Romans 10:17 (ESV) So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
Remember, faith comes from one source and that is the Word of God. It does not come from experience. The Israelites saw more miracles than you and I will probably ever see; astonishing, breathtaking miracles. Yet they would go from the last miracle to the next problem, and fall into the same unbelief they had at the start. Miracles don’t give us faith, the Word of God does. Neither does faith come from answers to prayers we’ve had in the past. We are unable to tackle today’s challenges with yesterday’s faith.
Man does not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. Just like we need to eat food everyday, our spirit needs God’s Word every day. The Lord’s Prayer calls it our ‘daily bread’. The fact that you had a chicken dinner recently doesn’t mean that you’ll never eat another. You need to hear faith every day of your life. We need to feed on the promises of God every day!
