10 Steps to a Spiritual Breakthrough
5. FAITH Faith is one of the most essential ingredients of healthy daily Christianity. Hebrews 11:6 says, "He who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." Jesus also taught us to pray in faith believing and we will receive what we ask for (Mark 11:24), and that even the smallest amount of faith will do powerful things. (Matthew 17:20)
It's not enough to just pray about something. We need to pray with faith and confidence in our gracious and good Father who rewards us when we diligently seek Him. We should pray with faith, not just that God will give us what we want, but that He is a good Father (See Matthew 7:7-11), and He will give us what we need the most. God always gives us what we would pray for, if we knew everything He knows.
