Action Movies are one of my favorite collections. They ignite the feeling of satisfaction and fun because things happen. As believers, we also have not been called to a PASSIVE Faith but an ACTIVE one. Our Faith should make things happen.
Many times I’m amazed by the words of Jesus. In Mark 9:23b, we are told of how God has greatly enriched us through faith to do the
impossible. “All things are possible to him that believes”. In other words, there is no limit to the extent of exploits we can do as believers, in our generation.
But according to James 2:17-18, it is not enough to know that we can do all things, we must also take the necessary steps. “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone”.
Nehemiah was a Man with a Great Vision, who had faith in God and
followed his vision through to execution. Prov. 16:3 encourages us to
commit our works unto the Lord, so that our thoughts can be established.
God expects us to
empower our faith through our actions, in order to unlock several doors of possibilities. So whenever we refuse to take action, those doors remain closed.
Another lesson from Nehemiah was his ability to maintain good relationships. He knew how to
convey the vision in his heart to those who were to support him. We also need relationships based on the right attitude to achieve those great plans God has placed in our hearts.
In conclusion, now is the time to step-out and empower your FAITH with your WORKS. Don’t sit still. It’s not enough to say you just believe, Take Action Now!
