Walking Your Faith 

Proverbs 9:6 “Forsake foolishness and live, And go in the way of understanding.” NKJV 

Loved Ones in Christ,

None of us would like to say we are foolish at times. When we think of foolishness, we often dream up images of individuals who are acting in a childish manner or speaking in ignorance. While those may be foolish things, the Bible paints a more direct picture of foolishness. In essence, foolishness equals the rejection of God and His Word. After all, doesn't Psalm 14:1 say, "The fool has said in his heart, 'There is no God.'" This is at the root of foolishness. 

To believe in God and His Word is the epitome of wisdom. To walk in light of God's Truth is to experience a life of understanding. This leads to great blessing, and it all starts with our relationship with God. If we understand God and that His Word is true, we will understand that we are sinners in need of a great Savior, Jesus Christ. This understanding, from God’s Grace, brings us to faith in Christ which leads us into a relationship with God Himself. Imagine, broken human beings given the honor of being children of the God of all creation. I cannot imagine a greater blessing. And it all started by repentance, a gift from Above, forsaking foolishness and walking in the way of understanding.

Walking your faith? The abundance of life is summed up by the quality of one's relationship with the Sovereign Lord. Shalom! 

Precious Lord Jesus,

I believe You died for me so that I could be forgiven. I believe You were raised from the dead so that I could have new life. I know I have done wrong things, and I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Grant me the power to follow You all the days of my life. Amen.
