Believe it or not; the tendency to doubt is a strong fit of our human nature. A true Christian today, will let you know the choice to have faith in God is never easy, especially when we are going through. But one thing they know for sure; you will never go wrong when you place your total trust in God to handle it for you regardless how impossible your challenge may look.
The disciples understood how faith is important to God, they asked Jesus in the book of Luke chapter 17 verse 5 to “Increase their faith”. Later, Peter wrote that we must give diligent effort to increase and add to our faith (2 Peter 1:5–11). But how do we even establish faith?
Obviously the first step is to follow the disciple’s footprint:
- Ask God for faith. Faith is a gift that He wants all His children to have (John 7:38)
- Choose to trust God even when your circumstances appear contrary to your hopes.
- Don’t believe what you see or what you hear nor what you feel. Believe God’s Words in the Bible.
- Remember Jesus always keeps His promises.
Our God has big things in store for all of us but we have to have faith that He can, and will do it.
