These 64 Bible Verses On Faith Will Carry You Through Hard Times

Faith comes in handy when hard times come calling.

And bible verses about faith in hard times could be the secret you need to transform that hard time into victory.

But it draws us into that age-old debate about what faith is and exactly how you know you’re activating it.

 

What Is Faith?

And without faith, it’s impossible to please God. So the Bible says.

Jim Haeffele describes faith as complete trust in God.

Faith is trust, assurance and confidence in God. Living faith is shown by service and obedience to God. God will increase our faith if we fervently ask and draw close to Him

Though we try to complicate it most times, probably the simplest example of faith in the Bible draws from the story of the two blind men who came to Jesus for healing.

This is how Jesus responded…

“Do you believe that I am able to do this?” Their reply was, “Yes, Lord.” “Then He touched their eyes saying, ‘According to your faith let it be to you.’ And their eyes were opened.”

Yet, this subject of faith is one of the hardest things to fathom as a Christian.

So, Why is It Still So Hard To Understand Faith?

What exactly is it, and how do you know if you have faith?

If you pray and don’t get an answer, is it because you didn’t have ‘faith?’

How do you know if your faith is enough to guarantee your miracle?

It’s puzzling, right?

We’re not here to try and answer that question.

Lots of scholars have attempted that, and we’ll leave it to them.

However, probably the easiest way to really figure if you are walking in faith regarding anything is that deep-down, settled and confident, brimming expectation in the reality of the thing you are believing God for.

Thankfully, there are tons of verses in the Bible that can help shore up our faith and keep us going strong until the finish line.

Let’s share them with you.

As you reflect on them, the best thing to know is that as you meditate and repeat them in prayer, they become real and alive, taking root in your spirit and heart, and by themselves, help generate the ‘faith’ you need to get what you need from God.
