Reflections- "For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." -Jeremiah 29:11-13

Romans 10:17 says- "Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ." - Romans 10:17
How do you get a stronger faith? Well, since faith comes from hearing the word about Christ, it only makes sense that a stronger faith comes from spending more time reading the Bible. Of course, we not only have to read the Bible. We have to believe it and apply it to our lives. But, having said that, I guarantee you that a Christian whose faith is waning is not spending any time reading their Bible. Those with a little bit of faith only occasionally read their Bible. Without exception, those whose faith is strong, mature and increasing are those believers who read their Bible often and apply it to their lives.
Psalm 1 states that the spiritually strong person is one...."whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night." -Psalm 1:3
So, if you want your faith to increase, increase the amount of time you spend in God's Word. You cannot neglect your spiritual life and expect to have a faith that is strong.
