What is Faith?

I believe Faith is a convincing settled belief in God.  It is like a muscle that must be exercised in order to gain strength.

The Bible tells us without faith it is impossible to please God because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. (Hebrews 11:6)

But, most of us struggle with this very requirement of us from God.  We go through our day to day lives believing in him yet not fully having faith that he will see us through.  Not having faith that he will provide the job or the clients for us.  We have so many doubts.  Not because we don’t believe in him...but simply because we lack faith in him.

How do we increase our faith?

We can only increase our faith by exercising our “faith muscle”.  The bible tells us that faith comes by hearing the word of God. (Romans 10:17)

We must constantly get into the WORD of God.  Read, meditate on his words, ask him for wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.  Be consistent in our quest for increased faith.

This is the best and the surest way for us to increase our faith.
