What makes you tick as a believer? What motivates you to continue on your journey as God’s child? Did you take a pill for your lifelong commitment? Or was it a vaccination? If you nourish yourself daily with the Bible, God will continue to sustain you through the briar patches of life.
Below are five thoughts to strengthen your spiritual walk.
Christians who want answers and solutions will read the book of books. Within its pages, the believer will find examples of individuals with the same type of situations you are experiencing. There’s nothing new under the sun, according to Ecclesiastes. Even though we think so, our solution is one in which God directs our attention.
As individuals read the Bible, they see themselves in some of the same situations as illustrated. Like being misunderstood, maybe punished for doing right, or getting into trouble because we disobeyed. They’re all in the Bible.
Solutions happen when we trust the Lord. Sometimes, he eliminates the problems. Then, there are times the Lord supplies the extra resources to satisfy the situation. But, challenging times happen when we go through the fire of certain circumstances. After the testing time, we realized God enabled us. Without the difficulty, we would never have matured as we did.
The fourth realization is when we believe in our Lord and trust his sovereign directions. Even though we may not give God credit for doing so, we forget he has promised never to leave or forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:6-8). Some lessons need experience for our future well-being.
The last point happens because we believe in the Lord. God provides our daily needs when we look to Him. This foundation encourages us to dive into God’s word by strengthening our faith to be put into action again and again.
One thing is for sure, doing right and trusting God for divine results is always a winner.
