Hebrews 11:6 (KJV)
Grace in unconditional but faith is conditional. What you do and do not do has no sway on God’s grace and the things He has given, but what you do and do not do has a sway on your faith and your ability to receive these things. For example, Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God (Rom 10:17). This means you have to hear the word of God in order for faith to come to you.
There are also things that you can do that will cause your faith to diminish and fail.
Since our enemy knows that he cannot stop God from blessing us, he would do everything to hinder us from accessing the blessing by tempting us to do things that will ultimately weaken our faith. It is therefore wise for us to identify and avoid the things that weaken our faith and do the things that boost and optimizes our faith.
We know that faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. So people who apply their hearts to hearing the word of God are will experience multiplied faith.
We have also seen that walking with a defiled conscience causes people to have a shipwreck of their faith (see 1 Tim 1:19). This is because faith and boldness always go together. A defiled conscience takes away a believer’s boldness before God and against his adversary. And what takes away a person’s spiritual boldness has already diminished his faith. Sin is what causes a defiled conscience.
Walking practically in God’s righteousness is the greatest booster of spiritual boldness, and this boldness optimizes our faith. Psalm 28:1: The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.
Go into today asking the Lord to help you avoid things that weaken your faith.
