God Uses People Who Fortify Their Faith

Description

When was the last time you wrote out your testimony? If you write it out, God will give you the chance to share it. When you share your testimony with others, it fortifies your faith.

“Strengthen yourselves so that you will live here on earth doing what God wants, not evil things people want” (1 Peter 4:2 NCV).

What are you doing to fortify your faith? Here are just a few habits that can help you grow in this area:

Study the Bible. We need to make his Word a part of our lives. God’s Word is divinely inspired, and it will help you to be fully equipped to do everything God wants you to do.

Maintain a quiet time. How are you doing with your quiet time? If that’s a guilt-inducing question, perhaps you’re trying to have a quiet time like someone taught you long ago, but the method you were taught doesn’t fit the way God shaped you. What can you do to spend some daily time in God’s Word?

Read Christian books. Do yourself a favor, and learn all you can. Keep feeding your soul with what other believers have to say. If all I do is study the Bible for myself and don’t listen to what other Christians have to say about it, I’m not gaining from the wisdom and experience of other believers.

Keep your testimony fresh. What is God doing in your life? When was the last time you wrote out your testimony? If you write it out, God will give you the chance to share it. When you share your testimony with others, it fortifies your faith.

Be faithful to a small group of believers. The Bible says we should “encourage one another and build each other up” (1 Thessalonians 5:11 NIV). We are in a marathon of faith, and we need to run together. We need the support and encouragement of other believers.

Talk It Over

What is your plan for regular Bible study?

Talk with your small group, and make a list of great Christian books to read.

Take time this week to write out your testimony. It doesn’t have to be long. Share it with some Christian friends so they can help you focus what you’re trying to say.
