It is natural for a follower of Jesus Christ to want a closer walk with Him, to desire a sturdier faith. Rather than viewing your felt need as a sign of weakness, consider it a positive indicator of spiritual health. If a person is unaware of the need for growth, he cannot cultivate a deeper faith. But if you are yearning for a more stabilizing faith, you are a prime candidate for God’s transforming work.
This book is based on the following premise: the product of a stronger faith requires a process. God does not instantly zap you with more faith. He does work through all sorts of circumstances and relationships with the ultimate goal of giving your faith His stamp of approval. He tests your faith, exposing the extent of your capacity to trust Him. And in the process He strengthens it by revealing more of His trustworthiness.
Each of the chapters in this book focuses on a typical life experience that either tests the quality of your faith or threatens to destroy it. You will discover that the very circumstances that seem to hinder faith can become tools in God’s hands for developing it.
