Faithfulness // Day 2

Faith in God is truly a step by step approach. Some steps are a lot easier than others. It is that staircase where we take one step at a time to grow in the Lord and believe Him more and more. Some days I totally miss my step with Him, but He always forgives me and always invites me back to the staircase to try again. One day I will reach the top of that staircase and there He will be, waiting for me to escort me into His kingdom where faith will become sight.

STEP ONE:  

Make a list of ways that you believe God has been faithful in your life. What surprises you? Encourage yourself with the ways God has been faithful in the past. God will be faithful in your future as well.

 

STEP TWO: 

Read the “Hall of Fame” chapter, Hebrews 11:1-40.

With whom do you most identify from a faith walk perspective in this chapter and why?

 

STEP THREE:  

Read James 2:19-20.

What does the writer pair with faith as a necessity? Do you believe the two go together and compliment each other? Why?

 

STEP FOUR:

Read Mark 9:17-27.

Write out your own prayer like the one the father prayed in Mark 9. In the area of your greatest struggle, what is one step of faith God is asking you to take?

 

STEP FIVE:

Read Romans 4:20-21.

Select a Bible verse that can encourage you. Write it on a notecard and read it every day this week. (Here are some ideas: Proverbs 19:21, 2 Timothy 1:7, Ephesians 3:20-21.)

 

STEP SIX: 

Pray this prayer:

O Lord, I surrender my whole life to you. Fill me with complete faith in You. Help me to believe in You, Your ways, Your plans, Your purposes more than I ever have. Grow me each day in my faith in You. Let this piece of fruit be solid in me. Use it to help others to believe in You and increase their faith in You. Amen

 

I hope your faith walk goes well today. In many ways, it is a daily journey to lay our concerns before God each day and step out in faith. I trust that God will increase your faith day by day and that you will grow to love Him more and more as you recognize His incredible faithfulness to you!
