Have Faith – Part 5

Youthful Living with PASTOR MOYO M
FAITH sets us in motion. By nature, faith stimulates action that leads to production of tangible results of whatever one hopes

to achieve.
It is, therefore, very awkward for a person who has faith to remain motionless or inactive.
It is inevitable that people with faith should always be dynamic and on the move.
Therefore, to have faith is not only to have the desire to do something but also to take practical steps towards achieving the desired goal, regardless of what it takes.
Unfortunately, faith has been mistaken for a passive anticipation like replacement for hard work, creativity and innovation.
In actual sense, it should be the basis for boldness to embark on faith based action, creativity and innovations.
Faith gives an added advantage in terms of creativity because it goes beyond the box of human limitation and draws from the mystery of infiniteness of God.
Due its nature to transcend human limitations, faith makes things possible.
Faith, in some instances, requires more than just prayer and receiving declarations because it calls for action to accompany it.
St. Thomas More expressed this very well when he prays, “Give us, good Lord, the grace to work for the things we pray for.”
Faith should be expressed through prayer and also doing the actual work that would bring about positive change.
In this case faith sets us for extraordinary fruit of our actions. Faith and action are inseparable companions.
James 1:17 and 26 says, “In the same way faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. As a body without spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.”
The quotation indicates that faith is a living thing whose presence is evident through action.
Faith sets us in motion towards an action oriented life, a vital recipe for development.
