God is moved by what we DO - in #Faith !
If our action is not borne by Faith, God is not moved by it(Hebrews 11:6), if our Faith is not made visible by our action God is not moved either! Faith and action combine to move God. He wants to SEE that we #TRUST Him because knowing is not enough! Our Faith-borne action also makes #God visible to people. God is #JehovahJireh because we and others can SEE what He provides! So He wants to SEE that we trust Him by our ACTION! And He wants to reward our Faith!
Solomon gave an offering and He moved God, not because of the animals he sacrificed. He got the attention of God with His sacrifice but he touched the heart of God when he sacrificed his desires for service!
David showed his Faith when he took on (action) Goliath in the Name of God, sacrificing his own life!
Abraham placed (action)his son on the altar and altered the course of his destiny and the generations that came through him FOREVER!
Judah sacrificed (action)his life (Gen 44:18-34, specifically Verse 33) and though the birthright was Joseph's, he prevailed (1Chronicles 5:2)!
(I have always wondered how Judah the unknown, "usurped" (for lack of a better word) Joseph the favourite!) The woman with the issue of blood would have died with it if she didn't reach out (action) to touch Jesus' garment!
Our action can be in words or in works, God wants to SEE our Faith! Our action is what makes our Faith visible! Our action gives a face to our Faith!
Every miracle wrought by Jesus was a reward for faith! If you read through the miracles of Jesus Christ, it looked like someone went to the bank where they didnt save a dime, got a withdrawal form, wrote what they wanted, passed it to the cashier and they were given the amount they wrote; some even got more!
We don't deserve anything! - QUICK DIGRESSION -
[ A lot of the people Jesus healed only believed Christ had a healing power, the didn't necessarily have Faith in God! Thats why ANYONE can become wealthy, the difference is do you have access to eternity?
So if you are worried about why a non-believer is richer than a Christian, your focus is wrong!
To God, money is like rain, anyone can get wet! - 5 hours ago
