Complete Faith – Beloved Women – July 20, 2020
READ: “You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by his works.” (James 2:22 ESV)
TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT: Abraham demonstrated his faith in God with his actions. God gave him instruction to sacrifice his son and he was obedient to do exactly what was asked of him.
It’s one thing to believe in God, but a new level of faith comes when you put action behind it, no matter how crazy it may sound. I’m sure if Abraham told his friends what God was requiring of him, they would have thought he was insane to sacrifice the one thing Abraham and Sarah had believed for; yet he obeyed God’s commands.
I desire us to have our faith completed through works of obedience, no matter the circumstance. It may sound crazy to others, but if we stand firm to God’s Word and what He speaks to us, we will see our faith rise to a new level.
PRAY: Father, I pray for Your daughters to be complete in their faith through their actions. I ask You to equip them to be obedient with what You have entrusted in their hands. Show them the way to go and bless them with each step they take. In Jesus Christ’s Name, I pray, Amen.
REFLECT: Will you choose to be obedient with the instructions God has given you?
