Read Rick’s 31-Day Devotions
Faith is like a stool upon which you sit. To be “in faith” is to make sure your stool has balance. That stool has four legs: Canon, Community, Conscience, and Comforter. If you place yourself in a context where these four means of grace are operative in your life, you will be safe to move forward with what you want to do. Let’s examine each one.
Most poor decisions happen because the person who made the decision was not benefiting from these four means of grace that the Lord provides for us. They either did not know about this process or, even more sinister, they did not want to learn from one of them. One of the marks of humility is when a person will hold their ideas loosely while submitting them to God’s Word and His community for more careful analysis.
