Virtue: Faith

The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.” Luke 17:5-6

I love how God is so willing to work with what little we can offer.  The following scriptures and quotes describe what faith is and what faith can do…

  • Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  – Hebrews 11:1
  • Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.  – Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • Great strength comes from faith in God.  – Zechariah 12:5
  • As your faith is strengthened you will find that there is no longer the need to have a sense of control, that things will flow as they will, and that you will flow with them, to your great delight and benefit.  – Emmanuel Teney
  • All things are possible to him that believes.  – Mark 9:23

As I draw near to God, learn more about His character, experience His goodness and His faithfulness in my life…

…my faith increases.

“I pray, that faith will find root and grow in my children’s hearts, that by faith they may gain what has been promised to them. And Father, continue to increase my faith, that I may be an example to others of a women who lives by faith.  Great is Thy faithfulness! Amen.”

    What is it that is so virtuous about faith though? Why does God require it of us? Why doesn’t He just appear before us in the flesh everyday so we can have our confidence that way? Why does He want us to grow in faith?

    The Lord is not in the thunder, but in the still small voice. His disciples wanted a King to take over Rome, and they got a carpenter’s son who died on a cross. We must have childlike faith to enter the Kingdom of God. What is seen will perish, what is unseen is eternal. Why am I so drawn to these concepts? The beauty of faith as a virtue has been my meditation recently:
