Work It Out!

Faith is all it takes to become a living proof. But faith does not work without a working hand. Philippians 2:13 says, "Work out your salvation..." God is at work in you, He is carrying out His work in your life. But you have to work out what God is working in you for it to manifest physically. God works within, you work without. God puts in you the potential; you turn it into kinetic force through your motion and action.

Jesus said, "...What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them" (Mark 11:24). If you believe that you have received, then you start working it out. If you believe you will be great, you start working out your greatness now. There is a place for the work of faith. All our covenant fathers were men of faith but they were also workers.

Many people are busy working with their mouths; they are making great confessions, but they are not working with their hands. It takes a working hand to make faith work. In Hebrews 11:32-34 the Bible talks about men of faith like Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthae, David, Samuel, etc, who through faith wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire. But how did they express their faith? What did Barak do for instance? He took his weapons and fought against the Midianites. That was his faith. What did Samson do? He took the jawbone of an ass and killed 1,000 Philistines. David took five stones with a sling in his hand and confronted Goliath.

There is no cheap victory in life, every victory is worked out. If you truly believe, then work it out. Do something! Don't let any day pass by without you recording victory for that day. Determine to be an history maker and not a story teller. Be determined to make a mark! Add something new to your life! Work out your salvation; your dreams, your aspirations and visions. I know you have a vision to be very great but you must work it out.

Please note that I am not asking you to go looking for fame or striving for recognition. Remember, it is not a name that makes a man, it is a man that makes a name. So let the man in you do something that would earn you a place among men of faith. Let your work speak for you.

Faith will always work where there is a working hand. Jesus the greatest man that ever lived, was a worker. He said, "I work and my father worketh hitherto." So, as you get out to your work today, put your mind in it, be innovation and creative.

When you work, everything will work for you.

Meditate on these: John 9:4, 14:11
