Listen to His Word, walk righteously, and pray often and fervently. Your faith will become bold and strong like a lion, and you will minister side-by-side with the fearless.
“Those who walk righteously and speak what is right… they are the ones who will dwell on the heights, whose refuge will be the mountain fortress.”
~ Isaiah 33:15-16
A constant inflow of the scriptures is vital; not necessarily read books about the Bible, but reading the books of the Bible. The consistent flow of the water of the scriptures will rinse the mind (yep, “Brainwash”) and will wear down the rough edges of the rocky personality. Faith will begin to grow and develop a firm foundation for the building of the rest of the house of faith.
“… faith comes from hearing the message… through the word about Christ.”
~ Romans 10:17
Vital to the human body is the breathing of air. So it is for our spirit, we need to breath-in the Holy Spirit and exhale prayers of surrender to God, worship of God, and intercessions for God. As we pray, our faith grows strong, and we begin to be utilized by God for the prayer of faith so that His kingdom can come and His will can be done “on earth as it is in Heaven” (from The Lord’s Prayer). Jude also addresses the building of faith through the practice of prayer:
“… by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit…”
~ Jude 1:20
The secret to building faith is hidden right out in the open, but it is implemented in the private life.
