Faith in Action

Wait up! Before you rush off today, I need to remind you of something:
“God has a mission for you today!”

Are you ready for it?
Today, someone needs you.

Maybe you need to listen to someone
Maybe you need to encourage someone
Maybe you need to give someone a hug
Maybe you need to give someone some of your lunch
Maybe you need to notice someone
Maybe you need to be kind to someone
Maybe you need to speak life to someone
Maybe you just need to stand beside someone

That’s faith in action!
Read Matthew 5:16 here –



Wilfredo de Jess says, ‘Understanding can wait, but obedience cannot.’

We all go through seasons when we can’t see what God’s doing, or why. It’s really ok. Our God is kind, and so near to us, every second of every day. But He doesn’t owe us an explanation for what He does and doesn’t do, or for what He requires of us.

Just surrender to Him.

He knows all the answers to the questions you’re carrying. While you wait for Him to reveal more, enjoy spending your days saying yes to Jesus. Say with the psalmist in Psalm 131:1 (, and keep doing the next right thing.



Psalm 46:10 ( is pretty familiar: ‘Be still, and know that I am God!‘ In the original Hebrew, this verse carries the idea of relaxing, and loosening our grip.

In all your comings and goings and busy doings – could you ask God to increase your faith, so that you could relax your hold – loosen your grip – on what you’re trying to achieve?

You might be surprised to find that, when you loosen your grip on whatever you’re clutching and remember that really it’s God who holds All The Things, you’ll be more productive. Also, you’ll probably enjoy yourself more.



The psalmist says in Psalm 106:2 here:

This is a rhetorical question.
The obvious, implied answer is, ‘No one can!’

No matter how much we tried and tried and tried to express God’s greatness back to Him, we just never could. It’s a relief to know we don’t have to be able to grasp God’s eternal majesty and magnitude in order to earn His favour. In His enormous love, He just pours His favour out on us, anyway. What an awesome reason to praise Him, and put our faith in Him, and do all we can to joyfully love Him with our lives.
