For we walk by faith not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7
So the faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God... Romans 10:17
Today we will continue on developing our walk of faith. Now I will barbecue some sacred cows on how faith comes. A sacred cow is simply a religious belief that is not based on the Word of God, yet most religious people popularly accept it. Here we go:
You don't get faith by praying for it.
You don't get faith by fasting for it.
You don't get faith by going out into nature to get close to God.
You DO get faith by hearing the Word of God.
Faith, we know, grows out of the Word of God. As you continue to hear the Word, your faith grows. As faith grows, you begin to walk by faith more and more. How do we get faith? "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17

The measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you—and more [besides] will be given to you who hear.” Mark 4:24 Amplified Bible (AMP)
