Great faith

10 April 2021
‘Faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.’

George Müller is considered to be one of the spiritual giants of the church. Faced time and time again with overwhelming needs, he turned to God in prayer, claimed His promises and experienced amazing miracles. But great faith doesn’t come overnight; it comes over a lifetime of walking with God. Müller said: ‘My faith is the same faith which is found in every believer. It has been increased little by little for the last twenty-six years. Many times when I would have gone insane from worry, I was at peace because my soul believed the truth of God’s promises. God’s Word, together with the whole character of God as He has revealed Himself, settles all questions. His unchangeable love and His infinite wisdom calmed me. I knew, “God is able and willing to deliver me.” It is written, “He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” (Romans 8:32 NKJV).’ So how can we get this kind of faith? The Bible says, ‘Faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ’ (Romans 10:17 ESV). Just as nourishing food strengthens us physically, reading and studying God’s Word every day strengthens us spiritually. The ‘secret’ of successful Christian living isn’t a secret at all – we need to get into God’s Word and get God’s Word into us. We can’t avoid anxiety-producing situations in life, but when our faith is strong, we can face any challenge or problem with confidence, knowing that God’s ‘able and willing’ to walk through it with us.
