17. Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
18. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
19. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
20. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 19 JUNE 2021 MESSAGE
Faith according to Hebrews 11:1 is having the assurance of things not seen.
It is believing that you have something even when you don’t.
Apostle Paul in many scriptures spoke about faith; he however encouraged us to add work to our faith.
For instance, a student is supposed to have faith that he or she would perform excellently academically, but still has to attend classes, do his or her assignments and projects, burn the midnight oil and answer the questions in the examination correctly.
It would therefore be foolish of any student to spend time attending fellowships, praying and fasting without studying.
Having faith that you will excel without studying according to our memory verse will result into failure (academic death).
Likewise, if you believe God for healing or good health and you still eat junk or practice poor hygiene, you will only be living in deceit.
You must work in line with whatever you believe God for.
