Webster’s Dictionary defines faith as something that is believed especially with strong conviction. The Word of God teaches us that, “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” (Romans 10:17). The beauty of this scripture is that the more you hear God’s Word, the more your faith increases. In another way, that means that your capacity to believe in God and what He says in His Word with strong conviction grows and enlarges to the point where you find that a life of faith becomes more than a life preserver, it becomes your very lifestyle. As a lifestyle, faith now becomes an action word – something that you do, and not merely a noun which you possess. As an action word, a lifestyle of faith challenges us to vocalize what faith says about every situation that we face and then further challenges us to make sure our actions line up with what we believe. It’s a lifestyle of constant movement based on what we know to be true about our God. Our God is Big and serving a big God leads us to have big faith if we only allow His Word to grow big in our lives. Faith can’t work where doubt is present. So starve your doubts and feed your faith by the Word of God. Big God…Big Faith!
