WAYS TO STRENGTHEN YOUR FAITH

Philippians 4:11-13

 

 

Paul starts off in verse 11 by saying that he has learned to be continue in all of his circumstances. In verse 12, he shares the circumstances of being humble, rich, being filled or going hungry…

Then Paul shares how he has learned to do this…. His faith has been strengthened.

 

Let’s look at four ways to strengthen our faith today..

 

  1. Consider its Preeminence –

          Through Him – faith is through Jesus.

          Ephesians 2:8 – “For it is by grace that you have been saved through faith; and that  

          not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.”

          Faith is also the way that we receive from God…Philippians 4:19

 

 

  1. Cherish its Privilege

Faith cannot be both or earned….it is God’s FREE Gift to His children.  In Ephesians 6:16, we “take up the Shield of Faith” for a reason…”to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.”  It is given to you to take up…cherish it…

 

 

***In order to strengthen your Faith, you must put it to use.

James 2:17 says, “Faith without works is dead.”

 

Are we sitting down on our faith and not using it? Then it is “dead faith”.

 

  1.  Comprehend its Power

Paul says, “I can do all things” – After taking up the shield of faith in Ephesians 2:16, he says, “wherewith ye shall be able.”

Faith releases the omnipotent power of God in your life.  It enables us to live victoriously and effectively for God.

 

  1.  Cultivate the Possibilities

Paul says, “ALL Things”..

By faith through Him I can do all things. That’s a lot of possibilities. Faith in Him can handle “all” problems.

 

 

Mark 11:22 says,

“And Jesus answered saying to them,

“Have faith in God.”
