Faith by Hearing (Romans 10:17)

Today’s scripture: Romans 10:17

Faith can be tough. Believing in something—or Someone—whom you cannot touch with your hands or see with your eyes is difficult and defies logic.

So, how can you find faith?

We are incredibly blessed that God gave us His very words so we can know Him. We learn of Him through the stories of the history of the nation of Israel, through the words of wisdom in Proverbs, through the songs of praise in Psalms … all the way through the gospels and the epistles.

The Bible illuminates the One who created the heavens and the earth. It points to His incredible love for His children. It describes His super-abundant grace.

It is, indeed, an incredible gift.

Our faith is not blind. It is not wishful thinking. It is not ignorant. No, our faith is built on truth that is made evident through God’s word to us.

In order to really know God, you must study and “hear” His word. As I’ve encouraged over and over, spend time with the Lord today.
