The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” (Luke 17:5, NIV)
In Luke 17, the apostles asked the Lord to increase their faith. The apostles were not just people off the street who did not have a relationship with the Lord. They were already followers and believed in who Jesus was. If the apostles – who had already witnessed miracles – needed to take a moment and ask the Lord to increase their faith, we should definitely not be feeling guilty when we have to do the same. I’m sure we have all been there. Life will not always prove fair and we will often need Him to help us have faith.
Prayer: Increase our faith today, Lord! In Jesus name, amen.
