God’s Word Builds My Faith
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Growing Your Faith
We all want to grow in our faith; however, there is only one main way your faith grows.
If you want to grow in your faith, you must spend time in God’s Word. No other practice will help you grow in your faith, like reading and studying the Bible. The Bible is the basis 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 foundation for your living.
The Word of God is a transformational book. If you allow it, it will transform 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 ESV – English Standard Version, the NASB – New American Standard Version, and even the NLT – New Living Translation. Spend a little time every day reading and studying it. Find a great church where the pastor preaches and teaches the Word of God will also help strengthen your faith.
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 Christian life improves.
Look at the promise again.
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. – Romans 10:17
Make this confession.
- God’s Word is the foundation of my faith.
- My faith will grow as I read and study the Bible.
- When I read the Bible, I ask God to speak to me.
- I commit to spending time reading the Bible every day this week.
In Jesus name,
The Word of God awakens your faith. It teaches you what God is like, how to live the Christian life, and inspires you to be all God has called you to be.
