“being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.” James 1:25
When God speaks direction to us it’s imperative that we do it. We are blessed when we do. The word blessed means “happy”. Happy are those who do. It’s easy to forget what God’s been saying to you. Some seed gets scattered on the path and the birds of the air come and snatch them away. Other seed gets choked by thorns and the cares and worries of life. The thorns put us in a full Nelson. But other seed falls on good soil and it sprouts up and bears fruit.
God moves us forward in positive motion. God’s Word moves us toward faith and hope. God wants to do exceedingly above and beyond all we could ever imagine, ask, or think. If we are not stoked about life it’s because we are not believing the direction and Word he has spoken to us. When the plant breaks out of the seed it moves upward. Press on to the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Lord help my unbelief and give me the faith and trust to grow upward and believe Your Word. Amen
