James 2:20, NKJV
But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?
The difference between a dream and a wish is that a wish is something you hope will happen, but a dream is something you put actions behind. Today's Scripture says that faith without works is dead. You can wish you could go to college, wish for a job, or wish for a better car, but wishing is not going to get you there. You have to put the work in to make it happen. The people who succeed don't always have the most talent, education, or opportunities. Many times, they simply want it more than others.
I want to light a fire in you today. You have to go after what God has for you. Being passive and indifferent will keep you from your destiny. When you make up your mind that you're going to do something, God will breathe on your efforts and give you strength that goes beyond your natural ability. It's not just willpower; it's the blessing of God helping you. But it kicks in when God sees you making the effort.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for the dreams that You've given me and for the gifts and talents You have entrusted me with. Help me stir up my faith and let the passion become a flame that takes action. I'm going to take steps to grow the gift You gave me and trust You to breathe on my efforts. In Jesus' Name, Amen
