Growing Your Faith

Growing Your Faith

 

 

…according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith” (Romans 12:3).

 

 

       Faith is the principle of life for the believer (Hebrew 10:38). The Bible clearly emphasizes that “…without faith it is impossible to please him [God]” (Hebrew 11:6). The Bible also tells us that God has already dealt to every man—every one of us in the body of Christ—the measure of faith.

 

 

       Notice He didn’t say ‘a measure,’ but ‘the measure’ of faith. That’s significant because each of us received the same definite amount of faith as any other Christian when we received the message of salvation to be born again. But one thing God expects of you is to increase your faith.

 

       God, through His Word, has clearly unveiled to us how to grow our faith great and strong and make it effective. First, you have to stay continually in the Word; studying the Word with undivided attention. The more you study God’s Word, the more faith rises in you like a giant, causing your spirit to be stirred and energized: “…faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God” (Romans 10:17).

 

 

       Secondly, your faith can also be built as you fellowship with other believers. The Bible charged us not to forsake “…the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching” (Hebrews 10:25).

 

        Make attending church services and meetings a top priority.

 

       Then, thirdly, cultivate a rich culture of prayer. Learn to enjoy a rich fellowship with the Holy Spirit in prayer by speaking in other tongues: “But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost” (Jude 1:20). Lastly, get rich Christian materials and study them for yourself (2 Timothy 2:15). We have several transformational teachings on faith in books, tapes, audio and video CDs, and DVDs. Get, read and listen to or watch them.

 

      As you do, whatever the Spirit of God ministers to you put it to work in your life and you’ll grow prevailing faith.

 

 

Prayer

 

Dear Father,

I commend my heart to your Word, which is able to build me up and give me an inheritance among them that are sanctified. I declare that today, my faith is strengthened and improved. I’m growing in grace and in the knowledge of the Word, in Jesus’ Name.

Amen.
