Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
The Apostle James challenges us to understand the connection between faith and obedience. He writes in James 2:17 that faith without works is dead! In other words, we cannot have the unshakable faith we spoke of yesterday without obedience!
Developing steadfast trust takes time. Yes, we are born-again through simple childlike faith, but a growing knowledge of GOD and a deepening true confidence in Him keeps us convicted and also strengthens our faith in times of testing (trials).
Hebrews Chapter 11 shows us that obedience is critical to steadfast faith! Noah, never seeing rain, obeyed GOD and built the ark! Abraham left his home, his tribe, obeying GOD’S instructions through faith!
But without faith it is impossible to please Him.
Knowing and trusting GOD through His Son, YESHUA, experiencing His actual presence and living daily obediently are the two factors needed to develop an unshakable faith!
Let’s go to the Throne Room today and in prayer ask GOD to give you that unshakable faith! Yes! In Yeshua’s Name. Amen
With lots of prayers & love,
