So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ. – Romans 10:17 (NLT)
I have a friend that has a puppy. When my friend got her dog he was so small and cute. I didn’t see the puppy for a month or two and when I did, I couldn’t believe the transformation. My friend’s dog was huge! He had really grown. With several months of feeding and good care, my friend’s dog had gotten big.
Like my friend’s puppy, when you feed something, it will grow.
When it comes to the things of God, we sometimes don’t take the time to feed them. Instead, we fill our lives up with friends, sports and video games. None of those things are bad, however, they don’t do anything to feed your faith. Just like a dog, your faith needs to be fed to grow.
Today’s Challenge: What will you do today to grow your faith?
If you want to do the things God is stirring in your heart to do, you’re going to have to begin to grow your faith. God isn’t going to call you to do something you can do by yourself. So it’s going to take faith to stick it out and see it through.
To grow your faith, you’ve got to spend time digging into God’s word. You might begin by watching some YouTube videos, reading devotions from our website, or downloading the Bible app. It doesn’t matter how you do it, what matters is that you’re making a conscious effort each day to grow your faith.
Determine today that you are going to spend time in God’s word and grow your faith!
