Read the Word
One of the biggest reasons people struggle in their faith lives is because of a weak Scriptural foundation. Read God’s Word or at least hear it. Romans 10:17 says, “So then, faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” If no one had ever told you about Jesus and about God’s plan for your life, or you never read about Him yourself, you would be clueless about the need for faith. Reading or hearing God’s Word is like planting a garden. If you want to grow or “build” a garden, you must first plant the seeds, or the actual plant or flower. God’s Word is the seed that grows the faith. Knowing His promises, what God says about you, about life, and about Jesus’ plan for eternal life won’t transplant themselves in your brain by osmosis. Become familiar with the Bible and what faith is all about by meditating on its contents. This will give you the basis for growing and increasing your faith.
