Are you coasting with your faith today? Were you aggressive at one time and now just along for the ride?

Do you find yourself casually praying and thinking you are believing God, but then as you travel along your daily journey, you haven't been in the Word all day, the problem is surmounting against you, and you find yourself beginning to wonder and doubt?

Will it ever come to pass? Is there even that much money in the world? Will my marriage ever change?

You can see that your faith level is beginning to decline.

When you've been praying for your spouse to get saved and he/she comes home drunk again, Satan will try to get you to think, "Well, God, I just prayed. My life is not getting better, it's getting worse."

Your faith is fluctuating from one moment to the next.

You have to stay in the Word of God on a daily basis to cause your faith level to reach for the impossible. You might as well understand from the beginning that everything we believe for is not possible. If it were possible, it wouldn't take any faith. The Bible says it's impossible to please God without faith (Heb 11:6).

Give Yourself a Faith Test
Examination should take place in our lives every day. "Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves" (2 Cor. 13:5).

So, how is your faith level?

You have to start calling those things that be not as though they were. The things you cannot see are more real than the things you can see. You can't see God; you can't see the Holy Spirit; you can't see Jesus; you can't see the angels, but yet we know that God created all things, and He's more real than what you can see with your physical eye.
"For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

"But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

"We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;

"While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; (or temporary) but the things which are not seen are eternal."
(2 Cor. 4:6-7,13,18)
