CAN YOU INCREASE YOUR FAITH

For much of my Christian life, I would often hear phrases like, "you need more faith"or "if you had more faith, you could be healed.If experiencing physical healing or receiving God's miracles required more faith, then I wanted it. Who wouldn't? But can a person increase their faith? Even Jesus' disciples wanted the answer to this question when they asked "increase our faithin Luke 17:5.
 

The idea that we need to have more faith is a lie that has been perpetuated in the church for centuries. The truth is that you already have enough faith. You have enough faith because you have Jesus Christ. Don't focus on your faith, focus on Christ and depend on His faith to sustain you. His strength is perfected in our weakness. You don't need more faith. You already have THE measure of faith according the Bible. (Rom 12:3) You simply need to realize what you already possess in Jesus Christ. Jesus'faith was implanted in your heart when you accepted Him as your Savior. So when you feel like your faith is weak, defer to Him because His faith is more than enough and will never let you down.

 

"I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me."

Galatians 2:20

 

"Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith..."
Hebrews 12:2a
