Building Strong Faith
A few years ago, I was on an airplane looking through the Sky Mall magazine. They had an ad in there for a workout machine that would give me a great workout in just 4 minutes a day. 4 minutes?! No way! There is no shortcut to getting in good physical shape. Likewise, there is no shortcut in getting in good spiritual shape. You can't go from a spiritual weakling to a spiritual giant in one Bible study. Growth takes consistent time with the Lord. And the good news is this: if you will put forth the effort to seek the Lord, you will find Him. God promises, “And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13). God is waiting on you. Seek Him and grow strong. Now that’s real hope.
