Devotion: How Do I Get Faith?


Faith, how does one get faith?  Scripture tells us “God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith” (Romans 12:3).  And while some translations may use the phrase, “a measure of faith,” we know that God, who is not a respecter of person and treats everyone the same (Romans 2:11), would not give everyone “a” (indefinite article) random or varied amount of faith but “the” (definite article) same amount of faith.  But you may ask, “Why do some people appear to have more faith than others?”  The answer is exercise.  You can build up your faith by exercising it, like you would when building up your muscles, through exercise.

Your faith must grow in order for you to profit from having it.  Your faith must be developed.  To develop your faith, it must be fed, for nothing grows unless it is fed.  If you feed your faith “you may grow up into Him” (Ephesians 4:15), “grow up in the fullness of your salvation” (I Peter 2:2), “grow in spiritual strength (grace) and become better acquainted with our Lord” (II Peter 3:18).  The only way to increase your faith is through the knowledge gathered through the word of God (Romans 10:17).

We pray that this message will be an inspiration to you as well as a blessing and that you will be the better for having read it.  Please share this message so that others may be blessed as well.  Amen.

Enjoy your blessings. - KW
