The Bible Helps Our Faith to Grow

Faith comes by hearing the Word of God.[1] Our faith grows by exposing ourselves to truths of the Bible. I’ve had people share with me, “You preached [a particular message] and it changed my life…” “It changed my perspective.”

Paul said,

Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!

“For who has known the mind of the Lord?

Or who has become His counselor?”

“Or who has first given to Him

And it shall be repaid to him?”

For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever.[2]

Reading God’s Word magnifies Him in our eyes.

We begin to see how big God is, and compared to Him our problems are small and they shrink in our own eyes. As a result, our faith grows.
