As a Christian believer, faith is “at work” for me,
even if I don’t immediately feel or see it to be.
After issuing a prayer that is heartfelt and fervent,
I can always count on faith to be my “faithful” servant.
Jesus spoke to the fig tree, then went on His way,
knowing that poor fig tree had seen its final day.
Likewise, as disciples, in “speaking to” matters at hand,
we can expect things to respond to our authority and command.
So, when doubt tries to discredit the promises God has said,
remember that your active faith is “at work” instead.
Faith is our servant, the invisible working force;
and the finisher of it is Christ, its author and source.
P. A. Oltrogge
“…and immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, ‘O you of little faith, why did you doubt?'” Matthew 14:31 NKJV
“…looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith….”

“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that overcomes the world–our faith.” 1 John 5:4
