Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
I didn't look up a definition for faith because one is provided right here in God's word. Once we have the thing we are believing for it is no longer faith.
Mk 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, have faith in God.
He doesn't say faith in a man, or men. He says in God.
Want more faith? Here is the answer.
Lu 17:5 And the apostles said unto the Lord, increase our faith.
Rom 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think: but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
You have received the measure of faith. It contains enough faith for you to believe in Jesus for salvation, and anything else you need. But you must exercise your faith, and your requests must line up with the word of God.
1 Cor 2:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
It doesn't matter what men think, it matters what God can do.
2 Cor 5:7 (for we walk by faith, not by sight)
Haven't received whatever it is you are exercising your faith for? Does it line up with the word of God? Then remember and stand on 2 Cor 5:7.
Getting fiery darts shot at you?
Eph 6:16 Above all taking the shield of faith, wherewith you SHALL be able to quench ALL the fiery darts of the wicked.
It doesn't say you may be able to, or even that you will be able to quench some. It says you WILL quench ALL of them.
Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
It takes faith to believe in God.
Feel like your faith is being tried? I do.
Ja 1:3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
Think nothing is required of you?
Ja 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
Do I think you have to do something other then ask Christ for salvation? No, but I think if you are saved you should have a desire to do something for the Lord even if it is just to tell others when given the opportunity about Him, or to take care of your family as He has called you to do.
What is the end result of our faith?
1 Pet 1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
Heb 10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for He is faithful that promised).
Without wavering means not doubting.
There are so many scriptures about faith, I read them all, over 200. And chose just a few to share here.
I pray that at the end of my life it can be said of me ...
2 Tim 4:7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.
Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live: yet not I but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
The post below has a song about Gal 2:20. Listen to it, you will be blessed.
