My Mom often said that you can't expect to have faith for something big like a house if you don't first have faith for a good parking spot or a pair of socks. Just like it takes time for us to build our physical muscles, it also takes time to build our faith. While each of us were given the same measure (or amount) of faith, it is up to us to determine how much that faith will work on our behalf.
Faith is believing what God said and receiving what He has already done. When we believe for a good parking spot and see it come to pass, this reaffirms that God is faithful to what He promised in His Word. This gives us more confidence in Him which in turn builds our faith even more. I challenge you today to begin using your faith for small things so that you are prepared to use it when the "big" things in life arise. Also, encourage other readers by leaving a comment and sharing how you've seen your faith grow through believing for different things.
