TOPIC: Faith and Testimonies
"Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message,
and the message is heard through the word about Christ" - Romans 10:17.
You must feed and build up your faith, and that comes in part by hearing faith stories and teaching. That is wjy testimonies are so important, for they build your faith and give you a vision for what you can do in faith. These stories can be from the living or those who have gone on in faith. What's more, you can encourage yourself with your own faith stories, reminding yourself of your past faith ventures to encourage your faith walk today. Who are your faith heroes? Where do you go to stimulate and encourage your faith? Who are you listening to, those who optimistic in faith or pessimistic in doubt?
Lord, You have been faithful to me, and I take time today to remember some of the instances where I stood in faith and You acted on my behalf. I choose not to shrink back today, but rather to advance in faith, remembering my past and the past of others whose faith you rewarded.
