How to Grow Your Faith

  • Consult the scriptures:

    The Bible is God’s love letter to us, waiting to be read. Therefore, when you’re troubled and confused, the Bible is the recommended remedy for Christians. As Christians, our faith will always be tested. During these times, the Bible is the only thing we can turn to. Most times, Christians fail to see the importance of reading the Scriptures. We pray fervently but neglect the words of God. The Bible carries a message of hope and love that can help improve your faith in God. As a result, when you read the Bible, you become closer to God, and you will see his wonders. 

 

  • Build a prayerful lifestyle:

    As believers, we must learn how to pray. Basically, everyone can pray, but not everyone can make it a lifestyle. Praying is the means by which we communicate our thoughts and suffering to God, just as reading the Bible is equivalent to hearing God’s words. As a Christian, you can pray anywhere and at any moment. You don’t have to be dramatic or pray in a certain way. God listens to our heart, so pour out your heart when you pray. Through prayer, you can seek God’s guidance and also thank him for his blessings. 

 

  • Surround yourself with people of the same faith:

    Faith is an easier path to walk when you walk it with like-minded people. When our faith gets weary, having people of the same faith to confide in or seek counsel from is an advantage. The simple way to achieve this is by having a faith community, i.e., a church. A church is a community; your preacher is a leader as well as a guardian. You can seek the counsel of your pastor for support on your faith journey and be stronger.

 

  • Faith in action:

    As a Christian, your life should be a reflection of your faith. Put your faith into your actions; people around you should be able to deduce your beliefs from your actions. Be compassionate and godly, as these are evidence of Christian faith. Act out your faith; it boosts confidence and gives a sense of satisfaction that can improve one’s faith. Faith in all actions gives a sense of purpose and achievement. 

 

  • Embrace the journey:

    One of the things that dampens a person’s faith is doubt. Doubt creeps in when we are facing challenges. To counter this doubt, we first have to accept the present situation and leave it to God to take control. Life is a journey; you cannot arrive at a destination right from takeoff. The distance between a person and his destination is where doubt creeps in; if you are careless, you will never reach your destination.
