When your faith is weak!

Have you ever been down on your faith? I know I sure have. We try to be strong but there are just some days that we just can't be. Sometimes you feel weak spiritually. And when you do, you probably feel like you’re the only one. I'm here to tell you that you're not the only one.  Every Christian experiences times of weakness. Due to some things going on in my life, I've found it hard to have faith lately. Afterall, I am only human. There will be days like this. We aren't perfect actually we are far from it.




If you’re like me, you don’t like feeling weak in your faith. And you don’t have to! Weakness doesn’t have to be the new normal! God has the power to strengthen you.

The good news is that no matter how weak your faith is, God has the power to strengthen you. Here are some verses that we can all use when we are going through weak times.

Mark 9:24- And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

Luke 22:31-32 - And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

Romans 10:17- So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

John 6:35- And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

Hebrews 13:5-6 -  Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

2 Corinthians 4:17-  For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 -  And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

1 Corinthians 16:13- Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.

Psalm 50:15- And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.


I hope these have been of some help to you. We all need to be reminded that God is here for us. We may not see him or feel him at certain times in our life, but rest assured he is still there.
