Apply What You Believe

James asked, “What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions” (James 2:14, NLT)?  He later explains that what we believe must affect our behavior.  For example, if you believe rain is likely, you should pack an umbrella.

In Psalm 27, David illustrates how we can apply what we believe.  In verse 1, he several things he believes: God is his light, salvation, fortress.  He later applies what he believes: I shouldn’t be afraid or tremble.   Since God is David’s guide, rescuer, and protection, David decided to be confident.

Now, think about what you know about God.  He rewards those who pursue Him.  He supplies all of our needs.  Are you applying what you believe?  If not, let this email encourage you to put your faith in action.
