Take Action to Make It Happen

And I am praying that you will put into action the generosity that comes from your faith as you understand and experience all the good things we have in Christ. Philemon 1:6 (NLT)

Have you ever set a goal but did nothing to accomplish it? You spent time planning how to meet the goal, but did not take any action to make it happen. A person who wants to lose weight can think about doing it or change their eating and exercise habits to make a change. A person who wants to continue their education can think about it or start registering for classes. A person can think about volunteering or can make contact and get on the volunteer schedule.

God wants us to do more than just make plans. He wants us to step out in faith and change the world around us. He has designed each of us for a purpose. We can make a plan, but then we need to work the plan. We need to take action. Ask God today what actions you need to take…then take action!

Anyone who doesn’t breathe is dead, and faith that doesn’t do anything is just as dead! James 2:26 (CEV)
