Deep Secret On Growing In Faith

Hebrews 11
[6]But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (KJV)
This is a great bible verse on growing in faith.

faith in Greek is εὐαρεστῆσαι which is translated to carry out [his will]

For us to even please God we need to apply faith. Faith makes us carry out his will, do his command and automatically submit ourselves to himself.

Some have said I have tried pleasing him but I just can’t!
I have tried following the scripture but it is not just working!!
I have tried being obedient to His voice but I just can’t succumb myself to him totally!!!

Then the big question is why?
Why I am not pleasing him as I ought to?
Many preacher has given us why we should please God, why we are not pleasing God, consequences of not pleasing God but I have realize only 20% has given us how to please God…
We will learn about how we can please God today even as we learn out growing in faith.

Growing means developing, increasing in size.
Faith means believing, complete trust, confidence

Growing in faith simply means developing and increasing in your ability to trust and have confidence in God.

The more you trust God the less you begin to see a problem as problem.

When I trust God, I hand over all the situation to him

Do you know the moment you begin to trust God you are telling him

Sir, my problem has become your problem……Help me

Indirectly when you are saying God help me, you are saying Father, help yourself. Why did I say this?

Trust enables the people to see Christ in you when God is looking at you, He is looking at Christ, when God is seeing a problem in your life, He is seeing a problem in Jesus life.

Let take some scriptures.
[14-16]Now that we know what we have—Jesus, this great High Priest with ready access to God—let’s not let it slip through our fingers. We don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all—all but the sin. So let’s walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help. (MSG)

Let me ask this question,

What is the highest thing God can give you?
Can He give you solution to your problems?

If Yes!!! Then read on

The secret to growing in faith is found here, even as we have already believed

…let us walk right up to him and get what He is so ready to give…

You may say, what about if He is not ready to give me my desires?

Let see

John 16 | NIV
[14] He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you.
[15] All that belongs to the Father is mine, That why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make known to you.

if all that the Father has belongs to Jesus, all that Jesus belongs to you because you believe in him.

The big question is then, what does Jesus have?

Eph 1| NIV
[20] Which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right had in the heavenly realms.
[21] far above all the rule and authority , power and dominion, and every title that has been given, not only in this present age but also in the one to come.
[22] And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be the head over everything for the church.

What Christ have is authority over all things [principalities, witchcraft, marine powers, curses, lack and sickness, death].

He is seated with God, at God right hand. He has been placed above all things named even the devil.

The most joyful part is everything Christ is today is done because of you vs 22 said

for the church….

He was placed in power because of you, He overcame the devil because of you, He was given a name above all name because of you so….

You are the focus of God, you are his central of attraction.

To grow in faith you need to understand these facts:

  1. Everything you need to succeed has been put in place for you.
  2. All obstacles have been erased for you.
  3. All battles have been won for you.
  4. All you need are been supply to you.

You wake up in the morning without the hope of eating that day, just focus on

All my needs are been provided for me, I am going out today to reap the reward of it.

You are jobless and without hope

All that I need to succeed has been put in place for me, I am going on this interview to get the job.
This job has been waiting for me, I am going to get them.

When you are fighting battles and curses

I have been wasting time fighting this unnecessary curse, I have realized am not cursed and all my curses are broken. I am free.
This is an already won battle, I overlook and I walk pass it. I am the next to testify.

The more you know about God, the more you increase in faith.

Christians walk by faith not by works.

This is the greatest prayer one that is growing in faith can pray
Learn to be positive even in the hardest time.

Seek more revelation because revelation sometimes is all that is needed to solve a problem.
