Five Things God Uses to Grow Your Faith
What Grows Our Faith?
First, the answer is not a list you do, like if you do these five things God will make your Faith BIG. Secondly, this is not a list that’s in the Bible. I want to talk about these five things: because I think as you evaluate your experience up to this point, and as you continue on your faith journey, you’ll see that God uses at least these five things to grow your faith. So I want you to be aware of them.
The first one is Practical Teaching. Practical teaching is basically biblical teaching.
When you look back on your journey, you can often clearly see someone who was providential. Like God put them in your life for a reason, specifically planted them there.
These are the private disciplines that you begin to do on your own. And through these disciplines, God begins to do something in your heart and your faith gets bigger.
These are the moments where you are moved into service to serve other people in Jesus’ name, even if you are scared to death.
When people tell their faith story, there’s often a pivotal circumstance that could have gone either way and sometimes it’s bad and sometimes it’s good. But all so often, God uses this pivotal circumstance to build your faith.
Over the next five weeks, we’ll look at each of these five things. And at the end, you will be a little smarter and I hope more obedient. But even more so, I hope we are all more dependent on God, more confident in God, trust Him more as we grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ. I hope that we have BIG Faith.
