TOPIC: How to Build Your Faith in God
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Romans 10:10-17
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
But ye. beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.

MFM Daily Devotional 8 November 2023 MESSAGE
According to today’s memory verse. we leam that prayer is an effective tool in building our faith in God. Prayer draws believers closer to God. Why is prayer so essential to the Christian? It is because your prayer life is your spiritual life. If you do not pray, you do not have a spiritual life and if you do not have a spiritual life, there is no faith.
Also, in building our faith, what we do as Christians is based on what we believe. James 2:20, “But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?” This means that faith is visible; faith is action. Faith is not dormant. You cannot desire to build your faith in God and you are not doing the things that please Him. It is impossible to please God without faith. You must begin to discipline yourself to fit into God’s standard. People like Jeremiah, David, Samuel, Daniel, etc. met God as teenagers and they kept the faith. Learn to take matters to God and believe Him to perform His wonders in your life.
God uses trials to build our faith in Him. Most times, when we tell God to build our faith, He brings us into some trials, thereby building our faith in Him. He puts us in challenges that only faith in Him can solve. The Bible reveals that many people’s faith was strengthened through trials. You may be wondering why things are not going the way you want, even as a born again. Beloved, nothing is working against you.
There is glory at the end of that dark tunnel. Your faith is gathering power and wings to fly to realms that your mates will begin to look up to you. Romans 10:17 says, “So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” Listening to holy messages and studying God’s word are vital for building your faith. The word of God is quick and powerful; it has no limitations and cannot be stopped. It must fulfil the purpose for which it has gone forth. When you open your spirit man for free access to God’s word, it will fill you with faith.
