Unshakeable Faith

Updated: Aug 15, 2019

Unshakeable faith is actionable faith.


Just as the body is lifeless without breath

Just as the cooling mechanism for overheating is sweat

So are good works without faith

One needs the other to endure life’s race


Not convinced? Let’s take a look and break it down.

Faith without works, is not really all that sound

For that kind of faith is lip service, and not deed

Another way to sum it up is to call it hypocrisy


For one who says they have faith, but their life shows fear and doubt

Has some things to work on, to move the deadness out

For unshakeable faith can move mountains seen and unseen

Unshakeable faith doesn’t fret and fall apart during the ‘in-between’


Unshakeable faith can lose everything tangible but still give God praise

The marriage, the house, the job, and still say God lead the way

Unshakeable faith has friends who flip the script and leave them be

Yet still ministers to those same individuals as God directs and leads


Unshakeable faith can separate the sin from the person

And not allow a God-moment to be ruined by high emotions

Unshakeable faith looks the enemy square in the eyes

And reminds them that God, not man is the ultimate prize


Unshakeable faith can stand all alone despite who’s supposed to be there

And stand strong and firm, without a concern or a care

Unshakeable faith takes the hits and the accusations

And praises God for turning them into strength and elevation


Unshakeable faith can put up the good deeds to match the words

And is consistent, accountable, and reliable, despite fleshly lack of rewards

Unshakeable faith will soar high like an eagle in the sky

Because unshakeable faith knows how to, with God, always remain nigh

James 2:18-26 New Living Translation (NLT)

vs.19-20 - You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God.[a] Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. How foolish! Can’t you see that faith without good deeds is useless?

vs.23-26 - And so it happened just as the Scriptures say: “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.”He was even called the friend of God. So you see, we are shown to be right with God by what we do, not by faith alone. Rahab the prostitute is another example. She was shown to be right with God by her actions when she hid those messengers and sent them safely away by a different road. Just as the body is dead without breath, so also faith is dead without good works.
