Hi Beloved! Happy March! I’m so glad we got to spring forward today. It does throw schedules off a bit, but let there be light! 😁 I had enough of the “getting dark at 5 pm business”. In the weeks leading up to Easter, I want to start a new series called, “What does the Bible Say?” Twice a week, I’m going to choose a topic (this week it will be faith) and then post verses that show us what God says about it. For me, it’s always so faith-building and reassuring to read what the Lord says about recurring themes in our lives, such as faith, fear, hope, forgiveness, peace, and love. I hope you’ll use these posts as a resource when you need confidence or comfort.
FAITH – Even if our faith waivers and we doubt, we can be assured that the Lord is steadfast and faithful to fulfill his promises.
“And Jesus answered them, “Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen. And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.” (Matthew 21:21-22)
“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes has eternal life.” (John 6:47)
“By faith Sarah herself received power to conceive, even when she was past the age, since she considered him faithful who had promised.” (Hebrews 11:11 )
“For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.” (Romans 1:17 )
“And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can! All things are possible for one who believes.”” (Mark 9:23)
“Jesus said to her, “Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?”” (John 11:40 )
“But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)
“For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”” (Matthew 17:20-21)
“For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” (1 John 5:4-5)
“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”” (John 11:25-26)
Jesus Loves You,
