FAITH ALONE IS NOT ENOUGH
Abram traveled through the land as far as the site of the great tree of Moreh at Shechem. At that time the Canaanites were in the land. The Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your offspring I will give this land.” So he built an altar there to the Lord, who had appeared to him.
Genesis 12:6-7 NIV
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen. God foretold Abram before his name changed to be Abraham the things that will happen in his future and future of his descendants. He promised Abraham a land, he land that he gave him and his descendants forever.
Here God was not talking about spiritual land somewhere in the spiritual realm. God was talking about the actual peace of land in the Middle East of this present world. The Bible says, "Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure, Isaiah 46:10." The Eagle prophet Isaiah talked about this God who declare our end from the beginning. he says things that are not yet done, and make sure all that He says come to pass.
The promise that He gave to Abraham came to pass but there was a part that Abraham needed to play. He needed to trust God and wait for His promise to come to pass in his life. Many times we receive promises from God and we think that God will do everything for us. We think that we will never face opposition because God said that something will happen in their lives.
This morning, I want you to know that faith alone is not enough you need to put actions in order to receive your promise. You need to pray for your promise, discipline yourself and make sure that you wait for the Lord to fulfill it. Make sure you don't share your dreams with your dream killers and ask the Lord to bring the right people in your life who will help take you to the next level.
Make sure you pray for your promise, and make sure you study all things you need to know in the area that you think God is taking you. If you feel that God is calling you to be a doctor without borders then make sure you do well in medical school that you may become excellent doctor in the near future and help many who will need your help. We are going to continue with this Faith Series tomorrow by continue exploring the life of the Father of Faith, Abraham.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, help me to put action into my faith while I'm waiting for your promise for my life to be fulfilled. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
