Put action to it...


2 Timothy 2:15 in the Message version of the Bible states the following,"Concentrate on doing your best for God, work you won't be ashamed of, laying out the truth plain and simple."
 Pretty straightforward don't you think. A lot of folks claim to be faith people in public, but in private they never open their bibles, talk to God, or meditate the Scriptures... Then when trouble comes they fall flat on their face. 
The Bible also says in James 2:20 that, "faith without corresponding actions is dead". In other words, It's time to put some action to our words... 
What can I do to get started, you may ask? 

First you need to study the Word of God... How? Read it, listen to it on CD, memorize it, meditate on it... These are all ways to get God's Word in you, and working through you... 
Second thing you can do is go to where the Word is being preached and taught... Don't forget what Romans 10:17 says , "Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God"... You belong in a faith filled church, and need to show up when the doors are open... There is nothing like setting under the anointing of the Word as it is being preached to cleanse you and refire you with faith...
And the third thing is start confessing the Word of God. Find the promise of God that covers your situation and start declaring out loud what God says about you... and that it is done now, in Jesus name...
It is time to get serious about God's word, because it will totally change your life for good if you let it... Peace, Karl
