Beyond Belief: Putting Faith into Action (James 2:26)

Spread the love

Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.

From the definition above, we can see that faith is not something that can be seen. And will also see that faith can produce things.

Faith is a gift everyone can possess if they put their mind to it. Everyone should desire to have faith and keep increasing in faith.

If you have faith as small as a muster seed, you can move mountains.

In this post, I will show you how to make your faith work for you.

“For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”

James 2:26

Faith comes from hearing

If you want your faith to grow, the first thing is to hear the word of God. You can hear the word of God by reading and meditating on what the Bible says.

You can also increase your faith by listening to preaching, music and hymns by others.

Faith inspires you to act

Whenever you hear stories in the Bible or testimonies of other people, they are meant to inspire you.

The stories are not there so that you will get excited, the stories are there so that they can inspire you to act and take action.

Result may vary

Sometimes, when we act in faith we do not get the result we desire. Well, this may be a result of God giving you something better but you couldn’t recognize it.

You might not get the exact result you want sometimes when practicing faith but you be assured that you will always get the best result even though it doesn’t look like it


Faith works and it will work for you if you follow the normal process. The process to make faith work for you is to hear the word of God, believe the word of God that you hear and take action.

It would be best if you started practising your faith from today. It would help if you started now and start small.

For instance, you can use your faith to rebuke mild headaches, then move to use your faith to overcome serious sickness, then you can move to the level of using your faith to heal others.

Faith works and you should start trying it from today. When you live by faith, you will become limitless.
