Della Devotional - Faith

Have you ever wondered why It's so easy to have faith when things are going good but when they start to go south it's not so easy? It's easy to trust God and thank God for his blessings when things are going our way. When things are going badly we begin to doubt. We wonder if God is ever going to come through for us. Here are some verses on faith that we need to heed to.


  • Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  Hebrews 11:1
  • And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.  Luke 17:19
  • And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.  Luke 7:50
  • Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.  James 1:3
  • And Jesus answering said unto them, Have faith in God.  Mark 11:22
  • But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?  James 2:20
  • And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.  Luke 17:6 
  •  Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.  Mark 9:23

I myself am terribly guilty of having little faith when there is a rough patch. Why do I do this? God has always brought me through the storm. There is a reason that we go through the things we do. God knows what he is doing, He will never leave us or forsake us. He is still there in the midst of the storm. We may not feel him, but he is still there. We need to have stronger faith and I guarantee if we do, we will see a big difference in how much better our lives are. Let's choose this day to have more faith and putting our trust in God. He knows what is best for us. He see's the big picture!

  1. I think that this is an awesome reminder of God's love for us. It's so hard not to get down sometimes, but that's exactly what the devil wants us to do. I'm thankful that I have you for a friend to talk to when I need that extra reinforcement!
