Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17, NKJV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Do you desire to have more faith? Scripture tells us that faith can grow and increase. Notice that todays scripture doesnt say, Faith comes by having heard the Word of God one time. It says that faith comes by hearing in the present tense. We have to hear the Word of God over and over again in order for it to take root in our hearts and transform our minds. Sure, Gods Word can transform us in an instant, but most of the time, our faith grows as we hear the Word of God again and again.
Just as a seed needs water daily to grow, your spirit needs the Word of God daily. The more you hear Gods Word, the more you know Him. The more you know Him, the more you will be able to believe Him and thats what faith is!
Today, why dont you choose a few scriptures to meditate on? Write them down and carry them in your purse or wallet. Let that truth sink down into your soul. Let the truth of the Word transform you and move you forward into the abundant life God has prepared for you!
A Prayer for Today
Father in heaven, thank You for Your Word that is living and active and growing in my life. I submit myself to You today and ask You to teach me Your ways. Give me insight into Your Word so that I may know You more in Jesus name. Amen.
