How does our faith grow?

AUDIO MESSAGE — Jesus marvelled at the disciples lack of faith and several times used the phrase, little faith when he referred to his closest followers. But just twice in scripture Jesus was stopped in his tracks by GREAT faith. I used to think that little faith was somewhat of a rebuke, but lately, I see it more as an invitation.

Each one of us has been given a measure of faith, but it’s up to us what we do with it. It’s often it’s through the biggest challenges and obstacles in life that our faith has the opportunity to stretch and grow. It may very well be uncomfortable and seem overwhelming but if we trust God and hold on to his promises, he will use our circumstances as an opportunity to build his character and nature in us.

Through the story of the Canaanite woman in Matthew 15 we see four tests of her faith that she was able to push through and held on for her breakthrough.
