God Gives Faith

God not only requires faith, but He also provides faith. God gives the measure of faith to each person as needed. You receive that faith through the Spirit of God, according to the word of God. When you quench or resist the Holy Spirit, your faith grows weaker. When you yield and obey the Holy Spirit, according to the word of God, your faith grows stronger.

Do you want a stronger faith? It is available as a gift from God. It is focused upon God through Christ. As you confess your sins that have hindered the Holy Spirit working in you, God is more than able to give you the faith to do His will.

Faith from God brings faith in God. Therefore, you give Him all the glory. Having faith in God is not about trying harder. You may be trying too hard. Rest in God. It's about God working in you. Have faith in God. But first, receive faith from God.

"So Jesus answered and said unto them, 
'Have faith in God."
Mark 11:22

"God has dealt to each one a measure of faith."
Romans 12:3

"So then faith comes by hearing,
and hearing by the word of God."
Romans 10:17
