1 PETER 2:2 AMP: like newborn babies [you should] long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may be nurtured and grow in respect to salvation [its ultimate fulfillment],
My dear friend, it is obvious from our text today that we can only grow in the faith through the word and nothing else. Miracle does not produce faith, prophecy does not produce faith. What produce faith is the hearing of the word which is Christ. The Bible says “So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ.” Romans 10:17 NLT.
Many are very keen to seek out places where they will recieve prophecy or even see miracles. When they are tired of a particular place, they move to the next. Many are in such places for years without any growth in the faith. A little wind of challenge and they are knocked out.
I encourage you to seek for the word, that’s the only way to grow your faith. This will enable you to be firm in the faith when challenges of life come out against you. You are blessed.
Declare to yourself loud: I will dwell on your word all the days of my life. Hallelujah.
Lord Jesus, you are the author and finisher of our faith, continue to enlighten my understanding in your word. In Jesus Name. Amen.
