“Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.” (Jm. 2:17)
Faith, at its core, is deep-rooted in the expectation of things working together for our good (Rom. 8:28). It goes beyond hope. While hope lives in one’s mind, faith is steeped in man’s heart and through his actions (Heb. 11:1). Faith, by itself, doesn’t work for all things we do should be a prophetic act out of faith as a declaration for our future (Jm. 2:17).
A prophetic act holds spiritual power for fulfillment or breakthrough. Some Old Testament prophets are renowned for their strange prophetic actions. Isaiah went naked (Is. 20:3), Hosea married a prostitute (Hos. 1:2), and Ezekiel laid on one side for 390 days (Ezek. 4:5). God ordained all these prophetic actions for prophetic manifestation in the flesh.
We shouldn’t only speak to our future with words but also speak to our future through our daily actions for what does it benefit if our words don’t align with our actions. Everything we do today affects our tomorrow.
If we are willing to be open to the Holy Spirit, we’ll see an explosion of His fullness working in and through us, stirring our faith. Our actions are a sign of our faith in God, and as Christians, we are called not only to preach but to become doers the word of God (Jm. 1:22).
