Faith Comes by Hearing God's Word

Romans 10:17
Now faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
When we hear the words of God they bring hope to our hearts because of God's promise to us. This hope then turns into faith. That is why we should read the Bible, it will allow the Holy Spirit to speak to our heart and build faith.

The word of God is alive Heb 4:12

Psalm 12:6
"The words of the LORD are pure words;
As silver tried in a furnace on the earth, refined seven times."

Read, study, meditate , memorize, pray the word of God. Read it along with breakfast, lunch and supper. Read it at bed time. Read it for family devotions. Study what the Spirit brings to your mind. Study in more detail what your pastor teaches on Sunday morning. Let the Bible teach itself by checking the cross references of passages that interest you or you have questions about.
