How do you grow your Faith? But there are actually simple way to be able to increase our reliance on God.
Basically, one of the most important thing to do is for you to read the Word. Hearing the Word of God is also another step aside from reading the Word. You can be able to compare it to planting a garden when you hear or read God’s Word. In order for you to build or grow a garden, you need to first plant the actual plant or the seeds or the flower for it to grow. The Word of God can be considered as the seed that will help to grow one’s Faith. The plans of Jesus into your eternal life, knowing God’s promises, and knowing what God would say about you won’t easily transplant themselves right into your brain by the process of osmosis. That is why you need to be familiar with the Bible and know what faith can be all about by meditating into its contents. This can be able to be your basis for increasing your faith and growing your resilience to God.
Next you need to heed the Word. If we are to fail to give our full attention towards what we are reading in the Bible, we are going to be stagnant and we we fail to grow. But in the very first place, we need to have greater faith in order for us to be a child of God. For this reason, so that we can increase on our faith and grow more, we need to be able to make use of that “measure” of faith that God has given towards use and we have to build on it.
Finally, we can increase on out faith by testing the Word of God. There is actually a difference in “testing” our God by “contesting” Him, and proving that His Word is actually true. The very process of testing the measures of our faith may involve some trials and hardships along the way. We can be able to grow our faith with all of the circumstances that we encountered in our life. As we are face with the various trails or problems, we know that god is just testing us in our perseverance and for us to keep hold into His promise that we are going to call upon Him and go back to what He had promise to us. Growing our Faith needs trust and lifting it all to God that He is the great provider and the sustainer of life. Growing our faith in God needs perseverance and this is what HE asked from us.
