“And without faith it is impossible to please GOD, because anyone who comes to HIM must believe that HE exists and that HE rewards those who earnestly seek HIM.” Hebrews 11:6 NIV

Read: Hebrews 11:1-11

If you are invested in the stock market, mutual funds or other investments this year has been disappointing to most. Sometimes, it is hard to keep our heads above water financially. If history repeats itself, things are going to improve in time.

More important than your financial situation is your spiritual life. Are you keeping yourself above water spiritually? With Satan and his legions of angels on the prowl, it is difficult for many. But…it does not have to be that difficult.

Spiritual investors have an advantage!

It is easier than you may think to keep yourself above the paths prowled by Satan. Start with focusing your entire day on GOD.

Begin your day with reading your Bible and studying GOD’S meaning of the scriptures. End your study time in devoted prayer. Tell HIM thank you for all He has done and is doing for you. Next, turn over the problems and concerns of your life to HIM and then ask HIM for the help you need in your life. Close your prayers with your request for HIS help for those things and for help in you assisting others with their needs.

Don’t stop there. Invest in your spiritual walk. Stay in prayer throughout the day. Don’t pass up any opportunity to tell others of JESUS, your SAVIOUR. Don’t forget how your actions as well as your words impact all who see and hear you. Go to church. Join a group Bible study. Live your life the way GOD wants you to live, not as others would have you do.

Your investments in your spiritual walk will reward you with even greater returns.

Today’s prayer: “MY SAVIOUR, Thank YOU for all YOU have done for me and are doing. I am turning over my problems to YOU. Help me deal with these concerns and help me assist others with their spiritual and worldly needs. Amen.”
