Faith is so important, it is actually impossible to please God without faith. Don’t believe me check this out. Hebrews 11:16 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. So what are you doing to increase and strengthen your faith? It is key that we do not allow our faith to reach a level and then just stop. Of course our enemy would have us think that we have arrived, and that there is nothing more for us to do with our faith. Believe it our not some of us think we have arrived but we have not. We all have ways that we need to grow in our faith! There is always more, until Christ returns or we go home there is work to be done!
As we go through this life things can get tough, disappointment can be around every corner and well sometimes it can just be downright difficult to believe in more. Check out this verse and dig in and see how God seeks to encourage us and what He promises to us as we keep seeking to grow our faith and our dependence upon Him. Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Now that is what I call a promise. I mean cling to that and believe that He will carry us further than we ever thought that we could go. We have to run the race with His encouragement behind us always.
It can be tough to put your faith as one of the most important things in your life especially when everyone around you puts other things in the top spot. But for us as followers of Jesus we have to make our faith the most important thing to us. It has to fill our number one spot.
When we attempt to do this everything turns on us and it gets harder and harder to dig in.
Trust me as you seek to dig in and run after God first in all that you do, your faith will increase and you will grow. During the process you will need to cling to God’s promises to strengthen you and help you out along the way.
I love to call on God’s promises because in that I am increasing my faith and learning that God is so there for me and I fall more and more in Love with Him. The more that I fall in love with Him the more I grow my faith and it is an awesome cycle. Keep reading and we will show you some ways to strengthen your faith…
