Get Up & Do Something

I’ve seen several times and I’ve heard people say that many battles are won on your knees. However, I disagree. In every battle that has ever been fought from the being of time to today there was/is someone giving commands and providing instructions for those that are fighting. Even in God’s word there were physical battles fought. Not a single war regardless of it’s nature was fought or won without taking action.

 

It is in prayer that we receive instructions on what to do and say. How we should proceed. Faith is far beyond just believing so in order to win any battle I’ve got to do more then just pray. Show me your faith without works I’ll show you my faith by my works! Check the wars in the bible, the war of 1812, the civil war, the gulf war, the war on drugs, the war on homelessness, the war on poverty the all require and show some sort of action.

 

Psalm 144:1-2 states “Blessed be the LORD, my rock, Who trains my hands for war, And my fingers for battle; My lovingkindness and my fortress, My stronghold and my deliverer; My shield and He in whom I take refuge; Who subdues my people under me.” If there were no action required to win the battle then the Lord Himself would not provide training. In fact, the word declares that the Lord is a man of war Exodus 15:3.

 

So I want to urge you to get up off your knees, stop crying, and truly walk by faith. What has God commanded you to do while you were in prayer? Get up & do something about it!!!
