Faith is the key to daily victories and the process of faith expression begins with what you see. As you see it you begin to think it and as you think deeper and deeper you naturally become stronger in your utterance.
There is a connection between your eyes, your mind, your mouth, and your feet. When your eyes see it, your mind will think about it and them your mouth will begin to speak it. And you know, your utterances have the power to terminate stagnation. You can never be stagnated while speaking. People who speak will always end up at the peak because they are always on the move. It is what you say that supplies speed, strength and motion to your feet. So, your utterance is the fuel to your feet.
But beyond that, you must begin to take steps. So, the fourth expression of faith is action. And action means taking steps contrary to your physical situations or circumstances. The devil is a coward, he keeps telling you from afar off, “Don’t take that step, don’t write that exam, you will fail!” But nothing threatens him like your action. So, if you have been planning, talking and thinking of starting a business, go and start! If satan tells you, “Don’t start that business, you will fail”, start first and let it fail. If it fails the first time, rise up and start again. Those who fear will fall, but those who act will stand.
Action is God’s wisdom for the final possession of your inheritance. The woman with the issue of blood got her miracle just by action. After she heard of Jesus, she said in her heart, “If I may but touch the helm of his garment, I shall be made whole.” And as she said that, she began to take steps. Despite her weakness, she pressed through the crowd and touched the hem of His garment and Jesus said to her, “Be it unto you according to your faith.”
Also, in Mark chapter 2, there were four men who brought their friend that was sick of palsy to where Jesus was. But because there was no space at the door, they had to carry their friend up to the top of the house and let him down through the roof. And the Bible says, “When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the sick of the palsy, son thy sins be forgiven thee.” Nobody sees your faith without your action. It is the steps you take that prove to God that you believe His word. If for instance, you are looking for a job, stop sitting down at home, get out to where jobs are. If you want a promotion, work hard on your job. If you want a financial blessing, practice giving. Things don’t just happen, they happen because somebody is working them.
Nothing works until you work it. No matter the opposition on your way, you can force your way out of poverty and stagnation by your action. The only thing that threatens the devil in the school of faith, is your action. When you start moving, satan will start clearing off your way. When you move, God also begins to move towards you. “Draw near unto the Lord and He will draw near unto you.”
Mediate on these: 1 Samuel 2:3, James 1:6-7
