If faith is believing in the unseen, then how do we acquire it? The answer? By hearing.
Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Before many of us were saved we heard about God in some way whether it was negative or positive. The more we heard the more we sought. The faith that was needed to accept him as our personal Lord and Savior more than likely came from wanting to be apart of what we heard or how the written word spoke to our hearts.
As we grow in the faith our faith must also increase. This is done by hearing more about the word through sermons and testimonies but also by reading the word. The more we read the more we learn, grow, and begin to trust in what it says, especially when we apply it. And the word doesn't return to us void.
If you feel that you need an increase in your faith for whatever reason this can happen in a couple of easy steps:
1) Ask for an increase in faith (Luke 17:5)
2) Read the word (Romans 10:17b)
Hear the word, speak the word, live out the word, and watch your faith increase!
