If you’re like me, you don’t want the three-hour sermon on how to increase your faith. You just want one thing. RESULTS.
You don’t want a lecture. You don’t want the side-eye from people who don’t “understand” why your faith doesn’t match theirs. You simply want what works.
I found three things have helped me when my faith was low and I needed that extra boost. I’d like to share them with you today.
“…for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.” Matthew 17:20
Instead of waiting for your faith to increase, use the faith you have. Begin to believe God to heal your headache, your cold. Once we begin to see results in these areas we’ll begin to trust God for more. Just like a child learning to walk, we get our strength one step at a time. So believe God to help you make it through the day. Soon you’ll believe Him to excel everyday in every way.
“Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.” 2 Chronicles 20:20
The word that is spoken over your life will happen. No matter how long it takes, no matter who doubts it. A true word from God, from a true prophet, will not fall to the ground. Almost 15 years passed between the time Samuel first anointed David, until the time he assumed the throne of Judah. It then took an 7 additional years before he was anointed kind of all of Israel. So don’t fret and don’t give up. It’s coming.
“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:20
Surround yourself with people of faith who are believing God for extraordinary things. Something happens when we are around people of faith. They are firestarters. They help the dying flames of our faith flourish again.
You simply cannot be around believers for a long time and stay the same. Your faith will grow and you’ll find strength and courage to believe again.
I’ve learned that developing Godlike faith doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time. It takes courage. And get ready for it…It takes obstacles.
Greater faith comes after you’ve persevered through some dark nights and endured some lonely days. But one thing is sure, if we hold on, it does come.
