A Doer With Purpose

James wrote by THE SPIRIT in chapter 1:

22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror;

24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.

25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.

Those who wish to live an overcoming life as mature Sons or Daughters of FATHER must be doers of The Word.  They are willing to stand on The Word and respond accordingly no matter what the five physical senses would suggest to the contrary.  No matter what your age, it is never too late to align yourself with The Word and begin to walk according to the redemptive promises made possible through Jesus Christ.  When we become doers of The Word, we will be blessed in those areas of revelation we have fully embraced.

We must keep The Word before us continuously.  If we don’t, we will become void of HIS Word in that area of HIS redemptive promises.  The result is that we will forget what kind of person we are; we will no longer overcome and be blessed in that aspect of our life.  I have experienced this first hand in the area of Divine health.  For years I believed FATHER for my health and ceased studying and dwelling on HIS Word in that area.  Why?  I was healthy and did not think about it.  Then suddenly, I contracted hepatitis from shellfish and became sick unto death according to the doctor.  I repented and immersed myself in healing Scriptures and was miraculously healed in eleven days versus the expected minimum six to eight weeks of recovery.  May this testimony sink in and convince you to continue in HIS Word.

If you fail to act on The Word then you are deceiving yourself.  Your ego has caused you to have fear, uncertainty, and doubt about the potential of failure of your faith.  You are afraid to step out in faith because your faith is weak and unproductive in a particular area.  The answer lies in planting seeds of faith in the area of your weakness by daily confessing HIS Word in that area of weakness.  Who cares what other people think!  Focus on those promises given to us by a Loving Heavenly Father WHO desires us to overcome that area of weakness in our life.

A mature Son or Daughter will have a thought life consistent with FATHER’S Divine Intent.  Instead of belittling ourselves or others, we will see as FATHER sees.  We will think as FATHER thinks.  We will speak as FATHER speaks.  We will respond as Our Lord Jesus responded in the Gospels.  Our faith will become great as we allow those seeds of The Word to mature into good fruit.  Our Love will become unrestricted as we mature in FATHER’S redemptive promises.  No longer will our focus be on self, but instead we will focus on blessing others.  We will not seek our own glory but will give FATHER all the glory and credit for the good fruit produced.

If FATHER has blessed you with financial blessings, do you believe that HE intended for you to consume all the fruit for yourself?  If HE healed you of your sickness or disease, did HE want you to be silent when you come in contact with others who need healing?  Blessings from Above are meant to be shared with others.  Those who don’t do not believe FATHER to have sufficiency in all blessings.  FATHER stated in Deuteronomy chapter 28:

2  “And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God”

We are to become as conduits of FATHER’S blessings to others.  Let us not be forgetful hearers, but let us be doers with purpose.  Our purpose should include spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ in word and deed.
