Have you ever struggled with your faith? Do you struggle with anxiety, stress, or depression about the future? Read these 19 Bible Verses about Faith and be encouraged today to reach out to God for more faith.

My grandma always says “don’t let tomorrow’s worries take away from today’s blessings.” I didn’t know how true that would be until I grew up and felt the weight of worries that come along with marriage, parenthood, and home ownership. (By the way, how interesting it is that I’ve prayed for those 3 gifts for all of my life!)



Let’s start by defining what faith really is.

Bible Verses About Faith
What is Faith?

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”
Hebrews 11:1 ESV


Faith is necessary to please God

“And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who seek Him.”
Hebrews 11:6 ESV


Faith is the key to prayer

“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 ESV

Bible Verses About Faith
Faith alone doesn’t work. Your faith will naturally play out into good works for your fellow man.

“What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.”
James 2:14-26 ESV


Bible Verses About Faith
God generously gives wisdom to those who ask in faith.

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”
James 1:5-8 ESV


Bible Verses About Faith
We can face persecution and hard times through Christ who gives us strength.

“I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
