Faith in Practice

In His Presence: Ecclesiastes 11:1-4

The question of faith as it relates to stewardship is, do we believe that if we invest in that which is eternal that God will honor and bless us in the way He sees fit? We must believe that kingdom investments are not lost.

In order for faith to work, it must be practiced. “Faith, if it has no works, is dead” (James 2:17). Faith is not just believing that God can do what He says; faith is entrusting yourself to Him so He can do His work through you! Proverbs 11:24 says: “There is one who withholds what is justly due, and yet it results only in want.”

We must persevere in faith. Scripture sets forth the principles we are to live by, and God can impress things on our hearts about how He wants us to serve Him as stewards. Don’t let circumstances detour you from faith. Just because it looks like things might not work out, don’t stop trusting God. Don’t let doubt detour you. When doubt is holding you back, take it to Jesus, just like the man who told Jesus: “I do believe; help my unbelief” (Mark 9:24). And Jesus healed his son.

Don’t let people detour you from faith in God. Others may try to discourage you and tell you that you need to give up on Him, but if you trust, God will keep walking with you. Don’t let fear detour you from your faith. Don’t be afraid to trust God’s Word and obey it.

One Minute Please

God sowed the seed of salvation in our hearts, and we can sow seeds of faith in the world.
