Prac­ti­cal faith

The Freeman - - OPINION -

I needed a grade of at least 85 to pass my Chem­istry sub­ject. Hon­estly, this was not one of my fa­vorite sub­jects. I prayed hard. I had faith. I ex­pected a mir­a­cle.

I flunked the test.

Look­ing back it was silly of me to think that God would let me pass the sub­ject with­out work­ing and study­ing hard. Back then, I hon­estly thought faith was all I needed.

I be­lieve God al­lows us to go through ex­pe­ri­ences where faith is all we are hold­ing on to. But I also think God wants us to be moved by our faith. Faith should be ac­com­pa­nied by works. Yes, there will be times when we don't have any­thing but faith, when we can say to this moun­tain, get up and move. But if you are fac­ing a moun­tain and you have a shovel, go ahead and pray. But start dig­ging.

God won't per­form mir­a­cles where you can per­form the or­di­nary. God has equipped you for the bat­tle. Let faith move you. Be­lieve and just do it.
