The Lord Jesus teaches us that we prove our faith by our works. Why do we attempt great things for God? We attempt great things, not knowing exactly how they will be brought to pass, but knowing that God has put things in our hearts. It all begins with God.
“And Jesus answering said unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you. That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” Mark 11: 22-24.
God uses those who have faith in Him. If we get our faith right, other things will fall into proper place. Have faith in God.
