Faith seems to multiply in my heart, the more I see Jesus. There is good example of this in John 4:46-54. The story is about a royal official whose son was ill to the point of death. In this story, a man’s faith increases by seeing Jesus in the situation.
The Bible tells us the man was requesting that Jesus would come and heal his son. Jesus gave an interesting response. He said to the man, "unless you see signs you will not believe" (v.48). Then He went on to say in John 4:50, "Go your way; your son lives." Then the passage tells us that the man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he went his way.
Now it was at least a two-day journey to the man’s home. The next day on his way home, his servants came to meet him. They came to tell him that his son was getting better and the fever broke. The man asked the servant what time the fever left his son. The man determined that it was at the exact time that Jesus declared "Go your way; your son lives."
The Bible says in John 4:53, "So the father knew that it was at the same hour in which Jesus said to him, "Your son lives." And he himself believed, and his whole household.”
Since we know the man already believed (V.50); this had to be an increase of belief. In fact, faith increased so much that he and his whole household believed!
If you need a breakthrough right now, look for God’s involvement in the situation. When you see Him, you will discover a new level of faith.
