God will help you move mountains, but you need to bring a shovel.

img_0288Christians pray and ask God for help with problems. Some people think that means sitting back and doing nothing, waiting for God to magically work it all out. That sort of faith will get you nowhere. The Bible clearly teaches in James 2:17 that faith without works is dead.

There is no big secret. There is no magic pill. Things in this life worth having require counsel with the Most High, dedication and hard work. That’s it.

Sometimes, we are our biggest opponent to completing the mission. We are blinded by temporary obstacles, unable to see the potential within ourselves. Having faith means that we tie a knot and hold on at the end of our rope. This mindset becomes habitual and success, inevitable.

Getting started isn’t enough. As I recently heard Kai Greene put it, one must string together consecutive days of efficient action on a basic level, in order to achieve desired results. This implies the need for consistent action steps toward your goals, everyday. Personal accountability and follow through are vital.

No matter how big the obstacle, you can surpass it. By the Lord’s grace and mercy, you are a creature made with a spirit of power and not one of fear (2 Timothy 1:7). You just need to talk to God, find your purpose within your spiritual gift and be ready to work.

No weapon formed against you will prosper. (Isaiah 54:17)

Get your shovel ready, God’s waiting.

One thought on “God will help you move mountains, but you need to bring a shovel.

  1. Well, obviously we were led the same way by The Spirit. And I agree totally, God surely doesn’t expect us to just pray and wait. Well, maybe sometimes He does, but He also expects action. We just have to know the difference!
