Actions are connected to faith. Consider the story of the 10 lepers. “And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance and lifted up their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” Luke 17:12-13
And He did, indeed show them mercy.
“When he saw them he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed.” Luke 17:14
“And as they went they were cleansed.” Let’s not miss the beauty of the text. This interaction took place from a distance. The lepers believed in the power and authority of Jesus. And they went. They walked their faith out.
We, too, must walk our faith out. Once we get off of our knees from praying, we must move forward in faith. We must move forward believing that our prayer has been heard and will be answered.
We don’t serve a genie. We serve an strategic and intentional God. Will you walk by faith? Even if you can’t see it, will you believe that He’s done it?
My friend, walk boldly like the 10, trusting and believing that God is whom He say He is. Walk boldly in your healing, wholeness, and deliverance. And as you go, know that you are set free. As you go, know that God is not a man that He shall lie.
And once you receive what you’ve asked for, desired, and needed, follow the lead of the one…
“Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks…” Luke 17:15-16 ESV
