Practical Faith That Works

practical faith that works

To become a giant is to follow the steps of a giant. You cannot have the faith of Thomas and expect the blessings of Abraham (If you are children of Abraham you will do the works of Abraham).

What is faith?

  • Faith is not waiting; faith is a doing or moving force.
  • Faith is putting God’s word to work.
  • Faith is not cheap talk, but hard work.
  • Faith is not mystical; faith is practical. It’s acting in line with what you believe.
  • Faith is believing the invincible and daring the impossible.
  • Faith is the substance of things not seen and evidence of things hoped for (Hebrews.11:1).

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves (James.1:22; NKJV).

What Makes Faith Works?

To be spiritual simply means to be scriptural. Spirituality is living according to the dictates of the scripture. Obedience to scriptural injunctions is the gateway fulfillment. Faith without work is dead; faith is impotent without obedience. Obedience is a sign of trust. The fact you’re obeying is a sign that you believe. “Demonstration” is the keyword here. Show your love for God by obeying His commandments.

Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock (Mathew.7:24-25).

Nothing mystical in serving God; there is simplicity in Christ that makes life easier. The Bible is a covenants book. The word “testament” is a Greek word that simply means “covenant.” The first and second testaments mean the first and second covenants. So, we have the book of covenants (both first and second covenants are applicable, Jesus did not come to destroy the law but to fulfill It). All you need to do is to play your part of the deal and let God play His part. The scripture cannot be broken. It works!

What the devil does is to make the word seem too simple to believe. It might look too simple, but that’s your way out of struggle. Whatever He tells you to do, do it – even when it looks foolish (John.2:7).

But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ (2.Cor.11:3).

(See Deuteronomy.28:1-3 & James.1:25)

Biblical Examples of Men Who Put Faith To Work

(1). Abraham – The secret behind Abraham’s generational blessings is prompt obedience. Every time God told him to do something he acted immediately. When God told him to circumcise all males in his generation, he responded promptly; when God told him to get out of his kindred and fling to an unknown place, he started the journey early in the morning; when God told him to offer Isaac (his only long-awaited son) as a sacrifice he obeyed. As a result, God made him a symbol of generational blessings. The blessings we are enjoying today are the blessings of Abraham of which we are connected through Jesus Christ (Galatians.3:14).

(2). Jesus – Jesus is our perfect example. He submitted to the will of His father, following His instructions, knowing when to walk secretly or openly. As a result of obedience, he was enthroned with a name that’s above all names in heaven, in the earth, and under the earth (Philippians.2:5-10). Any negative and unwanted thing that has a name is compelled to bow to the name of Jesus. Thank of it: sickness is a name; poverty is a name; failure is a name; marital siege is a name; stagnation is a name; oppression is a name. They must all bow to the power and authority in the name of Jesus when you use it – don’t just call the name, use it. However, you cannot be committed today and not be decorated tomorrow.

(3). The 3 Hebrew boys – Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego would rather die than to bow to the golden image of the king. They saw their God worth dying for than to bow to strange God. And God saw this dogged determination in them, His heartbeat was saying “I must rescue my children today.” They were not pastors, God called them His servants. You don’t have to become a pastor to obey God. Just have a heart for God irrespective of your calling and God will deliver you.

(4). Daniel – Daniel would rather die than to defy himself with a portion of the king’s meat (Daniel.1:8). He prayed three times a day despite the ganged up against him. As result, he was relevant in six kingdoms. Every divine-content-person is all-time relevant. You are the solution that the world needs. A divine content individual is fit anywhere. We carry a universal gospel, it works the same way everywhere.

(5). Joseph – By choice, Joseph reigned. Because he knew where he was going, he wouldn’t allow his destiny to be trashed in Potiphar’s house, he knew that Potiphar’s house was only a passage; he had seen himself self on the throne. You can’t have where you are going and not package yourself dangerously to get there. Every scriptural commandment is for your profiting. You are not helping God; you are helping yourself. It’s your choice that determines your lot in life. Choose to be different. Your journey to greatness begins with your obedience to the fear of the Lord.

Final Thoughts

  • Faith is acting in line with what you believe from the word of God.
  • Your faith is fake without proof because faith is the evidence of things not seen. Without full proof, your faith is questionable.
  • Faith can be handled like a stick and be used to quench all arrows of the devil. Take (faith is taking) the shield of faith…
  • Faith is not mystical, but practical; faith with disobedience is dead.
  • Biblical examples of men that put faith into work are Abraham, Jesus, Joseph, Daniel, the three Hebrews boys, and many more. I’m interested in knowing more biblical examples of men and women who put faith into practice; you can share your ideas in the comments section.

Understanding The Bible Covenant

understanding the Bible covenant

Every written statement in the scripture is an oath (Josh.1:8, JMS.1:25). And we serve a covenant-keeping God (Is.14:24). Don’t question God. Question yourself.

What Is A Covenant?

A covenant is an agreement between two or more parties bound by terms. The terms are determined by parties involves.

What Is The Bible Covenant?

The Bible Covenant is an oath between divinity and humanity (God and man) bound by some conditions only determined by God.
In the Bible Covenant, there are no rooms for negotiations or public opinions. God is the sole determinant of the terms humans are to follow and comply.
I have said times without numbers that the lion is not the greatest animal; the greatest animal is sheep. According to the scripture, the lion will suffer hunger and lack, but those that seek God (the sheep) will not lack anything good.
The Bible Covenant is a deal between a supernatural force (God) and a natural force (man) of which the supernatural force is a commander while the natural force is a follower (basically, God operates on commandments).
However, there are benefits attached to the Bible Covenant when diligently adhere; and there are also conditions to be met. Until the conditions are met, the benefits are not in view.

And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: [2] And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. [3] Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. [4] Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. [5] Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. [6] Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out. [7] The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways. (Deuteronomy 28:1-7)

Benefits Of The Bible Covenant

(a). Supernatural blessings – By complying with the terms of the covenant, it provokes the rain of supernatural blessings on our lives (Deut.28:1-3).
(b). Divine promotion – By complying with terms of the covenant, it enhances the degree of our change of level and numbered us among the world’s highflyers. Every authentic child of God is a global phenomenon (Deut.28:1).
(c). Everywhere blessings – By complying with the terms of the covenant, we are blessed everywhere. Whether you live in the field (village) or city, the blessings of the Lord will locate you there (Deut.28:3). So, it doesn’t matter where you’re from, or what you do, the blessings of the Lord will find expression in your life by keying yourself to the covenant.
(d). All-round fruitfulness – Obedience to scriptural injunctions guarantee fruitful labour. Your father can’t be a baby maker and be a baby beggar. Even your cattle (business) is not permitted to be barren (Deut.28:4).
(e). Victory over defeat – By plugging yourself to the frequency of the Bible Covenant, you’ll overcome all your oppositions in the battlefield of life (Deut.28:7).


(1). Don’t just claim blessings, take responsibility.
(2). No divine contents that can be grounded in life, but when you take God for granted, you’ll be grounded. For instance, some fellows only saw their wealth as a product of their efforts. They forgot the ONE behind it. Then, everything goes down and fade into nothingness.
But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day (Deut 8:18).
It’s not enough to be blessed but to know how to sustain it. It takes OBEDIENCE to get to the wealthiest place of the ‘most high,’ it will take same OBEDIENCE to remain there.
Don’t be bigger than God. When God blessed you, don’t be too busy to serve Him. We’re not achievers, we’re privilege receivers. The day you start seeing yourself as an achiever, you’re finished. Our success in the kingdom is not an achievement, but an ‘engracement.’

Until you begin to see life with this new perspective, don’t expect God to entrust the riches in glory to you because you cannot be trusted. God only entrust the kingdom wealth to those who understand it and matured to utilize it and are grateful about it.
