Faith needs to be practiced daily, in order to be perfected. Develop the habit of walking by faith, pursuing a disciplined life. Put your faith to good use, and it will grow. Do not overlook the importance of faith in living a life that pleases and honors the Lord.
READ: Rom. 12:3; 2 Cor. 4:17-18; 2 Cor. 5:7; 2 Tim. 1:7. Heb. 11:1-3,6; 1 Pet. 5:7.
HEART ISSUE: Have you spent any time in daily prayer and the reading of God's Word lately? In order to move in the higher places of faith, you will need to tend your faith like a garden, feeding and cultivating it each day.
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, I thank you for giving me a measure of faith daily. In Your power, teach me to cast down the arguments that exalt themselves against the truth. Let me walk sure-footed in the higher place of faith, believing in Your promises that will never fail me. Amen.
Walking in the higher place of faith involves more than the performance of a few good deeds. Faith, especially the higher place of faith, involves our daily commitment to understand who we are in Christ and who He is in us. Our faith will naturally rise to the next level as we believe God and step out on the basis of our covenant relationship with Him.

PRAYER FOCUS: Father, thank You for Your promises in Your Word. Help me to look forward to the challenges that lift me up to believe You and walk in new heights of faith. Let me never forget that as I walk, You have gone before me and secured my victory. Amen.
