    Why Is It Important to Have Faith?

    It’s important to have faith because in the Bible it says that it’s impossible to please God without faith (Hebrews 11:6). When we have faith and speak life into situations, we can move mountains. The Word of God says that with a mustard seed of faith (the smallest seed in the world), we can literally move situations around. We can either walk in faith and hope, or fear and doubt. We can choose what we want to feed, and what we feed grows.

    We need to have faith because our hope in the things unseen is what secures our salvation. We know as believers God is there, but we walk by FAITH, not by sight. Things may look bad, but God will turn it for good.

     

    Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1)

     

    God warns us about doubting and also having fear (James 1:6). We know God hasn’t given us a spirit of fear, and we need to trust in God and know that He will provide in all areas of our lives. It is so important to feed your faith and read God’s Word and truth, for faith comes by hearing (Romans 10:17).

     

    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. (Matthew 17:20)

     

    Why It’s Important to Have Faith

    1. Faith pleases God: The Bible says that it is impossible to please God without it. (Hebrews 11:6)

    2. We can move mountains with faith of a mustard seed. (Matthew 17:20)

    3. Faith gives us hope. (Hebrews 11:1, Romans 10:17)

    4. Faith in Christ secures our salvation. (1 John 5:5, 1 Corinthians 15:54-58)

    5. When we doubt, we are blown to and fro like the waves of the sea. (James 1:6)

     

    But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. (James 1:6)

     

    PI Girls, how do you keep your faith? Do you listen to worship? Read the Word? What helps build your faith?

    1. Thank you for writing such an uplifting post. I’ve been struggling with my faith a lot lately as my family has been having serious financial issues that just don’t seem to get easier. I’ve been doing a lot to try and keep my faith strong, like reading the Word and journaling through it a lot, praying, writing letters to God and listening to Christian music.
