How Faith Works

Is faith working in your life? Understand faith is action. It works, taking action to do God's will. Faith works through us. God can do anything that He chooses to do without us. However, God has chosen to work through us. Faith confesses, prays, and does the the will of God. As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also (James 2:26).

Some may think that faith does nothing, and depends upon God to do everything. However, the Bible teaches that we are laborers together with God. It is God's will for faith to work through us. You may put a glove on your hand to do the work before you. The glove does not do the work alone, neither can it. The hand works through the glove. So, the faith of God acts through us.

Fate says, There is nothing that we can do. What will be, will be. Nothing we can do will make any difference. Faith speaks otherwise, I must act on the word of God. He has put it in my heart. He is working through me to the praise of his glory. I am a doer of the word. The Bible says, But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves (James 1:22).

Maybe you are in a situation where you are asking God to do something about it. Perhaps, you could pray like this. God, what would you have me to do? Faith acts on the word of God. It rises up to do something about it. That's how faith works.
