LITTLE FAITH CAN GROW;
(No Amount Of Faith Is Insignificant);
TO THE BIBLE Romans 12:3 KJV
“For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.”
Stefan always thought he didn’t have enough faith as a Christian. He figured his was less than Christine’s, who always had miracles and supernatural events happening in her life. This was Stefan’s thinking till the day he heard Romans 12:3 preached in church. He suddenly realised he had all the faith he required for an awesome life and in fact could grow his faith.
This same amount of faith is what you’ve received as God’s child. Notice Paul didn’t say in Romans 12:3, “…a measure of faith”; rather, he used the definite article “the.” This shows that there’s only one measure of faith, and He gave it to you when you were born again.
You might ask, ‘If I already got the faith I require, why did Jesus then say in Mark 11:22: “Have faith in God”? Or as the margin says, “Have the faith of God.”’ As a new creation, you’re born of God’s Word, with faith in your spirit. Faith came to you as a seed when you received the Gospel, and it’s the same size given to every one of us.
What you’re supposed to do is to use it and grow it. You increase your faith by hearing the Word (Romans 10:17) and make it stronger by acting on the Word.
2 Corinthians 5:7
7 For we walk by faith, not by sight.
By Faith We Understand
Now faith is the [a]substance of things hoped for, the [b]evidence of things not seen.
Dear Father, I thank you for my faith is increased through your Word and strengthened as I act on it. I thank you for helping me build a worldovercoming faith to prevail in any situation, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
