So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 5:1
Grow Your Faith
If you want to grow in your faith, you must spend time in God’s Word. No other practice will help build your faith, like reading and studying the Bible. The Bible is the foundation of the Christian faith. So many Christians flounder in their walk with God because they don’t spend time reading the Bible and allowing God’s Word to penetrate their hearts. God’s word must become the cornerstone for your living.
The Word of God Changes You
The Word of God is a transformational book. If you allow it, it will reshape your thinking and life. It will help you line up your life with the will of God and His direction for you.
Your faith grows as you spend time in the Word of God. To get started, find a Bible you can understand. There are many good translations available that aren’t difficult to read. I personally like the English Standard Version, the New American Standard Version, and even the New Living Translation. Spend some time every day reading and studying the Bible. Finding a great church where the pastor preaches and teaches the Word of God will also help strengthen your faith.
Allow God to Speak
Finally, don’t just read the Bible. As you read, ask God to open your heart and let it speak to you. Find ways to apply what you read into your daily life. Allow the Holy Spirit to move God’s Word from your head to your heart.
As you commit to spending time in God’s Word each day, you will be amazed at how your faith grows, and your Christian life improves.
Look at this promise again.
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. – Romans 10:17
