Day-4 Devotional: Developing Faith and Trust

Developing Faith & Trust

As we seek first God’s Kingdom, we continue to develop our faith and trust in Him. Faith is the standard in our relationship with Jesus! We all have put our hope or trust in something, but where we put our faith matters most. In Luke 2:52, the Bible says that Jesus grew in wisdom and stature. As Jesus progressed and grew during His time on earth, it is important that we continually grow and develop as well! There is always room to grow in our faith and trust in the Lord. When we put our faith in Jesus, we partner with God in believing what we cannot see. The Bible defines faith in Hebrews 11:1 as “being sure of what we cannot see.” When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we do so on faith! We trust in the Word of God and are filled with the Holy Spirit. Faith becomes the standard of knowing God and seeing Him transform our hearts and lives. We not only have faith in our salvation but also trust in knowing that God is all-powerful and above all things in our lives. As we grow in our faith and trust, we take a moment to remember all that God has done to get us here. Every day is a fresh opportunity to experience God’s faithfulness and trust Him more. We pray for increased faith and trust as we seek God first.

Application/ Reflection:

How has God been faithful in your life?
In what areas of your life do you need God to increase your faith?
What are practical ways you can develop your faith and trust in God?

Lord, I thank you for your Son, Jesus. Thank you that, through faith, I am saved. I repent for times when I have confined my understanding of your power or ability to transform my life. I pray that you remind me of your faithfulness and goodness in all things. I pray that you expand my comprehension of your power. Thank you for being all-knowing and sovereign and reigning above everything in my life. I pray that as I encounter others today, I can encourage and uplift them through my faith in you. I love you. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
