Encouragement Nugget - Characteristics of Faith!
Chosen by God!
Faith has a voice!
“Yet we have the same spirit of faith as he had who wrote, I have believed, and therefore have I spoken. We too, believe, and therefore we speak,” (II Corinthians 4:13 AMPC)
“(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did.” (Romans 4:17 NKJV)
Faith must be exercised by actions!
“Oh, that my actions would consistently reflect your decrees!” (Psalm 119:5 NLT)
“So also faith, if it does not have works (deeds and actions of obedience to back it up), by itself is destitute of power (inoperative, dead).” (James 2:17 AMPC)
“You see his faith and his actions worked together. His actions made his faith complete.” (James 2:22 NLT)
“Commit your actions to the LORD, and your plans will succeed.” (Proverbs 16:3 NLT)
Faith, based on actions, has a reward!
“But I, the Lord, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve.” (Jeremiah 17:10 NLT)
“Behold, I am coming soon, and I shall bring My wages and rewards with Me, to repay and render to each one just what his own actions and his own work merit.” (Revelation 22:12 AMPC)
Faith is bold!
“Those helpers who do their work well win for themselves a good standing and are able to speak boldly about their faith in Christ Jesus.” (I Timothy 3:13 NLT)
