"Increase our Faith"
“Increase our faith.” (Luke 17:5)
"How can you tap into the faith that you already have?"
"~ Read the Bible. St. Paul tells us: “Faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the word of Christ” (Romans 10:17). Immerse yourself in Scrip-ture, and watch your knowledge, love, and trust in God grow.
~ Exercise your faith. St. James once wrote: “Faith of itself, if it does not have works, is dead” (James 2:17). Take the initiative to do God’s work on earth—especially in helping the poor and needy. Just as you would exercise your arms to make them stronger, exercising your faith will only strengthen it as you see God’s blessings on your work.
~ Journal. Many saints, like Augus-tine, used journaling as a way to deepen their faith. Jot down those times that the Lord has answered your prayers, and reread those accounts when you find fear or inse-curity hampering your faith journey.
Just as that little mustard seed amazes people in the speed and breadth of its development, if you actively work on increasing your faith, you’ll look back and marvel at the growth you have made."
“Lord, show me the path to increasing the faith that you have already given me. By your Spirit, equip me to love and serve you even more.” ~ wau.org (Word Among Us)
