Faith does not make things easy; it makes them possible. For with God, nothing shall be impossible. (Luke 1:37)
Just proclaiming faith is not enough for the endless possibilities that result from true faith, for “faith without works is dead”.
“What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him “? James 2:14. ” For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also” James 2:26
As an old preacher once said, “have faith, but do something until something happens”.
We ask God, we believe He will respond to us, but we must act, like keep his commandments.
