When we live by faith we are being set apart to God, which. Progressive sanctification is being carried out daily, and future sanctification will take place when we arrive in the presence of God. As we live by faith, God is able to use us and cause us to grow in grace. Sometimes daily growth seems minute or even nonexistent to a casual observer.
We may sometimes become frustrated with the apparent lack of progress, not able to see the forest for the trees. It is good from time to time to look back and see how God has been working in our lives.
As a bricklayer places one brick upon the other, building a large tower, he may feel his progress is insignificant. Yet, the tower will be built one brick at a time. It is the same in our Christian lives. God makes the big changes through a series of little ones. We must learn to trust God for the little things so we can enjoy great growth.
We must trust God daily so we can enjoy yearly gain. Like any other growing experience, living by faith is taking one step at a time.
As a Christian full of faith, God doesn't want you to become stagnant. He wants you to GROW in Him! Get four ways to grow in your faith. In my last post, I talked about 5 reasons you should be developing a strong faith. A strong faith gives you the ability to push through hard times, helps you move.

We must trust God daily so we can enjoy yearly gain. By Kenneth E. Well, physically speaking, if you just ate one cold snack a week, you would grow weak physically!
We must put complete trust in the principles of the Bible and not trust our feelings. Faith is not a blind leap into the dark.
From these verses, we can conclude that faith can either be weak or strong. I am proving to you through Scripture that faith is measurable—that it can grow. We already mentioned that the Bible talks about growing faith 2 Thess. Acts says Stephen was full of faith. James mentions rich faith. James speaks of a perfect faith. First Timothy speaks of unfeigned faith, or faith that is genuine and sincere.
First Timothy speaks of shipwrecked faith and of holding on to faith and to a good conscience. And First John speaks of overcoming faith. I just gave you more than 10 witnesses! And all of these verses will prove to you that faith is measurable. We know that the measure of faith given to every believer can grow. Your faith can be strengthened by feeding it on the Word of God and by exercising it or putting it into practice.
Well, physically speaking, if you just ate one cold snack a week, you would grow weak physically!
But the same is true spiritually. If you want your faith to grow, you have to start where you are. No one climbs a ladder starting on the top rung. No, the person who fed on the Word and exercised his faith had the same measure of faith to begin with as the others had.
But he fed his faith and exercised it, and his faith grew strong! As a result he could believe God for more.
So keep a positive attitude about your own faith. Recognize that you have faith and that you can cause it to grow. Feed your faith and exercise it right where you are in your Christian walk. Then your faith can grow and move mountains! In this 3-CD series, Kenneth W. Hagin explains that faith is similar to athletic ability.
