Word for Today:  July 13

Faith can be strengthened.

Our faith can be strengthened by remembering and by forgetting…. by remember­ing past victories and forgetting past failures.

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus…  Phil 3:13-14

Many times, my faith has been fortified just by sitting down, being still and listing the many victories God has given me in the past.  When I begin to remember the times God delivered me (and the ministry) through absolutely impossible situations, my confidence and faith for a present pressing problem seems to disappear.

When we consider the great things God has done for us and to us and through us, it becomes apparent just how faithful God is and absolute His Word is.   He honors His Word and keeps His Promises.  Our past victories will attest to this fact.  We must not allow satan to tempt us with discouragement and depression when he reminds us of painful failures in the past.

Forget past failures and remember past victories.

This will build and strengthen faith.

And it will increase your confidence in God and His Word.
