How to Increase Your Faith
June 3, 2022
Ephesians 2:8 (KJV)
8 "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD."
Romans 12:3 (KJV)
3 "According as GOD HATH DEALT TO EVERY MAN the measure of faith."
Notes from Kennith E. Hagin:
“In teaching on the subject of faith, it is important to show people from the Scriptures that God has not blessed one person with more faith than He has blessed someone else. Folks often see someone prospering according to the Word, whether in his health, his finances, his family, and so forth, and they get the mistaken impression that God must have given that person more faith. So the first thing I want you to know is this: Every believer has been given a measure—the same measure—of the God-kind of faith.
"So we know that faith comes from God. It is the “gift of God.” But He has given it to every believer. He has given to every believer the measure, or the same measure, of faith.
"Notice also that God has done it (Rom. 12:3); it’s not something that He is going to do. We’re not trying to get faith. We’re not praying for it. We have it. Every believer already has a measure of the God-kind of faith. You see, God gets everyone started off the same way. He doesn’t give one person more faith than He gives another. He gives to every man the measure of faith. Then your faith grows according to what you do with it."
Father, thank You for the gift of faith, and for showing us how to increase it. In Jesus's name, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
