“…faith without works is dead” (James 2:20, NKJ) 
Are you waiting for God to do something in your life? One thing I’ve learned is that waiting should not be a passive thing. When we’re waiting the correct way, we’re on the lookout. We talk like what we are believing for is going to happen. We act like it’s going to happen. We’re making preparations.

It’s just like when you’re expecting someone for dinner; you don’t wait till they show up before you decide to start cooking. Most likely you start early in the day. You make sure the house is clean, you go to the grocery store, and maybe you buy some flowers for the table. You make preparations because you’re expecting someone. Well, that’s the attitude we need to have while we’re waiting for God’s promises to come to pass. As you put actions behind your prayers, your faith comes alive and opens the door for God to move mightily on your behalf. 

A Prayer for Today

“Father God, I choose to put actions behind my faith today. I trust that You are at work in my life. I will wait the right way—with expectancy—knowing that my faith in You opens the door for Your hand to move in my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

We have to remember that the enemy is the one who is trying to bring discouragement. He’s trying to get you focused on the closed door instead of the open door just ahead. Don’t fall for the trap! Keep moving forward. Keep praising God in the hallway. Stay in faith knowing that God has something better in store for you!

"Wondering, indecision, & confusion prevent an individual from receiving from God, by faith, the answer to his/her prayer or need. Notice that in Mark 11:23-24, Jesus did not say ‘Whatever you ask for in prayer, WONDER if you will get it.’ Instead, He said, ‘Whatever you ask for in prayer, BELIEVE that you will receive it & you will!"

"Sometimes the sin we take on becomes such a part of us that it requires the same kind of ripping and tearing to free us. The Holy Spirit does not seek to hurt us, but he does seek to make us Christlike and this can be painful"

"You will make mistakes, disappoint God and others, and have days when you wonder why God ever called you in the first place. Don’t despair! Your usefulness to God is based on His consistency, not yours. Your call is sustained by God’s faithfulness, not yours."

"Satan deceives people into thinking that the source of their misery is due to their circumstances and what is going on around them, but actually, the real trouble is due to what is going on inside them. When our focus is on God and His sovereignty, our attitudes begin to change."
