Increase Your Faith!
“If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small.” Proverbs 24:10
Behind every successful dream, goal, and mission is a person who has persevered through hardship. They increased their faith in every level they might find themselves in. They persevered through adversity, pain, and suffering to achieve their goal and accomplish it. When we strive in our faith, we can achieve great things. We can overcome obstacles, setbacks, and failures if we persevere in faith. 1 John 5:4 says, “Everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.”
To win in life, we must fight the good fight of faith, run to finish the race, and embrace what we believe with confidence to the end. We must not be afraid of what lies ahead because some traces of failure or rejection that are not real will always come knocking at the door or mind when we least expect it. I believe that this is true in life, especially for those that have the opportunity to succeed. But we must never let the fear of the unknown stop us from pursuing our goals and dreams.
Hebrews 12:3 says, “Consider Jesus who endured such hostility from sinners so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”
It is okay to ask God to increase your faith, courage, and strength in prayer. The apostles once said to the Lord, “Increase our faith.” (Luke 17:5). Because we must not allow ourselves to be discouraged by discouragement, we must continue to pursue our dreams and aspirations even when they seem impossible. Jesus didn’t give us a reason to quit. He didn’t come up with an excuse for us to quit life’s challenges. Instead, He endured the trials and tribulations of life for us to enjoy and learn from the experience. Have you learned something from him?
Jesus is faithful and steadfast in his word. He never gives up on us. He never quits forgiving sinner’s sins, restoring the lost, healing the sick, giving a new life to enjoy abundance life to the fullest, and the joy of living God’s purpose despite everything he faced in the world. Therefore, you too, don’t have an excuse to quit life’s challenges. James 1:2-3 says, “Count it all joy, brethren when you meet trials of various kinds because the testing of your faith produces endurance.”
1. Dear Lord, I pray that you give me wisdom and strength to do good deeds.
2. Numbers 6:26, Oh Lord, lift your countenance towards me and give me peace in Jesus’ name.
