Why Do We Lose Faith?
You know it’s so easy to lose faith when we don’t see the thing that we’ve prayed for and waiting for come to fruition. It’s also easy to lose faith when things start going wrong in our lives, right. Another place we easily lose faith is when someone we love and trust doesn’t support us.
Now that we’ve acknowledged some ways that we lose faith. What do we do to regain our faith? The first way should definitely be through prayer and submission to God. Submitting to God causes us to believe in something far greater than ourselves. We have to believe that God exist in order to submit to Him. Once we submit to Him, having His spirit live in our heart grows our faith.
The second way we can grow our faith is through reading the bible. Yes, read your bibles! This should be a daily habit anyway. Studying God’s word and allowing those words to live in our hearts causes our faith to grow. In order for something to grow, it must be fed what it needs most. Our faith, in this same way, needs to be fed daily so that it will continue to grow.
When we think of losing faith, this is probably the first place it happens. Either we just stop believing in ourselves and our abilities, or we allow others’ lack of belief in us to cause us to stop believing. Trust me, I know it’s very difficult to have someone who you love and respect not support and believe in you. It’s a very painful and lonely place to be. This is where “encouraging yourself” comes into play. The bible says “David was greatly distressed …” The people wanted to stone him because of the they were grieved, but David “encouraged himself in the Lord his God.” 1 Samuel 30:6 KJV We can always find encouragement in the Lord when no one around us seems to.
Anyway, I said all of that to say this … DON’T STOP BELIEVIN’! Don’t stop believing in God. Don’t stop believing in yourself. Don’t stop believing. Faith keeps us going when the way seems impossible. Faith keeps us strong when we should be weak. Faith will get us to the finish line even when we’ve stumbled and fallen down. Faith will cause us to get back up again. Faith is what carries us through. All it takes is faith … small as a mustard seed! Matthew 17:20 NIV
