Faith & Fear

Faith and Fear of the Lord

Faith is believing in something that you do not see.  It is a gift from God, not earned by ourselves.      And the apostles said unto the Lord, increase our faith.  Luke 17:5

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

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

Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.  But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.  For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.  Galatians 3:24-26

Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in His blood, to declare His righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, though the forbearance of God.    Romans 3:24,25

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:  it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.    Ephesians 2:8,9

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace where in we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.    Romans 5:1,2

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench al the fiery darts of the wicked.    Ephesians 6:16

Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree,... And  all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.      Matthew 21:21-22

And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.  Mark 11:22

Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.  Mark 9:23

(For we walk by faith, not by sight.)     2 Corinthians 5:7

Behold, his soul which is lifted up is now upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.     Habakkuk 2:4

To open their eyes, to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in Me.  Acts 26:18  

Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?       John 11:40
