Today’s Scripture: He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. Proverbs 13:20
Living the Faith Lifestyle can seem like a tall order at first. When you’ve gone for so long only relying on your own thinking and wisdom, it can take a lot of work to begin depending on God’s wisdom. Don’t seek to understand first, then believe; believe first, then you will understand.
Another way to strengthen your faith is to be around people who are walking by faith, not by sight. If you associate with friends who like to walk by sight and not by faith, pretty soon you will find yourself doing the same thing.
Be careful when choosing your friends. It is easier to get pulled down into walking by sight than for you to pull your friends up into walking by faith. Too often, I’ve seen people with the purest motives of helping their friends, and they end up falling.
Ask God to help you to strengthen your faith, be in His Word and be with people who walk by faith. Soon, you will be on your way to living the Faith Lifestyle.
