    To increase your faith in God, study your Bible. Know who is talking, who they are talking to and in what period of time they were talking in. Change requires a mental change. God has provided the in His written word the things we need to do and think about. Galatians 5: 22 through 26. Strive for the faith once delivered. Jude 3.
