If you’ve ever observed a mustard seed, you’re aware of its minuscule size. Could you imagine that our faith in Christ and His capabilities only need to be as small as that seed? Immense faith is commendable, but everyone has to begin somewhere. Achieving significant outcomes takes time, and just like a mustard seed that begins as a small, seemingly purposeless entity, it can eventually grow into something superb when the right conditions are met.

Through faith, we possess a trust that allows us to navigate our daily lives, confident that whatever challenges we face, God has committed to addressing them. Living without faith leads us to fixate on matters that God has already ordained to unfold for our benefit. In the Bible, you’ll encounter the term “faith” quite frequently, often in situations where individuals had to rely on God and uphold His promises. Centuries later and humans find themselves having to dig deep to identify that same crazy faith that was spoken about in the good book.

Here are 5 scriptures about having strong faith:

🙏  1 Corinthians 2:5 tells us that our faith should not be placed in the wisdom of humankind, but we should place our faith in the powerful hands of God because he can exceedingly, abundantly above all we could ask or think.

so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.


🙏  Matthew 17:20 goes back to the topic of the mustard seed and the fact that all you need is the smallest bit of faith to get through whatever obstacles may come your way. Amazing things await you, but you first must have faith.

He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”


🙏  2 Corinthians 5:7 reminds us to not live a life based off of what we see taking place around us, but rather to allow God to order our steps through faith and let Him guide us.

For we live by faith, not by sight.


🙏  1 Corinthians 13:13 focuses on the triad of faith, hope, and love, identifying that while all three virtues hold a purpose and are important in our walk with God – love trumps them all by being the greatest because at the end of the day, we are called to have a Christ like love.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.


🙏  Luke 1:37 helps us understand that faith doesn’t mean things will immediately fall into your lap at the drop of a hat, but faith does allow things to come to pass when God believes we are ready to receive what we have asked for in prayer.

For no word from God will ever fail.
