Strengthen Your Faith With This Godly Advice

by | Aug 21, 2019 | Women

We are learning about faith from others every day. If we will humble ourselves, we will learn new things every day. When it comes to learning, I purpose in my heart to learn something new about faith every day.

One way to learn about faith is by observing it in the lives of others around us. And I literally confess this with the words of my own mouth. And as someone shares something I’ve not known, or not thought about it in that way before I confess aloud, “This is my new thing I’ve learned today.”

I am a strong advocate for the prophetic and healing power of our words. And I purposefully work this truth into my daily life. Look to those around you, and readily learn from them, both young and old, and everyone else in between. And begin to prophesy the life lessons about the faith truths they learned into your life situations.

I learn from the experience of my elders. I grew up as the baby of the family. So I naturally was surrounded by people that were older than myself. I was raised in a rural community, and my extended family were my neighbors—practically everyone around me was a relative. I grew up listening and learning from their life experiences, both good and bad. And I witnessed how their faith in God carried them through to the victory or how their lack of faith in Jesus brought them to destruction.

But as for you, teach what is fitting of sound doctrine: Older men should be sober, serious, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience.

Likewise, older women should be reverent in behavior, and not be false accusers, not be enslaved to much wine, but teachers of good things, that they may teach the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, and to be self-controlled, pure, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be dishonored (Titus 2:1-5)..

From the young children, I discover powerful truths about what faith actually is—trust. Trusting in another’s faithfulness. Believing without question that they have our best interest at heart. This practical life example shows us we are to live out our faith in Christ—complete trust, not doubting His faithfulness or that He has our best interest at heart.

But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven” (Matt. 19:14).

And I observe and learn about what great faith is from the daily struggles and triumphs of others around me.

“Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, and in purity” (1 Tim. 4:12).

“In all things presenting yourself as an example of good works: in doctrine showing integrity, gravity, incorruptibility” (Titus 2:7).

“Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven” (Matt. 5:16).

The more I learn about faith, the more I clearly see how much more there is to learn. But if we will determine within our own hearts to learn something new every day about faith, our faith will continue to grow. And in return for our learning about faith, our faith in God will be observed by others, and they will learn how to walk in daily victory by our faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Next time, we will discuss growing our faith by studying God’s Word. {eoa}
