Strengthening Our Faith-Part 11

February 15, 2016

 

Luke 17:5-6“ And the apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith.” So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.”

When we ask God to increase our faith, it is not going to be the way we think. God chooses to strengthen our faith through the hardships He allows into our lives. Yes, you and I will go through hard times. It is the way God operates. Only God is the giver of faith and only He can increase our faith.

You see not only did the Apostles need faith but their faith had to be exercised. And you and I must exercise our faith as well as we step out moment-by-moment and day-by-day to do the things God has called us to do.
