2 Corinthians 5:7 says “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” Connect that to Hebrews 1:1 which says “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
These scriptures show us clearly that faith requires specific action by way of walking in it but also there are other aspects of living a life of faith. After pondering on and asking what the Holy Spirit would possibly have me to share, here are some points to focus on:
Talk – You must speak words that express your faith in God. It is not enough to just keep your faith in your head or in your heart. The Bible says, “If thou confess and believe…” (Romans 10)
Truth – Truth comes from the Word of God. To walk by faith in God and in what His Word says, you have to know what it says. The truth about who you are; the truth about life’s many challenges which include things like prosperity and health. Knowing the truth will set you free and when you are free, you can live a full life of faith. Jesus said in John 8:32 “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Trust – This may be the most important aspect of a life of faith. Without trust in God and in His Word, you won’t embrace the truth and you certainly won’t speak it out of your mouth. The key to building trust is spending time with the one you are seeking to trust. The more you know Him, the more you trust Him.
Throw – That seems a bit silly doesn’t? Alone, the word “throw” doesn’t even seem applicable to this text but what are you throwing? Caution. Throw caution to the wind when you decide to live a life of faith. The cautious will never be able to fully benefit from a life of faith. Caution can cause fear unless you are being led by the Spirit. It takes faith in something unseen to step out on a promise from God. Don’t be cautious when it comes to God. Just trust and obey which leads me to the final T….
Teamwork – The Holy Spirit was sent by Jesus after His death and resurrection to lead and guide us in life. However, we must cooperate with Him. Teaming up with the Holy Spirit by listening to His direction and allowing Him to guide us is a step of faith in itself.
Prayerfully consider these three T’s as you consider and seek a deeper faith walk with the Lord.
