Be the One Part 3
In the last two blogs, we set the stage for the Be the One series. If you haven’t read these posts, go back and catch up!
In John 14:12 the Jesus states, “He that believes on me, the works that I do shall he do also.”
Jesus is saying in John 14:12, “BE THE ONE because I AM THE ONE!”
Throughout history there are many examples of men and women who chose to Be the One. But, how do you do that? What do you have to put forth in your life to be the one God wants you to be and has already provided for you to be? Let’s take a look at several of these people and their stories, in very shortened forms of course, to see what they did to be the one.
1. Moses stretched forth his rod and parted the Red Sea.
2. Abraham left his family to follow God, and he was made the father of many.
3. The children of Israel marched around Jericho until the walls fell.
4. David ran and spoke toward Goliath and killed the giant.
5. Esther rose up and went before the king to save her people.
6. Naaman dipped seven times in the Jordan to get rid of leprosy.
7. Jesus told the man with a withered hand, “stretch forth and be whole.”
8. Peter told the crippled man to rise and walk, and the man walked.
You see, in all these instances, action mixed with faith, brought forth the power of God and the ability for each of these people to rise above the situation staring them right in the face and Be the One that received from God!
The two main ingredients in all of these stories is action mixed with faith. This brought forth God’s manifestation in their lives! The definition of faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. In my interpretation of this scripture, faith is believing and trusting God, even though you do not see the results of it. You keep trusting. The definition of action is an act of will; the accomplishment of a thing usually over a period of time, in stages, or with the possibility of repetition.
Our will plays a very important role in being the one! It did with the woman with the issue of blood. So, in other words, when we put action in motion or our will in motion towards the expression of faith, then those two mixed together bring forth God’s power upon the situation.
Check yourself this week, as you go through things in life. Ask yourself, “is my will mixed with faith?” If not, get in the Word of God and start mixing, rearranging, and improving your will.
