Is there a blueprint for faith. If so, what is it? I’m reading a small book by Kenneth W. Hagin called, “Blueprint for Builing Strong Faith.” Its more or less a pamphlet that you can get for $2, or .99 on a kindle.
What are You Surrounded by?
Is what you are doing, what you are listening to, or watching, is it hurting or helping you create an environment of faith? You may think you don’t have faith, but indeed according to Romans 12:3 God gave you faith. Check this out:
For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.
So we are all given faith. What we do with it is up to each every individual person. Are you sitting in a church that does nothing for you? I did for years. Then I went to another church and my eyes were opened. I could feel God in this place.
Faith is an organic thing. It needs fed. It needs nurtured.
Right now, my attitude tends to lean toward the negative. Give me 2 seconds and I’ll find something to complain about. My wife and I call each other on our way home from our jobs. All we do is explain all the things that went wrong.
Can you build faith? Let’s look at the disciples. Were these great men of faith? After all they saw his miracles with a front row seat. Yes when he walked on water they freaked out and asked, “What kind of dude walks on water?” Cluesless.
In Acts 4:13 it points out how the Pharisees saw them as “unlearned and ignorant men.” Yet they were doing the same things Jesus did. Why? Because they had been with Jesus. What an environment!
Surround yourself with the word of God, and those things that produce faith.
