Keeping Hold of the Truths of Faith
Scripture: 1 Timothy 3:  They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience.
Observation: Keeping hold is sometimes the hard part for me. I know the truths of faith, because God as shown me them over and over again, but keeping hold of them is something else. When I’m going through trials or things aren’t going my way I so easily forget the truths and focus on my situation.
Application: Always keep in my heart the truths of faith, how God is always with me and if I follow Him he will lead me and protect me. That faith without works is dead being of itself and that I need to be working for my Lord with service to others in his name. Keep the truths stored in my heart and use them constantly to fulfill the purpose God has set before me.
Prayer: Dear Lord increase my faith so that I may trust you with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding, but acknowledge you with all of my heart.
