Satan is always finding new ways to tear down your faith. However, you can fight back by increasing your faith! Sometimes, we have a misconception about our faith. We believe that we have to be on a secluded mountain to hear from God. But that is not the case. The Bible says that the Kingdom of God is within us (Luke 17.21). So, at anytime you can be a the throne of God. Increasing your faith is easy!
Here are 7 simple habit that I do every day in order to increase my faith. They may seem simple, but they will place you on a level of victory that you’ve never had before.
1) Wake Up to the Word
Every morning, I know Satan will start his attacks on my mind (read more about Satan’s Schemes). Therefore, I make sure that I’m ready! I grab my phone an instantly fill my room with faith boosting insights from God’s Word. I play a podcast of a preacher that I enjoy: Joyce Meyer, TD Jakes and Joseph Prince are three of my favorites. My faith is increased and the day just started!
2) Listen to Christian Music in the Car to Expand Your Faith
Listening to Christian music may seem difficult at first. You may not know any of the songs or artist. But it won’t take long before you’ll be singing to the encouraging lyrics. Try to find a Christian station that mixes music with inspiration DJs. You’ll be amazed at how God will boost your faith through the music (read more about Spiritual Hydration)!
3) Have Your Bathroom Quiet Times
This does sound weird talking to God in the bathroom. Let’s be honest. These short minutes may be the only time you’re alone all day. Nevertheless, people use the restroom 6-8 times a day, and those minutes will add! Pray for others. Pray for your situation. Tell God that you love Him! This can be your constant interaction with God throughout the day to boost your faith! (Read more about Quiet Times).
4) Keep a One-year Devotional Handy
Powerful Christian leaders read and write devotionals. These are short, powerful insights that will boost your faith. You can carry a devotional in your purse, backpack or briefcase. Gleaning from other people will remind you that you’re not alone. Additionally, their wisdom may be exactly what you need for that day.

5) Go to the Bible App before Social Media
Before you touch the Facebook or Instagram app on your phone, go to your Bible App. YouVersion has the entire Bible and tons of free devotionals at your fingertips. Plus, it’s all free with no advertisements. Before you get lost in social media, read a few verses or start a new devotional. Reading from the Bible will definitely increase your faith!
6) Pray at the Moment
God will bring people on your path every day. And these people may share their hurts and pains with you. Instead of saying you’ll pray for them, just pray for them right there. It may be uncomfortable at first, but just ask, “Can I pray for you now?” Grab their hand, bow your head and pray for their situation in Jesus’ name. Just make the prayer simple! Your faith will increase by praying with them.
7) Do Something Sweet and Secret
Listen to the Holy Spirit. He wants to use you to bless others. Try to find at least one person a day that you can bless in secret. Helping others will not only boost your faith, but it will make you feel great! Donate clothes. Offer encouraging words to a stranger. Babysit a friends’ kids (Read more about Motherhood). Send a gift to a ministry leader. Do something tangible for someone each day.
