Growing Your Faith

The apostle Paul gave thanks to God for the brethren in Thessalonica. "We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly" (2 The. 1:3a). The apostle had started the church in Thessalonica. He had seen men and women come to believe in Jesus as the Christ. But now he was witness to a great growth in their faith. What about you? Is your faith growing?

Do you have greater belief that there is a creator, God, that made everything that you see?

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: (Rom. 1:19-20)

When you look at the beauty and symmetry of a flower, when you see the birth of a baby, when you experience the wonderful functions of a human body, and when you observe the changing of the seasons and return of the rain, do you confess that there must be a God? When scientists search deep within the cells of living organisms and report the immense complexity and amazing functionality that they find, there has to be a master designer; does this strengthen your belief?

But beyond your belief in God, have you grown to trust Him? Do you see the fulfillment of His promises in your life?
