The walk of faith is not a leap in the dark. It is a walk that shows trust in God’s word, the written Word and the spoken word. Many Christians have lived their lives way below their privileges due to not adhering to God’s voice in their lives. Faith comes by hearing the word of God (Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.).
I’ve heard people say that the way God spells the word faith is ‘risk’. James said it first in James 2:20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?
The life of faith is characterised by taking risks, joyfully and with confidence that God’s word is revealed to our spirits. Once I hear God’s voice, it will not matter what others say, because God’s word will always be fulfilled if I act upon it, not just believe it and do nothing. If we act on what we believe God has revealed to us, His word will always work.
I encourage you to practice two things; first, to know God’s word. Study the bible, both Old and New Testaments with an emphasis on the New Testament. Second, spend time with God, where you do more listening than talking. When you go to pray, give God time to speak to your spirit. Don’t put your request before God and leave without first quieting yourself before Him so He can speak to your spirit. Once you hear His voice, act upon it even if it does not make sense to your human brain.
Faith is acting on God’s word.
