Simple enough question. At some time in our lives we’ve all desired it. We usually admire those who exhibit great faith in the face of adversity. It’s just something about them that screams out strength, resilience, victory!
But how do you get this strong, enduring, I shall live and not die faith? Here’s a surprise. Most people didn’t ask for it and woke up with it the next morning. It was acquired and gained through the rigors of life.
Every human being is given a measure of faith and this measure or amount can either become larger through the act of exercising this faith or begin to diminish through inactivity and discouragement. But faith ultimately isn’t based upon what we can do. Faith is based in the belief of what GOD can do for us despite the situation.
This requires one of the greatest components of faith. Trust!
Without trust in any relationship there can be no faith in the other person. People don’t have faith in someone they don’t trust. And people don’t trust someone they don’t know.
So great faith requires trust in GOD that He will never leave you nor forsake you. This type of trust is only birthed through a closer relationship with Him. Every time your faith is tested you look to GOD for the support, the strength and the promises of His word. After every test you then grow stronger in faith. In knowing He will bring you through.
Faith that is exercised is faith that becomes strong. It’s your ability to believe GOD’S love for you and GOD’S ability to keep you through anything.
Begin to strengthen your faith today by believing what He says about you. This will require spending time with Him through His word and prayer, but I promise you won’t be disappointed by the return on your investment.
A faith that screams strength, resilience and victory others will begin to admire.
