Jonathan went to find David and encouraged him to stay strong in his faith in God. – 1 Samuel 23:16 NLT
Do you have friends that encourage you to stay strong in your faith in God?
Most of us have friends that encourage us when times are tough. But how that encouragement comes is different. Some encourage with warm presence. Others with words of affirmation. But do you have friends that keep you accountable to your faith?
If you never walk through circumstances that test your faith, you probably aren’t living out the call that God has on your life. Christ’s call is to take up a cross–there is nothing comfortable in that. At some point, cross carrying turns into a test of faith.
It is at that time when a good friend says, “You’re on track. Keep feeding your faith in God. He has a plan for you.”
If you have friends like this, you are blessed. If not, find one.
