The necessity of increased faith



The necessity of increased faith

“And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.” 
Luke 17:5

Suggested Further Reading:
 Romans 4:13-25

The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” 
They went to the right person. They did not say to themselves, “I will increase my faith;” they did not cry to the minister, “Preach a comforting sermon, and increase my faith;” 
they did not say, “I will read such-and-such a book, and that will increase my faith.”

 No, they said to the Lord, “Increase our faith.” Faith’s author can alone increase it. I could inflate your faith till it turned into presumption, but I could not make it grow. 

It is God’s work to feed faith, as well as to give it life at first; and if any of you desire to have a growing faith, go and take your burden this morning to God’s throne, crying, 
“Lord, increase our faith!” 
If you feel that your troubles have been increased, 
go to the Lord, and say, “Increase our faith!” 
If your money is accumulating, go to the Lord, and say, “Increase our faith;” for you will want more faith as you get more prosperity. 

If your property is diminishing, go to him, and say, “Increase our faith,” so that what you lose in one scale you may gain in the other. Are you sickly and full of pain this morning? Go to your Master, and say, “Increase our faith, so that I may not be impatient, but be able to bear it well.” 

Are you tired and weary? Go and supplicate, “Increase our faith!” Have you little faith? Take it to God, and he will turn it into great faith. 

There is no hot-house for growing tender plants in like a house that is within the curtains—the tabernacle of God, where his glory dwells.

For meditation:

 The Christian has no need to undertake pilgrimages and to seek out so-called holy men to increase his faith. The expert in increasing faith is the very one in whom we have faith, who lives in us by his Spirit (Hebrews 12:2).

you can be accepted into his kingdom. 

I invite you to let him to make of you,

what He always wanted. 



"PRAYER" 

Marvelous God Almighty, 
I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, who died for me to make me free of sin,
 I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free. 
 I confess that He is the son of God.
 I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, 
not only to live on this earth, 
but to be expectant of my life in heaven. 
In the precious name of Jesus I ask.

 Amen

 must lie, not in its fashion and manner, 
but in the truth which it contains.”....
