DELIVERANCE AND HEALING

Activating Your Faith

 

By PBS Ministries

To have Faith is to have a strong believe in God and in His Word. A Christian cannot live a meaningful life in Christ unless Faith is exercised fully. For without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek him. The Word of God tells us that faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. We are saved through faith and the Bible says the just shall live by faith.  Therefore, in all of our trials and circumstances, let us trust God for He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Bible Verses on Faith

Matthew 17:20

  • He replied, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. “
  • Matthew 21:21

    Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done.
  • Matthew 14:31

    Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”
  • Matthew 15:28

    Then Jesus answered, “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour.
  • Matthew 9:2

    Some men brought to him a paralytic, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven.”
  • Hebrews 11:1

    Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
  • 1 Peter 1:21

    Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.
  • 1 Peter 1:7

    These have come so that your faith–of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire–may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
  • Titus 1:2

    a faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time,
  • 2 Corinthians 5:7

    We live by faith, not by sight.
  • 1 Corinthians 15:14-17

    And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.  More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised.  For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either.  And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.
  • 1 Peter 1:5-9

    who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.  In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.  These have come so that your faith–of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire–may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.  Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,  for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
  • 1 John 5:4

    for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
  • 1 Corinthians 16:13

    Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.
  • 1 Timothy 6:11

    But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.
  • 1 Peter 5:9

    Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
  • 1 Thessalonians 1:3

    We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 1 Corinthians 2:5

    so that your faith might not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power.
  • 2 Corinthians 1:24

    Not that we lord it over your faith, but we work with you for your joy, because it is by faith you stand firm.
