GROWING IN FAITH
“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17
“being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;” Philippians 1:6″When Jesus departed from there, two blind men followed Him, crying out and saying, “Son of David, have mercy on us!”
And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”
They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.”
Then He touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith let it be to you.” And their eyes were opened. And Jesus sternly warned them, saying, “See that no one knows it.” But when they had departed, they spread the news about Him in all that country.” Matthew 9:27-31
Know what I thought of when I read this story recently and saw the beautiful faith of the two blind men who believed the Lord would have mercy on them and heal them?
How incredibly far short I still fall when it comes to having faith in the Lord even in the smallest of matters even while people like those blind men had faith in the Lord concerning something so enormous. Thank the Lord He is so merciful with me as He teaches me to live by faith.
The Lord in His amazing love, grace, kindness, tenderness, and patience, instead of raging at me and being disgusted with me and giving up on me for having such a long way to go when it comes to my faith, gently, lovingly, mercifully helps me day by day to read the Bible, to spend time in His presence, to follow Him, and to grow in my faith in Him.
Have some growing to do? I sure do! And I am totally committed to doing it. By spending time alone with Jesus, by digging deep into His Word, by hearing good solid preaching that lines up with the Bible, and by listening to the voice of the Spirit of God as He speaks to my heart in line with His Word. Ready to grow in faith?
