Decision-Making Builds Faith


After God gives you a dream, you've always got a decision to make. Are you going to do something about the dream He has given you? Nothing is going to happen to that dream until you wake up and put it into action. James 1 teaches us that faith is a verb. It's active and not passive. It's something you do. Decision-making is a faith-building activity. You use your muscles of faith. A great illustration of God's plan is a trapeze artist. They swing out holding onto a trapeze bar, and then they let go in order to grab hold of another trapeze bar that swings them to the other side. But, at one point, they're not holding on to any bar. They're suspended in air for a split second. Have you ever been there in a career, where you're leaving one job for another and nothing's in between? You're 180 feet above the ground with no net below and holding onto nothing. But if you don't let go and grab onto the vision God wants you to have, you swing back. But this time you swing back lower and lower until you're finally stopped, hanging there in the air. And there's only one way out: down! God brings your dream to a point of decision so your faith will build as you swing toward Gods dream for you.


“But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.”

‭‭James‬ ‭1:6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
