Can I Get Faith ?

It Is Written, Romans 10:17,  so then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
Ephesians 2:8, for by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves;  it is the gift of God.
When you are a believer, you must always remember that you became a believer by the grace of God. With that came a measure of faith.
In this case, faith refers to the ability to receive and exercise the gifts God apportions to us.  Although each man receives the seed of faith, God does not have the same tasks for everyone.
As we all know, God is in charge of everything.  He decides who will do what, and how they do it. As you can imagine, some tasks require more faith than others.
Faith is a process of listening to God, and acting on what He says.  A for instance.  If God wants you to be a preacher, He will guide you in the way to become one.  When you become one, He will anoint you, and lead you in doing His work.  Your faith would match the task.
Many people have the idea that the faith they have can be increased by their own efforts.  God speaks to everyone.  Those that listen to His voice, He uses for His work, and gives them the required faith.
God speaks to the heart, and through His Word.  It is up to us to listen and obey.  If we don't listen or obey, His voice gets quieter, until we can't hear Him at all.  When Jesus said that we must take up our cross and follow Him, He meant more than just observing,  He meant doing without complaining.
When you work for God, in whatever capacity, He will provide everything you need in order to do it. Once we realize that our faith is in proportion to how much we listen and obey God, we will find peace.  Have a blessed day. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
