Increase Our Faith

“And the apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith.”” -‭‭Luke‬ ‭17:5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Wow! This is a powerful verse.  The apostles who had seen countless miracles after being taught on forgiving all who sin against them asked Jesus to increase their faith. 

If the Apostles needed to ask this, I need to ask this!

Faith comes from God and is a gift.  It’s not something I can “muster up” (believe me I’ve tried). No, faith comes from God.

God I ask that you raise up a faith-filled, mountain moving generation. Increase our faith Lord! Increase our faith. 

Mercy Triumphs 

“Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully.” ‭‭-Psalms‬ ‭24:3-4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Do you ever read these kinds of verses and get reminded of your past thinking, “That’s not me, my hands aren’t clean.” The Lord reminded me that’s a lie from Satan the accuser. Jesus has made us clean and given us a pure heart! Not to mention this verse was written by David who committed adultery and murder but still became known as the man after God’s heart. 

“You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.”‭‭ -John‬ ‭15:3‬ ‭NKJV‬

God’s love, mercy and grace triumphs over judgement through Christ!
