Faith will be challenged. When we look at faith in another lens, our gift of faith from God will be challenged by the enemy. Challenges in life can come in many ways. Each test will strengthen your faith. Faith without works is dead. It does not good to have faith to receive something that you already have. If you already have it, then faith is not needed. Each trial and test in your life strengthens your faith. Without faith, it is impossible to please God.
As you develop a closer walk with Jesus, you will realize that you are who God says you are. You are not your situation. You are not your financial status. You are not even what other people say about you. You are a child of the Most High God. You are more than a conqueror. You are blessed. You are healed. You are prosperous. You are who God says you are. You are a designed transformation. You were made in his image.
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. The bible says Ask and it shall be given unto you, seek and ye shall find, knock and the door shall be opened unto you.
Faith is a gift that can be given freely by God. If your faith is lacking, ask and it will be given to you. It is just as simple as that. Just ask. You will be blessed generously with the Gift of Faith.
Where is your faith? Is it as small as a mustard seed? That is all that you need. If you are like some high achievers, you will assume that this is not enough. We are only human. When we discover something that works, we want it in abundance.
Since faith is a gift from God, he determines the amount of faith that you will possess. He gives gifts freely. Once you begin to have faith, it can begin to grow as the mind is renewed.
There are several accounts in the bible in which Jesus points out that his disciples had little faith. Two are as follows:
#1 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Matthew 6:30
#2 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. Matthew 8:26
These two scriptures show us that God takes care of us. They also tell us that the ability to handle crisis was limited due to limited faith. Doubt and fear are never good things in a believer’s life.
Read the Bible, listen to His Word, and study the promises of God. Most importantly, remain thankful and humble yourself, knowing that every good and perfect gift comes from God.
