We are talking about faith! In our podcast today we will see how God desires for his Word to be active and doing a work in us. Once we see it is his will as revealed in his Word, then we can believe it and act on it, seeing the results of God’s Word coming to pass in our lives.
Listen to the podcast:
First, faith comes by the hearing of God’s Word.
Romans 10:17 says, “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.”
Second, faith is to be used.
James 2:17 (ESV) says, “So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”
Now we are going to look at another Biblical Truth today we can grow in faith in and apply it so that we will see results.
Hebrews 4:12 (WEB)
12 For the word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and is able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
The Word of God is living and it’s active. It’s not just words in a book. His Word is living and it’s active. We must renew our minds to think inline with Scripture. That’s how we move forward and grow. You can’t grow with God unless you agree with him. Amos 3:3 says, “How can two walk together unless they be agreed.
What do we know about God’s Word. It’s living and it’s active. We agree with God on this right?
Now let’s look at another Scripture regarding His Word.
1 Thessalonians 2:13 (WEB)
13 For this cause we also thank God without ceasing, that, when you received from us the word of the message of God, you accepted it not as the word of men, but, as it is in truth, the word of God, which also works in you who believe.
What do we know about God’s Word as it relates to those who receive it and believe it? It works in them. The Word of God is at work in them.
If you honor the Word of God for what it is, His Word, and believe his word is living and active, what’s the result? It’s living and active, it’s at work in you!
What is it doing in you? It’s working! I want you to get ahold of this because it will help you. According to Scripture, when we receive his Word and honor it by believing it is his Word, then it becomes active, living and at work in us.
Is the Word of God working in you? If you receive it as His Word and believe it, it is. This is God’s truth. His Word is working in you!
I’m so glad because sometimes we don’t see God’s word working in our lives but according to Scripture, it is! Isn’t that good news!
So we have heard his Word today. Do we believe it? Yes we do. Now how can we act on it? We can confess it’s true for us. We can take action and by faith say, “The Word of God is living, active and doing a work in me!”
Wha’s one thing we know it’s doing? It’s producing faith! If we continue to take in God’s Word and believe it, then it will continue to live, be active and be at work in us producing faith! Amen.
Let’s stay with it. Let’s be happy about it. Let’s be expecting and rejoicing that his Word is at work in us.
Blessings in Christ,
