I often hear people say, “I wish I had more faith.” While I understand what they’re saying, the statement actually misses the point of how our faith increases. Faith is not something you get more of, it is actually like a muscle that gets stronger the more it is used. It grows by exercise. There really is only one way to get more faith, and that is to use the faith you already have, no matter how small it is. How do you use the faith you have? By daring to believe God’s Word, and proving that you believe it by obeying it.
When we obey God’s Word we’re using our faith. We are saying that we believe God’s way is the right and best way to live. Our obedience is proof of our faith. And the more you obey, the more your faith will grow. Don’t wait to get more faith, use the faith you have and watch it grow!
James 2:26 “As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds [actions] is dead.”
