We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly . . . . — 2 THESSALONIANS 1:3
God gets all believers started off equally with the measure of faith after they are born again. He doesn’t give one baby Christian more faith than He gives another. After we are born again, however, it is up to each one of us to develop the measure of faith that has been given to us.
Too many have done with their faith what the fellow did with his one talent: He wrapped it in a napkin, hid it, and didn’t use it.
Your measure of faith can be increased — it can grow. But you are the one who increases it — not God!
Your measure of faith can be increased by doing these two things: (1) Feeding it on the Word of God, and (2) Exercising it by putting it into practice.
Confession: God has given me the measure of faith. I will see to it that my faith grows exceedingly. I will feed my faith on the Word of God. I will exercise my faith — I will put it into practice. My faith is growing.
