The Lord Jesus said, “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold” (Matthew 24:12). Today’s world is becoming more and more dark and evil. People all follow the trends of this world, and long for the enjoyments of the flesh. Believers don’t practice the Lord’s words, or follow the Lord’s commandments; …… Thus, their faith becomes tepid, and they feel negative and weak, and lose the Lord’s presence. During the dangerous days in the last days, how can we gain faith and power from God? Read the following Bible verses about faith and they will help you receive the work of the Holy Spirit, increase your faith in the Lord, and restore the normal relationship with God.
The Significance of Faith
For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end.
1 John 5:4
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.
For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
Jesus said to him, If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.
See you how faith worked with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
Jesus said to her, Said I not to you, that, if you would believe, you should see the glory of God?
The Root Cause of Losing Faith
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
And also I have withheld the rain from you, when there were yet three months to the harvest: and I caused it to rain on one city, and caused it not to rain on another city: one piece was rained on, and the piece whereupon it rained not withered. So two or three cities wandered to one city, to drink water; but they were not satisfied: yet have you not returned to me, said the LORD.
1 John 2:15-16
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
How to Rebuild Faith in God
I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.
But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeks such to worship him.
1 John 5:14
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he hears us:
Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keeps the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you: For every one that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.
