Living a life of faith can prove to be challenging and at times may cause you to feel discouraged if things do not turn out the way you plan. There are few things to keep in mind when it comes to staying on the track of faith each having simple practical ways that you can do each day.
Your Confession Matters
The Bible says “The tongue has the power of life and death.” The stakes are high. Your words can either speak life, or your words can speak death. Our tongues can build others up, or they can tear them down. (Proverbs 18:21). This scripture clearly paints the picture that our words carry a lot of weight particularly when it comes to the direction of our lives, therefore, be on guard of what you say and how you say it, those words will intend create an impact.
Most people we bump into have a negative outlook on certain aspects of life or toward themselves which evidently does not lead to a positive outcome. If you hope to live in faith and be effective in the Kingdom then the first step is to switch up your confession.
Study the Word
Our relationship with the Lord only develops with the more time we take learning who He is, and understanding our identity in Him through the study of His word.
“Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” (Joshua 1:8). It’s through mediating and studying the Word of God we get to the point of growing in our walk of faith and naturally obeying the Lord’s leading in our lives.
Living honourably means paying close attention to what God is saying in every moment of life, even in times when we may think things are too small for God to care about. Truth is, God cares about the little things and the heavy loads, our high moments and low encounters.
“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for us”. (1 Peter 5:7). The Bible makes it clear of the fact that God wants us to come to Him in our moment of anxiety. However, we can only come out of those times if we are attentive to His leading (Isaiah 30:21).
