Faith doesn’t just end with the talking, there is the action after the faith talk: This is one aspect of faith’s operation that cannot be overemphasized. It stands as a strong determining factor as to the kind of manifestation that follows. Results hinges so much on what happens after the faith talk. What you do in alignment with what you believe, after the talking of faith authenticates your faith talk and it brings forth the required result.
What you do as a result of what you believe activates God’s power. God reckons with what you have to say as a result of what you believe; but He longs to see what you are willing to do as a result of what you claim to believe. This is what heaven counts on for the acceleration of divine results. Anybody can talk but not so many accompany their talk with gainful actions. The action accelerates the results. If you believe you are healed; what are you doing as a result of what you believe?
The lame man who got healed at the gate called Beautiful did not sit back, hoping against hope for a manifestation someday. The Bible says in Acts 3:8 –
_ “And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping and praising God”._
If you believe you are healed, then, get up and begin to do those things you couldn’t do before. That is faith! If you believe God’s Word to prosper you in whatever you do; you don’t have to sit back simply confessing it, expecting it to happen somehow or expecting manna to drop down from heaven. Get to lay your hands on something; begin to do something which you expect God to bless. The Bible says in Psalm 1:3; that – “Whatsoever he doeth shall prosper”. You have said it, but you need to set your hands on something which God will bless.
The Word of faith you are speaking is already blessed, because it is God’s Word. God’s Word is forever blessed. That Word you are professing needs to translate into action to make real the tangibility of the blessing. The four lepers at the gate of Samaria talked faith; they knew if they remained at the gate, death was imminent. If they go into the city, death was inevitable; because; of the hunger in the city. They said –
“Let us fall into host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die” (2 Kings 7:4).
Good talk! As good as the talk was; nothing happened until they actually took steps to go into the camp of the Syrians. When they stepped out, heaven got up for them. Heaven waits for you to step out, based on the faith that you proclaim.
