Have you ever had something you needed, wanted, and could not wait for, kind of like a big fat check sent to you by snail mail? You wait, wait, and wait some more, but it does not arrive, in fact it seems to never arrive. You ponder on what to do, shall I call, shall I go over and demand the check, but you do not act and keep on waiting. If we take that approach, we may end up looking like the old mail box in the picture, everyone has moved on and the mail box is still empty.
This is how the works of faith are; they require action to keep things on the move. Yes we believe, yes we anticipate, but we need to go get the mail and sometimes we need to go to the source to get what is ours.
ROMANS 5:2 NKJ Through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
You see, we have a relationship with the Father who knows where the check is, and He will deliver the mail if we act in faith and trust in Him.
