It is important to us to show people from the Scripture that God has not blessed one person with more faith than God has blessed someone else. When people see someone prospering according to the Word, they get the mistaken impression that He must have given that person more faith. The first thing we need to know is this, every believer has been given a measure, the same measure of the God kind of faith.

Bishop Bernard Jordan believes that God gets everyone started off the same way. God does not give one person more faith than God gives another. God gives to every man the measure of faith. And then our faith grows according to what we do with it. It is up to us what we do with the measure of faith God has given us. And the second thing he wants us to know is this: this measure of faith can be increased, but we are the ones who increase our faith, not Him.

He furnishes the means whereby faith can be increased. But we increase our faith by doing two things, feeding it on the Word of God and exercising it or putting it into practice. Now we know that faith comes from Him. And it is the gift of God. But God has given it to every believer. God has given to every believer the measure, the same measure of faith.

“Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the  word of Christ.” (Romans 10:17)
