My hope is that these simple truths for building your faith will encourage you to believe that you are destined for greatness!
God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sun with rain but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. If brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.
~Martin Luther King Jr.~
Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it isn't there. You can't see the future, yet you know it will come; you can't see the air, yet you continue to breathe.
I am not moved by what I see. I am not moved by what I feel. I am moved only by what I believe.
Faith comes alive when the Word read from the page becomes the Word heard in your heart.
Your belief determines your action and your action determines your results, but first you have to believe.
~Mark Victor Hansen~
You get faith by studying the Word. Study the word until something in you “knows that you know” and that you do not just hope that you know.
~Carrie Judd Montgomery~
How can one come to possess faith? Now listen here is the answer to that: First the blade, then the ear, then the full corn of ear. Faith must grow by soil, moisture and exercise.
Faith talks the language of God. Doubt talks the language of man.
The world says, “Seeing is believing.” Faith says, “Believing is seeing.”
~Pastor Tim Hall~
Faith is the daring of the soul to go farther then it can see.
~William Newton Clarke~
Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you not understand at the time.
Faith is a passionate intuition.
Seek not to understand that you may believe, but believe that you may understand.
Frequently remind yourself that God is with you, that He will never fail you, that you can count upon him. Say these words, “God is with me, helping me.”
~Norman Vincent Peale~
Depression is the emotional result of hopelessness. Joy is the emotional result of hope. Peace is the emotional result of faith.
Faith is a reasoning trust, a trust which reckons thoughtfully and confidently upon the trustworthiness of God.
~John R. Stott~
Faith is the spark that ignites the impossible and causes it to become possible. When a person's faith is activated, it sets in motion supernatural power that enables that person to do what he normally would never be able to do.
Worry does not empty tomorrow of it's sorrow; it empties today of its strength.
When walking through the “valleys of shadows,” remember, a shadow is cast by a Light.
Believe you receive in the faith realm, and you shall have it in the natural realm.
Napoleon Hill wrote in Think and Grow Rich, “All thought which have been emotionalized (given feeling) and mixed with faith, begin immediately to translate themselves into their physical equivalent or counterpart. Begin to conduct yourself like the person who is capable of manifesting the goals and aspirations you desire to achieve. Start this at once. You must believe that you can achieve what you have conceived in your mind before you can manifest it. Your actions are a direct reflection of what you believe.
