Here are Bible verses to (re) discover about faith when you need God to come forward.
Tturn to Romans 12 verse 3 to find that God has given every man a measure of faith.
“By the grace given to me, I say to each of you not to think too highly of yourself, but to put on modest feelings, according to the measure of faith that God has bestowed on each one. "
Take inspiration from Abraham's faith in Romans 4 from verse 1 to verse 13.
“What then shall we say that Abraham our father obtained according to the flesh? If Abraham was justified by works, he has reason to boast, but not before God For what does the Scripture say? Abraham believed God, and it was imputed to him for righteousness For what does the Scripture say? Abraham believed God, and it was imputed to him for righteousness. Now, to him who does a work, his wages are imputed, not as a grace, but as a thing due, and to him who does not do a work, but who believes in him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is in him. imputed to justice. Likewise David expresses the happiness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness without works. Blessed are those whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered! Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute his sin! Is this happiness only for the circumcised, or is it also for the uncircumcised? For we say that faith was imputed to Abraham for righteousness, how then was it imputed to him? Was it after, or before his circumcision? He was not yet circumcised, he was uncircumcised. And he received the sign of circumcision, as a seal of the righteousness which he had obtained by faith when he was uncircumcised, in order to be the father of all the uncircumcised who believe, that righteousness also might be imputed to them and the father of the circumcised, who are not only circumcised, but also who walk in the footsteps of the faith of our father Abraham when he was uncircumcised. For it was not by law that the inheritance of the world was promised to Abraham or to his seed, it was by the righteousness of faith. "
There are many scriptures in the Bible that deal with faith. When you need a miracle, you can also ask God to increase your faith. Do not hesitate to reread Hebrews 11 from verse 1 to verse 40 and Hebrews 12 verses 1 and 2.
"So we too, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, cast off every burden, and the sin which so easily envelops us, and run with perseverance in the career open to us, looking on Jesus, the head and the consumer of the faith, who, in view of the joy which was reserved for him, suffered the cross, despised ignominy, and sat at the right hand of the throne of God. "
The Bible speaks of prayer and fasting (Matthew 17:21).
“But this kind of demon only comes out through prayer and fasting. "
A one-day fast might be fine. I have found that sometimes we need a three day fast. If a one-day fast is easy for you, a three-day fast can really shake things up. Remember to pray during this time and read the scriptures.
Also remember that you can come to God on your own to obtain grace and mercy in times of need (Hebrews 4:16).
“Let us therefore approach with confidence the throne of grace, in order to obtain mercy and to find grace, to be helped in our needs. "
