Faith + Works = Blessings

James 2:17-24 – Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.  But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe — and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?  21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? 22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? 23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God. 24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.

One of the revelations of these few scriptures is that God cannot bless what you do not do.  Once man starts working toward what God shows him to do, power, provision, and the blessings of God are drawn to him like a magnet, empowering him to overcome obstacles in his path, to finish his destiny.

    Thanks for the encouragement Brad!
    I’m guilty of wanting to see the provision and blessing before I step out into what I think God wants me to do. I believe that most of us are afraid to really step out and do what God has shown us because we fear that God won’t come through for us. We are not secure in God and in our relationship with Him. I’m learning that the more I allow His Word to transform my thinking about who He is, the more I can begin to trust Him and be willing to take those steps of faith.
    It’s a progressive journey of love and trust!

      Thank you for writing in. I think one of our problems is that we have let failure train us so long that we have indoctrinated it in our walk with God. It has destroyed Faith. The enemy knows that it is Faith that pleases God and causes destinies to be moved and aligned in our lives. Keep going Sandi! You will get there! Grace to you!
