The faith problem never has been that some of us received smaller quantities and/or weaker qualities of faith. The faith problem is that too many of us believers do not use our God-given faith ALL of the time—in every situation! Therefore, we often do not receive EXACTLY what we prayed for, because we either truly did not trust and have confidence (faith) in God that He would do/provide the specific “thing” (miracle or act of Providence) that we prayed for, or we really NEVER had God’s supernatural, post-resurrection faith—THE measure of faith—at all!
Because we only can look with our natural eyes at our physical face, and see it then only through a mirror, or as it appears in a photo, or drawing, it then is very easy for us to forget what we look like, once we walk away from the mirror, or put away the photo or drawing. The same is true about our spiritual life. The moment we stop reading or listening to the Word of God, we often forget who we are and the kind of lifestyle we are to be demonstrating.
