Breaktime: Doing Something Good
Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Psalm 37:3
There are so many comforting words in this passage. We can’t trust God without doing good for it is a byproduct of our faith. Now we are not saved by doing good but because we are saved, we do good works. James 2:14 says it best:
What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?
When we trust God, we realize He is our confidant through life, He is our source of strength and we can trust him with all the details. His hands are mighty and leaving all our worries and cares with Him gives us the passion to serve others. Faith is the strength to do the works of the Lord.
When we have faith and can’t seem to find the strength to do good, we need to ask ourselves who we have faith in. Faith and works belong on the same one-way street and we do more than tell others about our faith, we show them through our actions. When we are busy doing good, we don’t have time for the shallow works of murmuring and gossip. We also notice our anxiety and a worried mind diminishing when we are actively engaged in serving others.
