God takes the tiniest bit of faith we have and make it grow into something big when we act on it. The Bible says that “God has dealt to each one a measure of faith” (Romans 12:3). We already have some faith to start with. When we step out in that faith, God increases our faith. In other words, acting in faith begets more faith.
We have no idea what great things God wants to do through us if we will just step out in faith when He asks us to. That’s why He lets us go through some difficult times. Times when we feel weak and vulnerable. He allows certain things to happen so that we will turn to Him and give Him our full attention. It’s in those times, when we are forced to pray in greater faith, that our faith grows stronger.
Even when your faith seems small, you can still speak in faith to the mountains in your life and tell them to move, and God will do the impossible. You can pray for the crippled parts of your life to be healed and God will restore them. You can ask God to increase your faith and give you boldness to act on it, and He will do it.
What prayer would you like to boldly pray in faith and see answered? What would you like to see accomplished in your life, or in the life of someone you know, that would take a prayer of great faith? Ask God to take that seed you have and grow it into a giant tree of faith so you can see these things come to pass.
Dear Lord, increase my faith. Teach me how to “walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7). Give me strength to stand strong on Your promises and believe Your ever word. Lord, I know that “he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind” (James 1:6). I confess any doubt I have as sin before You, and I ask You to forgive me. I don’t want to hinder what You want to do in me and through me because of doubt. Increase my faith daily so that I can move mountains in Your name.
In Jesus name I pray
So Jesus said to them…”For assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
