knows if your faithfulness will be the shield that God uses to help another have another day within their faith. “ Shield of faith.” It’s hard to see how God works in our everyday circumstances, how one faithful act is equating to another persons life, but better be safe than sorry.
I see so many people who live apologetic lives for the Father, stop being sorry, starting repenting, turn your life around, and obey!
It’s really not that complicating, killing the flesh is.
Give God the complications, you just take the orders.
