Putting Faith Into Action

Updated: Feb 27

"How long will you wait before you begin to take possession of the land that the Lord, the God of your ancestors, has given you? Appoint three men from each tribe. I will send them out to make a survey of the land." – Joshua 18:3-4 NIV Joshua seemed impatient, even exasperated. Several tribes had taken possession of the land they had been promised, but others had not acted yet. Why had they failed to claim their inheritance? What was preventing them from experiencing victory? Perhaps they were overwhelmed by the size of the challenge or discouraged by the obstacles they faced. They may have felt inadequate as if they did not have enough resources. They may have lacked confidence. Perhaps they were waiting for a breakthrough or development. They may have been hoping that the challenge would become easier or that their adversaries might give up. Or they simply did not have faith in God. Joshua told them that the time had come to lay aside their excuses and put their faith into action. They needed to move forward and take possession of the land God had given them. Think about the parallels in your life. God has given you exceedingly great promises. He had promised to bless and protect you, to give you victory in every area. You may be waiting, afraid, or feel inadequate or unsure of yourself. The obstacles may seem overwhelming. These are times to be like Joshua, believing God’s promises, banishing fear and doubt, and boldly taking action. Today, ask God to help you move forward. Trust Him. Put your faith into action. Don’t wait any longer. Believe Him for victory. Believe that all things are possible for those who believe put your faith into action. Thank Him for victory. In Jesus’ name.
