Growing Your Faith: Baby Steps

Growing Your Faith: Baby Steps

Matthew‬ ‭17‬:‭20‬. This scripture has shaped the way many of us view our faith. I’m sure we have heard our fair share of sermons about how we must trust Him and never doubt. Or maybe they took the approach of how little faith we need to get something out of God. Whatever the approach, let me be the one to tell you faith doesn’t just appear. It takes work and practice. 

Here are some ways you can practice faith building:

 1. Thank Him in Advance

Part of being faithful is knowing that God will answer your prayers His way, in His time. Start thanking Him now for the things you’ve prayed for. Thank Him for your promotion, your new home, your husband, your newborn baby. Thank Him advance.

2. Start a Prayer Journal

Prayer journals are a great way to visually see the work of God in your life. Begin documenting your desires big and small. Then go back and note when God responds. Remember you might not always get what you want, but you will definitely get what you need. Take note of His wonders. Trust me His track record is outstanding. 

3. Stop Reminding God of Your Request

Reminding Him is the same as not believing that He will do it. God isn’t absent minded. He doesn’t need you to tell Him things over and over to get it done. While we should be consistent in our prayers, we should not use our prayers as a way to rush God. Learn to pray on it and leave it in his hands by having a “no reminding” rule. 

Practice these exercises over the next few weeks. Not as a test but as a tool for growth and watch your faith transform.

“And he saith unto them, Because of your little faith: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”
