Faith vs Foolishness

This is the first part of a series called #Faith Myths Dispelled#

Scenario 1: Corresponding Action
Scripture - Isaiah 53:5 "But he {Jesus} was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed."

Now someone will take this scripture, misinterpret it and stop driving without their glasses because their "vision is restored" or stop taking their medication because they are "healed". Now bless your heart for your willingness to believe the Word of God, but there is corresponding action for faith and you cannot just quit cold turkey without the manifestation. That is not radical faith that is foolishness and you make Christians look crazy when you confess that around unbelievers or baby Christians.

Continue to believe God and confess that you are healed, continue to trust in His Word but don't act so spiritually deep that you are no earthly good. Common sense is not the opposite of faith. Mix faith, common sense and good business practices and you will see results.

Let's go back to farming, if you plant a seed and the blade starts to show, picking that thing too early will destroy the crop and ruin the harvest. In the same manner, just be patient and wait for the full manifestation.
