Very Rightly has it been said that one does not walk by sight alone but by faith. And this so true. Have you witnessed such incidents in your life when just by evidence or facts or by mere qualitative analysis, things just don’t work? In the film ‘Man of Steel’ when Clark Kent was unable to decide whether he should reveal his identity as superman to the world or not, he went to a priest and the priest told him that sometimes the “Leap of Faith” is the first thing that we must do, and the trust part comes later. Christ has said the same things to us. Because in order to achieve and accomplish the unreal and extraordinary, we must cease to think and believe what is ordinary. Extraordinary things happen when extraordinary faith is put into practice.

These bible verses on faith will help you meditate and reflect on certain truths about life which if ignored can lead to a huge vacuum in life. Go through these verses and think about them as well.
Bible Verses On Faith #1
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love. Ephesians 3:16-17
Read this part again, “Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith”. And yes, it is through faith, and by means of faith can Christ continue to stay in our hearts.

Thus, we need to allow Christ to dwell in us, and this can only happen through faith.

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:12
Some people call this the ” Law of Attraction”. But there is no law that comes from other places apart from God.

Moreover, God is happy when we have such great confidence in Him.
Bible Verses On Faith #3
For we live by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7
Here we go! Have you ever thought about the depth of this verse? A very simple explanation can be is, our God is the creator of everything ‘seen ad un seen’. This explains the fact that there are things that cannot be seen yet exists. Thus, we need to live by faith and not just by sight alone.

Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? John 11:40

Bible Verses On Faith #10
Because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. James 1:3
There are so many instances in life when the faithful’s faith gets tested. It is not that God always tests our faith. Bit, sometimes the situation makes us choose between the normal and the divine.

For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 1 John 5:4

Bible Verses On Faith #15
But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. 1 Timothy 6:11
What is this “all this” that is being spoken about over here? It is everything that belongs to the world: fame, money, luxury, ego, vices, pleasures, etc. Give us those and embrace righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, and gentleness.
Bible Verses On Faith #16
Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters. Romans 14:1
Along with strengthening our own faith, we must also accept those whose faith is weak or maybe weaker than ours. We are all children of the same father. Hence let us not distinguish and discriminate or judge somebody because their faith is weak. Rather, let’s accept one another.
Bible Verses On Faith #17
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:2
And thus, along with faith, we need love. Love completes us.
Bible Verses On Faith #18
“Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road. Mark 10:52

Bible Verses On Faith #19
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35
therefore, if we want to quench our thirst for love and peace in our lives, we must be ready to accept Jesus and believe in him.
Bible Verses On Faith #20
I have chosen the way of faithfulness;
I have set my heart on your laws. Psalm 119:30
Finally, choose the way of faithfulness rather than that of disbelief. I assure you, your life is going to change for the best. If you are faithful to God, you will choose to remain obedient to his laws.
Thus, faith is a beautiful gift that God has given us. There has been so many instances in my life when the world was completely against me, but I stood still and had faith in Jesus. He tells me to ‘Be Still’ and know that he is God and he is in control. Therefore even if the sky is falling down, my faith should never fall.
