“Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.” 2 Corinthians 1:24 (KJV)
The Christian walk is not a solitary walk. As a body of Christ, the church has mature saints in the faith who are there to assist others, especially the new converts, to stand. Apostle Paul was one of the pillars of the church who was always filled with joy to see the saints established in faith and the Word of God. Dear beloved, for you to stand in faith, the Word of God must be part and parcel of your life because faith is wrapped up in the Word of God. Faith comes by hearing the Word of God, so don’t just read the Holy Bible; declare what you read to stir up your faith (Romans 10:17). Also make time to listen to audio or audiovisual messages of the Word to build and increase your faith. Get closer to mature Christians to tap into their counsel and resources, and you will stand and make progress in your Christian walk. Hallelujah! God bless you!
Prayer Point: Dear Holy Spirit, please lead me to scriptures that will ground me in faith. Amen!
