Coming from a no-faith place, I remember telling God I didn’t really understand it much less have any.
He quietly led my thinking to the simple everyday tasks or actions we take where faith is automatic or taken for granted like,
Sitting on a chair
Driving a car
Eating or drinking food or liquids believed to be healthy
Lying down on a bed
Faith is taking these natural acts and transferring it to God. In other words trusting God whoever made the chair we are sitting in isn’t going to collapse with us in it.
Certain areas of faith are harder to put to the test than others. It shouldn’t be but it is.
Why is it easier to believe God for that perfect job than healing?
Why do we trust him more for protection than providing our every need financially?
There is no difference. He promises all we need no matter what it is which covers everything from a new car battery to food on the table.
The more a person has tends to lead to self-sufficiency which removes the need for God. One thing for sure is if you find yourself in that league, be prepared. God keeps him promises; even the one that says, “God giveth and God taketh a way.”
Then there were those who had faith grow as the word was written about them or by them such as Paul, John and the other disciples. Mary Magdalene and the two sisters Mary and Martha who observed the raising of their brother from the dead. Watching a scene like that would make anyone’s faith explode!
The times we are living in are in need of Abraham’s, Moses’, David’s and Esther’s.
