EXPRESS THE FAITH YOU’VE GOT!
(Your Faith Is The Victory, So Put It To Work!)
TO THE BIBLE
1 John 5:4-5 AMP C “For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith. Who is it that is victorious over [that conquers] the world but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God….”
Life can be tough and can be full of challenges. However, Jesus said in John 16:33, “…In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” It makes no difference what the situation is; always, take advantage of God’s extraordinary power in overcoming life’s adversities by expressing your faith. Your faith is the victory that overcomes the world. However, unexpressed faith won’t work. James 2 verses 17 and 26 let us know that faith without corresponding action is of no effect: “So then, as the body without the spirit is dead, also faith without actions is dead“ (James 2:26 GNB).
You express your faith in words and actions. An example of faith being expressed is the account in Mark 10:46-52 of blind Bartimaeus; he repeatedly cried out to Jesus for healing. You’d have expected the Master to heal him right away, but that wasn’t what happened. When Jesus eventually came face-to-face with the blind man, He asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?” The Lord could see that the man was blind, yet He needed him to act or express his faith. Jesus always wants people to express their faith. Thus, when the blind man said to Him, “I want to receive my sight,” the Lord went ahead and healed him.
Crying to God or complaining about your situation won’t help; you should express your faith instead! Jesus said if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you can achieve anything; nothing shall be impossible to you (Matthew 17:20). And you already have faith, for the Bible says He’s given every one of us the measure of faith (Romans 12:3). Act on the Word. When you pray, rejoice, knowing you’ve received. That’s faith!
In Christ, I’ve got the victory; I’ve overcome the world and all its systems. God leads me in a perpetual victory parade. Through me, the knowledge of Christ spreads everywhere, and my triumphs of faith bring the exquisite fragrance of His glory into every place I go. I’m guided and inspired by God’s wisdom to fulfil His perfect will for me, as I delve further into His Word, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
