We don’t grow in faith by looking at ourselves, and wondering how we can “believe more” or “trust more”. We grow in faith by looking to the one we have faith in. We need to see two things that those ancient Israelites didn’t:
- God is willing to save us
- God is mighty to save us
When we see that, our faith in him expands. And of course, when we Christians see that the eternal Son of God became a man and lived and died in our place – we do see God is willing to save. And when we remember that he rose up from the dead in victory, and he now reigns at the Father’s side, we also see he is mighty to save.
