Faith comes only through one way and this is by hearing the word of God. Faith comes when you consume God’s word in every way possible over a period of time. To develop your faith as a Christian, you must first strengthen it by hearing God’s word either by physical attendance in a church or via media technology. You do this also by reading the Bible and anointed books by genuine men of God.
The next step is to practise faith. Consider this: if you want to learn how to drive and all you do is spend your time reading the theory of driving, you’ll never really know how to drive except you practise with a car. So also, to develop your faith, you must learn to put everything you’ve heard or read into practice in your daily activities.
A lot of Christians complain that they can’t get their faith to work for them. The problem they have is simple: they’re violating the primary law of faith which is what I like to call the Law of Total Confidence.
In 1 John 5:14-15, the Bible tells us that there’s an approach you must take to your faith before your faith becomes your reality. This means that you must go beyond the level of just “believing God” for something to “KNOWING” that it is yours. In other words, you need to be confident in God’s ability.
When you approach God, you must develop the KNOWING in your heart that God is more than capable of meeting your need. All you need to do is simply remind Him in accordance with the scripture on which you’re standing.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to develop my faith in You; help me to consistently walk in total confidence in Your ability in Jesus’ name. Amen!
