Today’s Scripture Sundays is based on Romans 10:7.
This right here I know is a constant battle for a lot of people and if I am honest I think it’s one of those battles we will forever be fighting because we are only human. It’s a journey!
So many times I have wrongfully doubted God and thought I knew better, even though time and time again he would prove to me that he knows best. I am definitely working on trying to increase my faith in Him and not in that of Man. For me that involves a lot of time in prayer and meditating on his word over and over again. His word reminds me that even though as humans we go through bad times, they never last, in fact these times often mould us into the person God wants us to be. It’s true – think about it.
The scripture tells us that every person has been given a measure of faith. That faith can grow and increase or it can be diminished. Notice the scripture doesn’t say, “Faith comes by having heard the Word of God one time.” It’s by hearing — present tense. Sure, God’s Word can transform us in an instant, but most of the time, we need to hear God’s truth over and over again in order for it to become active in our lives. The more we hear the Word, the more His truth chisels away at the doubt and unbelief that’s been built up over the years. His truth sets us free and causes our faith to grow!
Just as a seed needs water daily to grow, your spirit needs the Word of God daily, too. Your faith needs to be watered by His Word. It can be as simple as selecting a few scriptures to meditate on daily. Write them down and carry them in your purse or wallet. Read them aloud over and over. Let His truth sink down into your heart and move you forward into the freedom and victory He has prepared for you!
