TOPIC: GROWING YOUR FAITH
Scriptures : 2 Thessalonians 1: 3. We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth;
Beloved, I welcome you to another moment of encounter! Previously, we established that faith is a living component! Today, we shall be seeing how to grow your faith.
Our anchor scripture reveals that the faith of the Thessalonians was growing exceedingly, which means faith can grow!
How then does faith grow?
1. It is by connecting with the light of the word of God. We are born of the word:
1 Peter 1: 23. Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
So, we must remain connected to the word of God to grow in faith. We must remain connected to the light of the word of God to grow in faith.
What connection exists between the word of God and light that grows our faith?
a. Light is key to faith foundation (PS. 119:105, Rom. 10:17). The Bible reveals that the word of God is Light and that faith comes by hearing the word of God.
Therefore, it is safe to say that faith comes by receiving light. How much faith is at work in your life depends on how much light you have received!
Beloved, I don’t know how great your faith is now, but one thing is certain, your faith grows when your light grows.
The brighter your light from the word of God, the stronger your faith. Zero light equals zero faith. And little light equals little faith. And great light equal great faith.
b. Light is the sponsor of faith. The Bible speaking of the Berea brethren who were more noble than others because, they received the word of God with all readiness and the result is seen in their faith.
Acts 17: 11. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
Nothing sponsors faith like revelational light of the scripture. To ignore the light of the word of God is to be bankrupt of faith.
Beloved, I appeal to you that you receive the word of God with all readiness because that is the chief sponsor of light and light is the fuel of fatith.
c. Light is the source of faith (1Jn.1:5,Heb.11:3). God began the work of creation by calling for light out of the darkness :
Genesis 1: 3. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
When light appears, faith comes alive because the source of faith is light. It was upon the arrival of light that God began to call those things that be not as though they were(Rom.4:17).
Beloved, until you encounter the God of all creation, you may never understand the mystery of faith(1Tim.3:9).
All things began with God including faith. You may say well I have faith even without God. If God is not the object of your faith, then your faith is baseless. God is the basis of faith, He is the origin of all things including light, the source of faith.
Beloved, have you met with this God that transformed my life from nobody to somebody?
If NO, please I want you to meet my God today by surrendering your life to Jesus Christ. Until you are born of God, you don’t have capacity to grow in faith and as such, victory will continue to elude you :
1 John 5: 4. For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real! The end point of every mankind is either Heaven or hell depending on what we do with Jesus. Jesus loves you.
Prayer points :
– Father thank you for your word to me today
– Lord give me grace to receive light from your word that sponsors faith in Jesus name.
Prophetic Declaration :
– I prophesy every stagnant faith begins to grow and every dead faith comes alive now by the power of this word in the name of Jesus.
– Your season of victory is here! Receive the power to reign over .the challenges of your life in the name of Jesus.
From your brother Alex
God bless you.
