From Faith To Faith and Glory To Glory

I have always heard that phrase, and it is an excellent one, too. I can not, however, find it in the Bible. That does not mean that it is not an excellent description of how we are to live and grow as Christians. Let me explain what I mean.

If one can believe God to provide ten dollars for gas today, and He does, then tomorrow one will be able to believe that He will provide two hundred dollars for the power bill. It would not be long, at that rate, to be believing Him to provide ten thousand dollars to start that new business with! They have gone from one level of faith to a higher level, seeing His glory in the ten dollars, but more in the two hundred. As we see more and more glory, we get to know and trust Him even more.

From faith to more faith, and glory to more glory. Today, stopping a headache, tomorrow the flu. Not far down the road, healing cancer.

What can you believe Him for?

For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. (Romans 1:17)  Why is this so important?  Hebrew

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (Hebrews 11:6)
