30 Faith Quotes – Inspiration for a Life of Faith

bible light, faith quotes inspiration for life of faith

At some point in everyone’s Christian journey, they will be forced to have faith. From accepting that a God whom you’ve never seen loves you, to trusting God in the unexpected tragedies of life, without faith we would have nothing to cling to. Even more so, faith fuels our prayer lives and our trust in God. By faith, we can trust that the God we serve is all-knowing and has our best interest at heart, even when we don’t understand the plan. We can serve the Lord from what we know to be true about His nature versus what we see in front of us.

“And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” – Hebrews 11:6

There is no greater time than now to trust God in all things. Faith in a God who is bigger than what we can see with our own eyes is needed more than ever! From insurmountable racial tensions, to a global pandemic, and division amongst the church, we must trust that God is watching over all and has not forgotten the cry of His people. It is our faith that will bring us comfort, hope, and joy when it seems all is falling apart around us.

With this in mind, let’s be encouraged with 30 quotes to motivate your faith to grow deeper.
