Faith Works!

I am trying my faith, more accurately, I am exercising it! I am believing God for something, and like all of us, I have a hope that it will come to pass. However, I am not waiting to see if it will come to pass before I move. I have already moved to expect the result, preparing for it to come to pass. Let me illustrate it like this: I once heard a story that accurately conveys what I am trying to say.

"There were two farmers who prayed for rain in a drought stricken land. The first farmer would get up early and look to the skies to see if there was any sign of rain. The second got up early and ploughed his fields and planted his seed, and prepared it for the rain that he was expecting."

This is what I'm saying I have believed God and I'm starting to plough my field, because I know the rain is coming. This is faith in action. Faith works itself out in my life by the way I act/respond towards it! If I have faith I will act on it based on the sure promise of God. If I don't, ... well, I will wait and see. "If," "maybe", or "let me see" are not words in the book of faith. Faith acts when there is no cloud in the sky that even remotely hints at a sign of rain.

Here is the principle:
You cannot prepare your field when the rain comes, it will be too late then! If you are trusting the Lord for something in your life. Prepare your field now! Don't wait to see it before you move. Move NOW! Prepare, gird up your loins and great ready for the windows of heaven to open and your rain to fall!

Are you waiting like the first farmer to see the rain and then move or are you like the wise farmer who acted on his faith and prepared himself for what God was going to pour into his life

agree 100% plus about stepping out in faith by trusting our Lord. I love the subject of faith. Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God. The Word of God opens our ears to the supernatural plan and provision of God. The spirit of faith can be heard and seen. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God...Hebrews 11:3. And with out faith we cannot please God. Faith in action opens the door to the power of God. We walk by faith not by what we see around us, but by every word that God promised, we receive through the spirit and we must see through the spirit. faith moves God, moves mountains. Faith won't move anything until it moves us. Faith its action. Unfortunally faith cannot grow in the heart of His children if their are not feeding on His Word. Faith opens the door to the power of God. God has designed that the just shall live by faith. And if the devil can get the children of God out of the arena of faith, he'll whip us every time. We must believe, receive it in our spirit before it manifestes, to see His mighty glory. Thank you for your great message. You are a bless to me. Cu soon. God blessxxooo
