Heb11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen.
Sometimes we lack faith in the things that we ask from God because we doubt him. But, when you think about faith is an action word. Yet when we pray we have a tendency to second guess ourselves and wonder if he will for fill our prayer. I believe that the reason why so many people lack faith is because we expect God to fulfill the request right then but if he did that that would not build our faith. Sometimes we lack faith because we are afraid to take it to him in prayer. We even look at the faith of others and wish we had their faith but he gives out the same amount of faith to everyone. But,it just depends on how much faith we display is to whether or not that will come to pass. We should always have a now kind of faith in order to receive what we ask for. I know in my own walk i have had with my faith in God. But, i am working on that one day at a time. I know that he will bring through this storm I am in but I just have to keep the faith and walk with him daily.
