God is the faith God and He created you in His own image, so you can demonstrate faith and develop it in your own life.
2 Thess 1:3 We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith grows exceedingly,
Heb 11:1-3 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.
3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
Substance means 'physical evidence from which something is made.' It’s the material, the essence, and the basic stuff.
Evidence means 'an outward sign.' If you have to go speak in Court, it will require proof or evidence!
Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Faith is what you use to please God and obtain the promises.
Faith says God is God.
Faith says God is a rewarder because His Word says so!
Faith is a world overcomer!
1 John 5:4 Whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world, and this is the victory that overcometh the world even our faith!
If you are born again you are born again as a world overcomer...
There is nothing more important to God than your faith in His Word.
Therefore it is important to increase your faith level, & to do so:
YOU MUST THINK FAITH.
Phil 2:5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.
As you think so you are.
Proverbs 23:7 As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.
YOU MUST HEAR FAITH.
Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by The Word of God.
If faith comes by hearing God’s Word, (that means faith grows as you hear the preached Word), it also means it can go by not hearing the Word preached.
YOU MUST SEE FAITH.
You see faith by the results it brings.
Heb 12:1-2 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.
2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
YOU MUST TALK FAITH.
Psalm 105:1-2 O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.
2 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.
So you must THINK, HEAR, SEE and TALK FAITH if you are to increase your faith and please God.
