To have a successful faith we must learn of those who are advanced in the faith!
Our choices determine whether we rise or if we fall. Its the same with with choosing to or not to exercise our faith. Part of exercising our faith I believe inpart comes from attaining wisdom.
We attend church, bible studies, conferences, and things related to be taught in part things of the word we are to then leave those places with and begin to apply them into our life. Or has it been that we attend those things out of duty, with no continued meditation and no practicing out what you took in?
I know I did that for years. I would go and listen, take notes and say inwardly like “hey God I showed up, remember this”. How very proud and puffed up that was of me. When the reason He drew me to chase and persue Him was cause He was calling me into a deeper relationship with Him.
Where there is no guidance the people fall, But in abundance of counselors there is victory.
Proverbs 11:14 NASB
Needless to say I needed some spiritual councel to help me in my soul, as well as, to help get me in alignment with faith.
Thanks be to God he had blessed my life with a councelor in my life. When I crossed over to attending Reformation Developmental Center that is Pastored by Juanita Gibbs.
She has helped by councel pull me into alignmwnt with Gods word and His will and purpose for my life. It is by that councel victories are happening in my life.
This I once felt defeated in, things that I never thought God would come through and help me in He has in miraculous ways. For that I am eternally greatful for her councel of me.
