believing is “doing” your faith
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken we also believe, and therefore speak
2 Corinthians 4:13

Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional For Wednesday 15th December 2021

Many say they believe and don’t do anything, but when you truly believe, you act. That’s what faith does it’s the response or action you take on the basis of your believing. When you say you “believe,” it’s not passive but active “believing” is a word of action it’s actually “doing” your faith. That’s why the Bible says, “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone” (James 2:17).
Faith requires a corresponding action you prove your faith by your actions. “Believe” is “pisteuÛ” in Greek, which means to demonstrate your faith to act your faith. Whatever it is that you believe about Jesus Christ is revealed in your actions. The Word, as it’s given to us in the Scriptures, can be trusted. But for it to be effective in your life, you have to do what it says.
Jesus said in John 14:15, “If you love me, keep my Word.” The Word of God is for doing. James 1:22-25 puts it in a nutshell: “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.”
Acting the Word is where the power is that’s what profits you: “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house and it fell: and great was the fall of it” (Matthew 7:24-27).


Holy Father, I thank you for your presence and glory in my life. Thank you for the Holy Spirit who lives in me and teaches me your Word, by which my faith is active and producing results always. I’m a doer of the Word your Word prevails in and through me today, for your glory, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
