We all have been there - believing God for something, but nothing happens. One thing is for certain, though - faith works. So, in many regards, we need to build our understanding of how faith works to see results. We definitely have to change that statistic of 25% of Christians who practice their faith in America.
By the end of this article you will:
1) Read many scriptures on faith so you know what it is;
So stay tuned to the very end! We're going to really bring it in this post of bible verses about faith. Just like the Billy Graham Crusades harped on faith in God, so too are we going to harp on faith in God, and we're going to take you deep into this thing, by the Holy Ghost.
We're going to be looking at bible verses from the Old Testament as well as the New Testament by the power of The Holy Ghost so you can have the boldness, strength, and courage to persevere and see God's righteous right hand and His steadfast love poured out in your life with the fulfillment of God's promises to you. The faith Noah had was great, but your faith can be greater in Jesus' Name.
It is our prayer that you find at least one bible verse from God's word that you can hold onto in your heart to go from little faith to great faith, or from great faith to greater faith.
May the Lord God Almighty give you peace and strength as you trust in Him to complete the good work that He has begun in you by Christ.
May salvation and eternal life be your portion in Jesus' Name and may you manifest the power of your faith for all to see, just like the apostles in the New Testament did, in Jesus' Mighty Name.

James 1:5-6 If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone.

Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.

More on Trusting God and Having Faith In God- My Personal Story Included!
You’ve got to let go and Let God, and when You do, you'll see the vision that He has given to you for your life come to pass in Jesus' Name.
"You can’t fulfill God’s dream for your life on your own. You have to include the One who had the dream in the first place!”
My name is Quinson Thomas(duh). And I am a Christian. I love the Lord Jesus Christ with everything that is within me, and I have been so for most of my life. But there came a point in my life where I knew that this love had to be poured out and expressed in ways that I could hardly imagine. And in pouring out this love, I’m talking about fulfilling your God-given destiny or your calling in Christ.
My Faith Beginnings
My story begins not with the white picket fence or the mowed lawn, but with the Word of God. I knew that God had called me to do something special -to shine my light for all to see my good works and glorify my Father in heaven. But, the way that God presented it to me was not the way that I wanted.
You see, I’ve always wanted to be a doctor. I can clearly remember kneeling down at a table that held my older brother’s school books and saying that I wanted to be a doctor. And that’s what I pursued. I had great grades all through school; even up to the first two years of Community College.
Then, the time came to send out applications to schools abroad. I had been focusing on applying to schools in the UK, and so I used the UCAS application system.
But, along the way something really unexpected happened! I missed the application deadlines. I mean, I had been there searching the pages, and I believed that I had the right date, but as I later discovered, that wasn’t true! I was annoyed, disturbed and frustrated. But while perplexed, I was not without hope. I had the LORD- He is my Hope.
Faith in God will Stretch You
Around this time the Lord began speaking to me even more clearly about what He had called me to do in Christ. But, I didn’t want to listen. Nosiree! The Lord was calling me to full-time ministry. I thought, “I can’t be a pastor.”
"Woah, Lord. Too much responsibility."
Little did I know at the time... the Lord wasn’t calling me to just be a pastor. He had much more than that for me. Three times, the Lord called to me through the words of men of God on TBN, but I didn’t listen. I knew that they were speaking to me, because every time I turned on the television, the Holy Spirit used them to call out to me. But, I was stubborn.
And so the Story Continues...
So, I applied to a very prestigious school in the USA and was accepted. I thought, maybe it wasn’t God that I was hearing. But I was wrong. Every turn since then has been hard and trying. It was as if my steps were not being prospered by the Lord.
My good grades went from good to mediocre to abysmal. And I sought the Lord earnestly day and night. And in the night-watches, the Lord would remind me that this was not His best for my life. I had to go back home to the place that He had called me.
And so after many tears and frustration and questions, I returned home to fulfill the ministry and calling that He had upon my life. And here I am today, talking to you.
What does my story have to do with anything? I’ll tell you! There is a new breed of destiny chasers in town. These are people who don’t take mediocrity for an answer. These are those who want their light to shine to bring glory to God our Father through our Lord Jesus Christ! These are people have been pushed down, and upset, and frustrated, but are still pressing on because they know that the Lord had called them to do something special.
As Bible Verses Show, The Lord Will Separate You Unto Himself
The Lord had to take me out of the world system and set me apart because there is a company of mighty warriors that will transform this world in ways that we can hardly imagine.
The scope and the impact of these mighty warriors, these destiny chasers was too great for the Lord to leave me to do what I wanted.
The Lord had to bring me to the place of realizing that there was much at stake. And glory to God, I’m glad that He did. And this book that has taken about 2 years of experience and the Lord’s impartation and training to develop is finally here. This book is what I call a breakthrough book.
But before I introduce the book, let me speak to you. And if you’ve read this far, I believe you’re a member of this new breed of Destiny chasers in the Body of Christ.
You are not crazy- The Bible Will Testify of Your Faith!
I can’t tell you how many times I have been told that I’ve lost a screw or that what God has promised me is impossible or that I should continue to do things the way that everyone else has been doing things.
And the most frustrating part of it all is that these words of disappointment and disapproval have been coming from those closest to me- my immediate family and friends. But, can I tell you the truth? Jesus Christ is Lord! And everything that God has promised you shall come to pass as you abide in Him.
I want to comfort you of the truth that the Lord revealed to me in His Word,
34"Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn 'a man against his father,a daughter against her mother,a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law -36a man's enemies will be the members of his own household.'[e]37"Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; 38and anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. (Matthew10: 34-39)
You see if you’re ever going to go up higher, you’ve got to be able to trust in the Lord completely, as the Bible clearly shows.
You have to let go and let God.
Even your family and friends at times won’t understand what the Lord has for you because they’ve only seen the you that you’ve been in the past. They can’t accept the you that God says that you will be. And so when the Lord Jesus says that He came to send a sword He’s talking there about the Word of God that sets you apart from those around you so that you can soar to the heights that God intends for you. In other words, to do what God created you in Christ Jesus to do, you must be fully committed to the cause of Christ, and in so doing, those around you, who may later on see your light, will know that it is God who promoted you.
So to second this... you’re not crazy!
God’s word is Truth, and it shall come to pass! I don’t know exactly what God has called you to do, but I do know that it will bring Him lots and lots of glory! And I do know that along the way, you’ve probably become frustrated concerning the length of time concerning it. I must comfort you and tell you that it will not all come at once, but little by little, and step by step. There’s a transformative work that God has to bring you through to be able to reach that place of promise.
But, be encouraged in this: as you let go and let God you will begin to see small victories that will prepare you and keep you motivated as you run the race onto the bigger and greater things in the Lord. This is the scripture that the Lord has been highlighting to me in the course of writing this book...
No one probably expected me at the age of 19 to host my own ministry broadcast on the most listened to radio station in the British Virgin Islands. I could barely make ends meet. Sure, I paid off the first 3 or so broadcasts on time, but without a job, it would seem impossible to do so, but I did so through Christ who strengthened me.
Then when I got a job, even though the hassles weren’t over, I was able to use the Wisdom and the Faith that the Lord had equipped me with to make greater strides in Him.
Faith Will Cause You To Do The Unexpected
No one expected me to have an online ministry, but it was what God had called me to, and He equips His children as they abide in Him!
So, here’s what I’m saying to you...
Let go and let God be in control of your life. He has great plans for you.
(Jeremiah 29:11) I know the plans that I have for you, says the Lord; plans for your good and not for your evil; to give you a future with an expected end.
I didn’t get here overnight. That’s not the way that God works. He does things step upon step; and precept upon precept so that when you get to the place He promised you, you’ll be able to stand in the full weight and authority of that position and say,
“Look what my God has done!”
The ‘secret’ (so to speak) is to trust in God and obey!
