"Three Ways to Demonstrate Faith"

“Three Ways to Demonstrate Faith”


We wait in hope for the Lord; He is our help and our shield.  In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name.         Psalm 33:20-22


In this passage of Scripture, we see three ways for a TRUE BELIEVER to demonstrate their FAITH in the Almighty God.  The first way is, to WAIT IN HOPE for the Lord.   Sometimes in the walk of a TRUE BELIEVER, they face situations that seem DIFFICULT and even IMPOSSIBLE to deal with.  The wise thing to do is to WAIT IN HOPE for the Lord.  However, this is NOT ALWAYS the case, some will plunge into the situation with no direction or no guidance, and this only COMPLICATES the situation.


When the TRUE BELIEVER WAITS IN HOPE for the Lord, it is a DEMONSTRATION of their FAITH in Him and His POWER.   And they BENEFIT from the DEMONSTRATION of their Faith.


The second way to DEMONSTRATE one’s FAITH, is to REJOICE in the Lord, the one in whom they have placed their trust.  When we REJOICE, we are DEMONSTRATING to others our FAITH in God’s POWER.  And REJOICING is a source of STRENGTH for our STEADFAST FAITH.


The third way to DEMONSTRATE one’s FAITH is to TRUST in His holy name.  As humans, we tend to put our TRUST in many things that, at some point in time, will end up FAILING us.  This then weakens our FAITH and sends a message to this LOST and DYING world that you cannot FULLY TRUST God to be your HELP and SHIELD.  When one faces life with FULL TRUST in GOD, the message changes to one of a STRONG and STEADFAST TRUST and is a DEMONSTRATION of one’s FAITH in the ALMIGHTY GOD.  Do you have that kind of TRUST? 


If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are destined to spend ALL of ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY OF ESCAPE.  God is giving you the opportunity NOW to change your DESTINY by, TURNING AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURNING TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  You MUST CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  And BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then you MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and DEMONSTRAT YOUR FAITH by:  WAITING in HOPE for the LORD, REJOICING in HIM, and TRUST in HIS HOLY NAME.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
