To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see. (Hebrew 11:1) Each of us have a measure of faith. So, neve tell anyone that you do not have faith. However, there are people who have little faith and others who have the spirit of faith which is the highest measure of faith. It is impossible to please God without faith. God does not like those who doubt him.
In the book of mathew 14:22, while Jesus was walking on the water, he told Peter to come to him. Peter started walking on the water but then he saw a wave and he became afraid and he started sinking. Jesud held up his hand to him and asked him why he doubted. Just like Peter, you too can loss your faith if you do not guard it jealously. The devil is after your faith because he knows that without faith, you are exposed to all his attacks. You resist all the evil arrows shot by the devil against you with your faith. (Ephesians 6:16)
How then do you keep your faith? Consistency is key because with a consistent measure of faith, you put the devil to nought. Firstly, you keep.your faith by hearing the word of God. Whether it is in church while the pastor is preaching, in your cell meeting or at home, it is imperative to always listen to the word of God. Secondly, by reading the bible and meditating on the word your faith is pumped up. Thirdly, through prayers and being a doer of the word. Your faith is beefed up when you pray for people and they get healed or when they overcome challenges. Lastly, your faith is reenforced when youare a worker in yhe church, because you have to be in chirch regularly and attend all.church activities.
It is very easy to lose your faith just as it is eady to get it. Thr counsequences of losing your faith are disastrous. Faith is like a shield so when you lose it the enemy would easily defeat you. Guard you faith jealously and it would always be with you.
