10 Verses to Help You Find Faith Over Fear:
He hears our prayers and is at work - “And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Mark 11:22-24
God promises to guide us - “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
God’s power is unlimited - “For nothing will be impossible with God.” Luke 1:37
We must hold on to faith to fight the battle - “In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;” Ephesians 6:16
Our faith is strengthened through hearing His word - “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” Romans 10:17
We’ve been saved by faith in Christ our Savior - “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9
Though we can’t see everything clearly, God leads us through the battle - “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7
He is with us always - “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
We can have faith in our miracle-working God - “He said to them, “Because of your little faith. 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
We can rest in God’s Sovereignty over every situation - “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalm 46:10
Let’s set aside our fears and move towards Him today in faith. Let’s press in close, and reach out to the One who is all-powerful, compassionate, loving, and kind. He knows already the wounds and troubles we’ve carried. He knows the pain and worries we’ve felt. He knows how much we’ve tried to let go or attempted to fix things in our own power. Let’s choose to believe that our situation or circumstance is never too big for Him to bring healing and freedom.
His truth reminds us again and again: though our own strength and heart may fail, He will never fail us. We can lift up our hands, no matter how tired we might feel, to the throne of grace, our Lord Almighty. He will give us healing and power, and He will bring the victory, even when we feel outnumbered or too tired to keep pressing on. He is able. Nothing is too difficult for Him.
Take a deep breath today and remember, He’s fighting for you. And He won’t let go. Not ever.
