COMMITTING TO ACTION
Matthew 8:13 “Go your way, and as you have believed, so let it be done for you.”
Miracles never happen just through meditation – but with mighty action! Read carefully in the Gospels the words of Jesus and notice the verbs. Follow, go, seek, ask, knock. The walk of faith is not merely the serene, silent, spiritual, unspeaking stroll of a holy man in the stillness of the sunrise or the secret silence of the sunset.
Faith is the mental activity that draws God into our mind and imagination until a passion begins to inflame our wills, motivating us to action!
It is then that the commitment is made. What is a commitment? It is entering into an honorable contract, pledging oneself before the problems are solved. Every commitment generates a new set of problems. And if we waited until we saw solutions to problems before we made the commitment, we would obviously not be walking the walk of faith!
It is for that reason that commitment - in the things of God, in marriage, interpersonal relationships, devotion and dedication to career goals, or the fulfillment of a project - becomes self-inspiring.
Walk the walk of faith. Make a fresh commitment to God that you are ready to take the plunge. Ask Him to give you the push that you need. Trust Him and together you’ll be successful.
