How do we increase our faith?

We are still in Luke in our bible study and the more I learn the more I want to learn.  Last night one person said, for everything I learn, it makes me want to ask more questions.

I bet that's exactly the kind of response the Lord wants us to have.  He wants us to crave learning more about him, wanting to get to know him on the most personal level.

Anyway, last night we were in Luke 17, where the apostles ask Jesus, "How do we get more faith?" 

The hardest times to hold on to faith is when we are hurting the most.  What should we do to make the hard times a little easier?  What do you do? 

In Jesus' response to the apostles, he tells them we have to exercise our faith, kind of like a muscle.  If we use it, it will grow.  If we seek God's word, spend time with him in prayer, he will never leave us. 

What a promise, he will never leave us.  That's right, he won't and knowing that we can face anything. 

Remember, God is good, all the time.
