Scripture Reading: “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17).
Commentary: I can’t manufacture faith. You cannot produce it. Faith simply comes to you and to me. How? By hearing the word of God. This is guaranteed by God Himself, who cannot lie. The best way for faith to grow is by improving our spiritual hearing. No, I don’t mean improving my decibels perception, auditive reception, the acoustics of my ear lobe.
(I am not trying to sell you a hearing aid!) But you and I can improve our heeding, our hearkening, our listening with the obedience factor in gear! This is better accomplished when you and I read the word of God prayerfully, in a lively dialogue with God Himself, who speaks to us personally in the Holy Scriptures. In that way faith will come abundantly to you. I can be absolutely sure. It is the guaranteed cure of unbelief!
Prayer: Prodigal Father, thank You that Your Word promises to me that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Thank You that You cannot lie! I believe You! I know You hear me praying as I also hear myself praying what You have promised me, that my faith will grow and grow as I heed and hearken to Your word. So be it. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
