Building Strong Faith
A few years ago, I was on an airplane and I was looking through the SkyMall magazine. And they had an ad in there for a workout machine that said would give me a good workout in only four minutes a day. I said, "Four minutes?! No way!" There is no shortcut to getting in good physical shape. Likewise, there's no shortcut in getting in good spiritual shape. Listen, 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 says in Jeremiah 29:13, “And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” God is waiting on you. Seek Him and grow strong. Now that’s real hope.
