There are so many awesome scriptures on faith, but before I get to sharing them with you, I actually want to share the lyrics to a sweet little song that the children in my church sing. It teaches about how we need to trust in the Lord and live by faith, so we can live with Him again.
‘Faith is knowing the sun will rise, lighting each new day. Faith is knowing the Lord will hear my prayers each time I pray. Faith is like a little seed, if planted it will grow. Faith is a swelling within my heart, when I do right, I know.
Faith is knowing I lived with God before my mortal birth. Faith is knowing I can return when my life ends on earth. Faith is trust in God above, in Christ who showed the way. Faith is strengthened, I feel it grow, whenever I obey.’
~ Beatrice Goff Jackson
I love that song so much! There really is so much value and comfort in simply trusting God, trusting that He’s there and knows better than we do. It’s been such a blessing to seek out and read through all of these scriptures on faith, as I’ve thought of things I’ve never considered before… things I need to work on to improve myself, to grow my faith and receive the promised blessings. Not only is it important to have faith in God, but to also live by faith and work on increasing our faith.
