If there's one requirement that should be found at every Christian's "portfolio," it should be the gift of faith.
God requires us to have a certain amount of faith if we are to be in a relationship with Him. He once said that all we need is faith as big as a mustard seed, and we can easily move mountains. This shows how crucial it is in our Christian life.
Moreover, that little faith is the first thing that we as God's people must learn if we are to follow His teachings. The more we spend time learning about God and the Bible; the more we will grow as Christians. In turn, this results in an increase of our faith.
Of course, there are times when our faith requires us to follow blindly and completely trust that God will see us through. Stepping out of our comfort zone is God's way of strengthening our belief in him; he can use instances like these to assure us that he will be there to guide us even if we think he isn't.
For instance, you come across a burning house and you realize that a child is trapped inside. God might ask you to set aside yourself and go there to save that child. At these moments, you'll realize how our faith levels affect our actions. Our response will measure how much we trust God and that he will lead us away from harm.
Even though we as humans, might think we are incapable of saving another person's life; rest assured that Christ through the Holy Spirit will equip us with the strength we need to overcome any obstacles that come our way.
This gift of faith and trust will be given to us and strengthened if there's a need for it. Sometimes, we just need to let go of ourselves and believe in God's plan.
Humans are not perfect. In scary situations, we are often beset with fear or panic which prevents us from doing anything or even trying. However, when you have faith, you are blessed by the Holy Spirit with certain boldness. This is crucial because it means we are making ourselves readily available for God's purpose. If He calls, we will have the courage to respond accordingly without hesitation.
If you look closely, this is often how miracles are given to us from Heaven. Through our faith, God can use us to become a blessing to others.
Hence, if you find yourself in a moment of fear or feel that you are too weak to do anything; go up to the Lord and ask Him to increase your faith. He gives his gifts freely; all we need to do is ask for it in sincerity.
The gift of faith through the Holy Spirit is essential if we want to grow and have a meaningful relationship with the Lord. It is through the Holy Spirit that he can increase our courage and boldness, allowing us to do things that are seemingly impossible.
