Faith walkers walk with Jesus. Faith walkers have been joined to the Lord through a living union. Faith walkers move only as their Lord moves them. They go where their Lord goes, say what their Lord says, and do what their Lord does. Faith walkers move in unity and harmony with their Lord.
What moves you? God’s way is the way of faith not force. What are you looking to as your source, strength, and means of accomplishing the task? Are you looking to Jesus as the author and finisher of your faith (Hebrews 12:2)? Jesus is the only one who can begin the good work, and He alone can bring it to completion. The Apostle Paul boldly declared, “I can do all things”. And then he added, “through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). Christ alone was the source of his strength! Which explains why Paul had such an effective life in spite of all his difficulties. In 2 Corinthians 2:1-5 we are told “that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.” Are you relying entirely on the power of God’s Spirit or on your own human strength and ability? “For it is not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit says the Lord.” (Zechariah 4:6) Are you a living demonstration of the power of God? (1 Corinthians 2:4) Are you, by faith, allowing Christ to work through you? Remember, faith without works is dead. (James 2:17)
Where there is genuine faith in the Lord, there will be the corresponding works of the Lord. As you consider your past, is there evidence of God’s working through your life. If you are allowing the Lord to work through your life, the difference should be evident. When the Lord is at work, He always makes a difference, a lasting difference for the better. Christ get’s the job done and He always does it right! As Jesus said, “If you believe, you will see the glory of God” (John 11:40). The glory of God is, among other things, the manifest presence and power of God in your life. So if you believe—simply trust and obey Him—you too will see God at work in your very own life. And that’s good, very good—for you, as well as all those around you!
