Have Faith in God

Faith is incredibly important in the Christian life! Here are 3 key ways to strengthen your faith.

Having faith is very important in the Christian life. The Bible says "He that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him."

How do we have faith? There are many ways we can strengthen our faith, but here are 3 that can be of help.

  1. Immerse yourself in God's Word. The Bible says "Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God." The Bible is God's Word.  Even Jesus, when He was tempted, responding by quoting God's Word.  Make the decision that if God clearly says something, you will put your trust in His Word and then stand on that belief.

  2. Take little steps of faith each and every day. Sometimes we think "I could never have faith to move mountains." When David had the faith to go up against Goliath, he said that the same God who delivered him from the lion and the bear could deliver him from the giant. So ask God what He would like you to do in life; and then obey! Sometimes little acts of faith can grow into mighty miracles with God's blessing.

  3. Don't rely on your own understanding. God's ways are not our ways. As humans we tend to want to control everything and manage our own lives. While it is good to be responsible, take your hands off the steering wheel and let God guide your life. This will take faith, since you are putting God in control and not yourself, but this can also bring true freedom. Put God in control and not yourself.

So immerse yourself in God's Word; take little steps of faith every day; put God -- and not yourself -- in control of your life.
