Faith is planted within us at Salvation!
There were many times my lips utterred the phrase “I don’t have enough faith” in some aspect of reality that was going on in my life at the time.
But that statement I made and kept making was not in line with the word of God.
…as God has allotted to each a measure of faith.
Romans 12:3 NASB
What I suffered and still in some places is unbelief. I have faith as its been supplied, but I had unbelief that God could and would come through.
Thus creating a life that I have of minimal manifestation of Gods goodness in my life. He is good all the time yes, but He won’t support unbelief.
The measure of faith we have all been given is a seed within us. We have to exercise and use that faith to make it grow. Without it growing we won’t see much faith works come to pass.
My Pastor Juanita Gibbs often reinforces the fact that Faith without works is dead. My works is the fact I have to exercise faith to work out the unbelief and just trust God.
That is the only way the seed of faith in me is going to be able to grow is by cultivating that seed with proper nourishment from the word and allowing the spirit the aide in developement of it.
We all have a measure of faith. May God help our unbelief and trust Him at His word!
