<Yesterday    Tomorrow>

Today God says:
 "Faith comes through hearing My Word".

He promises me:
  "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God". (Rom. 10:17)

My response to the word:
  Faith is a vitally important part of my life. God says that I am to "live by faith". In order to build my faith I know I must spend time in God's Word. This strengthens me and it renews my mind. Throughout this day I will seek to build my faith by letting my mind be washed continually by the water of God's Word. I recognize that studying the Bible is a privilege, not a duty, and I will walk in the light of God's Word wherever I go.

My prayer:
  Lord, thank you for your Word which builds my faith and keeps me from sin. I will let it be my weapon in spiritual warfare throughout this day.

Today's scriptures:
 "Anything that is not done in faith is sin". (Rom. 14:23 GW) "Indeed, our lives are guided by faith, not by sight". (2 Cor. 5:7 GW) "The person who has God's approval will live because of faith". (Gal. 5:11 GW)   

Quote for today:
Faith, as Paul saw it, was a living, flaming thing leading to surrender and obedience to the commandments of Christ. (A W Tozer)
