It is impossible to have faith unless you have the Word.

It is impossible to have faith unless you have the Word.

The Bible says that faith comes from the Word of God (Romans 10:17). That’s a basic spiritual law, as sure as what goes up comes down. So if you’re weak in faith it’s because you’re weak in the Word.

The cure for doubts is the Word. Faith comes, it grows, by hearing the Word of God. It’s not a sudden boom. It is something that is built by faithful study of God’s Word.

Faith isn’t something you work up, muster up, or polish up by your own efforts and strength. Accepting faith through His Word is a work of God’s grace. All you have to do is desire and receive it. Jesus even gives you faith to believe His Word. Jesus is the “author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2).

Don’t neglect His Word. It is food for your soul and gives you strength for the daily battles of life. It is His Word by His Spirit in His love that makes you strong. So read it prayerfully and ask God to increase your faith, and He will. He never fails! He’ll always answer the hungry heart.
