WFJ: Take these little steps of faith!

24 May 2010 3 Comments

(Words From Jesus): “What are you doing with what you are hearing from Me? Are you doing the things that you are being told? Are you transforming your thoughts into deeds, especially My heavenly thoughts, the ones that I speak to your heart?

If you are “not only a hearer, but a doer of My word” (James 1:23), then you will not be surprised if you start seeing the results that I want to bring in your life. To see fruits in your life, you have to take action! Action must come from what you are hearing, and you need to learn to not only hear, but to also write down the steps that you need to take …

As you hear My voice, you need to open your journal and write down the things that I want you to do … As you take the steps that I tell you to take, then you will start seeing fruits in your life!

It’s like what you read in My word, “many are called, but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14)! Why are few chosen when many are “the called according to My purposes” (Rom. 8:28)? It’s because few are those who respond to the call and act upon it! If I tell you to “preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15), but you don’t; would you see any fruit in your life? Think of all the millions of Christians who know that they should be preaching the gospel to others, but they don’t; do they see any “fruit that remain” (John 15:16) in their lives?

The same goes with those who only hear what I say, but don’t act upon it! They must not be surprised if they don’t see any fruit in their lives! You have to act upon what I show you, in order to see the fruits of obedience being reaped in your life! You have to act upon what I show you by faith, and let Me take care of the results! “Prove Me now herewith, if I will not open the windows of Heaven and pour you out such a blessing that there will be no room enough to receive it” (Malachi 3:10)! Obedience must come first, and then I will bless you, and you will see the fruits of your labor!

I’m not asking you to do anything that goes beyond your capabilities. I’m only asking you to take a few little steps, things that you can do, not more! If I were to ask you more than you are able, I would also provide for you the help that you need … and in My time I will do that! When the time comes for you to do things that are too difficult for you, I will also provide the help that you need, but for now I’m only asking you to do what you are able, not more!

Even the things that you think you’re not able to do, the little steps of faith that you are asked to take, are just meant to stretch your faith a bit. You are being stretched, as you don’t feel capable of doing what I’m asking you to do, but it’s something that you can do or I wouldn’t have opened the door for you! It’s something that will enhance your ministry, as you learn to “teach others to teach others” (2 Timothy 2:2), for it will equip leaders for what’s to come!

You are fully equipped for what’s to come in the days ahead, but you must take these little steps of faith and obedience now, if you want to see more fruit in your life! Let go of the past and look ahead to the future, for what I have placed in your heart is going to come to pass, as you take these little steps of faith in the direction that I’m showing you to go! I love you!
