Do you want your prayers to be powerful? Then pray as a righteous person… But how do we become righteous?
We can pile up knowledge and even understanding about the Bible. We can read sermons and commentaries, listen to podcasts, and go through daily blogs. Yet unless we are doing what the Word says, we are fooling ourselves.
Faith is delicate, because it often goes against our reason. It just doesn’t make “sense” sometimes. This can make us see faith as believing something that cannot be proved.
Even the most overwhelming problem is no match for the imagination and power of God.
But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, accommodating, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial, and not hypocritical. And the fruit that consists of righteousness is planted in peace among those who make peace. – James 3:17-18
