Stronger Faith Starts Today!
Here is something I would like you to consider: Ask yourself the question, “Do you have stronger faith than a year ago at this time?” God tells us in the Bible, “Truly I say to you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20
Do you think your faith increases because you become more aware of all the blessings that God has given you? I think that it is very true that the more you are aware of God in your life, the better off you will be. I trust that God has a plan for your life, a plan not to harm you but give you hope. When you question your faith, take a minute to think to yourself of some of the things that God has done in your life already which will stop those thoughts from tempting you to doubt. Those thoughts are not from God, they are from the evil one. Remember that the Bible teaches us that in the end, that God is victorious and Satan is defeated. ~ Bill Greguska
An Analogy of What is Stronger Faith is!
We have confidence that when we sit on a chair, it is critical that the chair will be able to support us. As a person grows in their Christian life, their faith in God is like sitting in a chair, not doubting every time they sit down whether or not the chair (God) will hold them up. Our faith in God should be just like that! The important thing is not necessarily the person’s faith, but whom or what the person puts their faith in. Is your belief in God, Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit? Or is your faith is someone or something else that will ultimately let you down at some point? Ask yourself, do I have enough faith? And is that faith in someone trustworthy such as God?
Do You Want Stronger Faith in God And to do His Will?
Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
Matthew 15:28 Then Jesus said to her, “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.” And her daughter was healed at that moment.
Faith is a Gift From God, Yet Needs to Be Made Strengthened.
It would be easy to understand if you prayed to God over and over, and your prayers have not answered the way you wanted them to be answered, and then a person could reason that their faith was useless. Although, through my experience I remember praying and praying about things, and not getting my prayer answered, later on, to discover that it would not have been best that my prayer got responded to the way I asked.
What I was praying for was that I would make it into the NBA when I was in grade school and high school. Yes, I was somewhat disappointed, but it dawned on me knowing how much I do not like to travel, and being in the NBA would mean a lot of traveling! I am sure that you can think of a time when you felt disappointed but later realized that everything was going to work out for the best. God is in control, and He knows what is best for you and me. He has proven that to me time after time again! Can you think of your analogy about faith?
