Thousands of books have been written on faith. . .hundreds of thousands of sermons and millions of words discuss faith. . . yet God stirred me to write seven things to make your faith grow. So, growing our faith is an ongoing project . . . one that never ends.
Faith is like a seed. . .plant it in your heart and your mind. At the appointed time. . .God will give you a mega harvest of what you need just when you need it.
Colossians 2:7 in the New Living Translation says:
“Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.”
How do you grow strong in faith. . .so you can overflow with revelation, blessings and thankfulness?
It’s a process.
Smith Wigglesworth, the anointed English Bible teacher and healer once said:
“How can one come to possess great faith? Now listen, here is the answer to that: First, the blade, then the ear, then the full corn in the ear. Faith must grow by soil, moisture, and exercise.”
Here are the seven things to make your faith grow.
1. Feed your faith. . .through the Word
Brother Kenneth Hagin said:
“Faith begins where the will of God is known.”
How do you know the will of God?
READ YOUR BIBLE. . .BEGIN DOING WHAT IT SAYS AND YOU WILL HAVE A GROWTH SPURT IN FAITH.
Psalm 34:8 says:
“O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.”
The Message Bible translation of Psalm 34:8 says:
“Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see—how good God is. Blessed are you who run to him.”
Psalm 119:103 in the Message Bible says:
“Your words are so choice, so tasty; I prefer them to the best home cooking. With your instruction, I understand life.”
By feeding on the Word. . .you never have to wonder or worry about what to do next. The Word of God is alive. It is like food that nourishes our souls. Our faith activates the Word.
John 14:26 says:
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”
