"God has dealt to each the measure of faith" (Rom. 12:3 NKJV).

Everyone who has made Jesus their Lord has been given a measure of faith—the same measure—but not everyone takes the time to develop it into a powerful force.

Your faith grows stronger when you hear God's promises. That's because whatever God promises you in the Bible, you can be sure it will happen. He is "alert and active, watching over [His] word to perform it" (Jer. 1:12 AMP).

So, if you want some faith, start finding out what God has said. Open your Bible and discover what He has promised you.

Then keep that Word in front of you. Put it in your locker. Put it in your organizer. Speak it aloud. Proverbs 4:20-22 puts it this way: "My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart, for they are life to those who find them and health to a man's whole body."

The force of faith comes when you pay attention to the Word of God!

It comes when you do what God told Joshua to do—let the Word of God "not depart out of your mouth, but...meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success" (Josh. 1:8 AMP).

So do what it takes to develop your faith into a powerful force. Then, when trouble comes and you need help, you'll be ready. You can speak that promise, and watch your faith go to work.

Or, better yet, learn to use your faith ahead of time and all the time, and you can avoid most of those troubles in the first place!
