Introduction: Faith is a living force and because it is living, it has ability to grow.

“We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth.” – 2 Thess. 1:3.

How then do we grow our faith?

Faith grows by undertaking the following tasks:

  • By hearing and the studying the word of God consistently.(Romans 10:17,Pro.4:20, 2 Tim2:15)
  • By praying for the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation. (Eph.1:17-18)
  • By praying in the Holy Ghost .(Jude 20)
  • By coveting the gift of faith. (ICor.12 :7-9 & 31)

Now, Lets examine the forces that boost the power of faith. Faith can be activated by engaging the following forces.

The Force of Hope: Faith is activated by hope.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” – Heb 11:1.

Every child of God has a living hope.

“For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion.” – Eccl.9:4, Rom. 5:5, 1Peter 1:3.

-Abraham engaged the force of hope for his triumph. (Rom. 4:18-21)

-Hope is a vital force that keeps faith alive until the desired result is delivered.

-But Hope also is activated by revelation of the word. (Rom.15:4)

  • By the Force of Love:

Faith works by love – Gal.5:6

“And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.” – 1 Cor. 13:2

  • Revelation is the mother of faith but love is the mother of revelation (John 15:15,1 cor.2:9-10)
  • David a man after God‘s heart was a man of unusual depth in revelation. (Acts. 2:30,Acts.13:22)
