Scriptures of Encouragement ~ By Faith

"By faith, we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

"By faith, Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death; he could not be found, because God had taken him away. For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek him.

"By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family.

"By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.

"By faith, the people passed through the Red Sea as on dry land, but when the Egyptians tried to do so, they were drowned.

"By faith, the walls of Jericho fell, after the people had marched around them for seven days." ~ Hebrews 11:3,5-8,29,30

By faith, my friend climbed her way out of a deep depression.

By faith, a sweet couple conceived, not one, but two little darlings when the doctor said there was no way.

By faith, a young woman was able to let her daddy die in peace, knowing that she would see him again one day.

By faith, out of nowhere, a totally perfect job came to a man in a totally imperfect job market.

By faith, my son dared to love again.

By faith you, dear reader, reached out your fingertips in the darkness, groping for the hand of your Deliverer.

By faith...

"But dear friends, use your most holy faith to build yourselves up, praying in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in God's love as you wait for the Lord Jesus Christ with His mercy to give you life forever." ~ Jude 20,21, The Inspirational Study Bible

Father, Although the walk of faith is difficult at times, its footing is always sure. Your Word fails not. Your promises are true. And Your power? Your power is astonishing. Help us dare to believe that You are who You say You are. Give us courage to walk this walk of faith, enjoying each blessing, each kiss of favor, each miracle - big and small. We love You, Lord.
If you received Morning Glory via email, please visit the Morning Glory page to worship the Lord with The David Crowder Band as they sing, "Never Let Go". I might do the happy dance if you leave a comment while you're there ;-)

    1. Susan, I have only recently discovered The David Crowder Band and I love them. Their lyrics are so simple yet profound in their meaning. Thank you so much for stopping by today. I appreciate it.

  3. Oh Nan, I love this post! We can list so many testimonies of how we were able to do something by faith. "By faith, we were able to make it to Boot Camp." "By faith, we're able to be on this writing journey and believe that our work is touching lives." "By faith, we're able to trust again after being hurt." I could go on and on. Thank you so much for the great word of encouragement! Love you sweet friend and never ending blooming rose.

    1. Jamie, your comment just blessed me so much. It really is amazing when we take time to think about it. "The just shall live by faith." Wow. Every moment of our day is orchestrated by our faith if we would just open our eyes to see. Love you Jamie girl.

  7. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm going to start my
    own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm
    looking for something unique. P.
    S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
