How to Boost Your Plummeting Faith

When we’re in the midst of seriously hard times, it can be difficult to prevent our faith from plummeting.

But it’s not impossible.

When we’re tempted to allow our minds to rotate around and around our currently not so great situations, we need to take action and shift our focus. Because obsessively focusing on our not so great facts is precisely when our hearts shrivel and our faith starts to sink.

When we shift our focus from our hard situations onto God’s word, truth begins to push back darkness, our hearts are revived and refreshed, and our faith strengthens.

Here are 7 awesome Scriptures that will boost your faith in spite of what’s going on around you. Breathe them in. Exhale unbelief. Shift your focus.

1.  I know that You can do all things, and that no thought or purpose of Yours can be restrained or thwarted. (Job 42:2)

2.  For with God nothing is ever impossible, and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment. (Luke 1:37)

3.  The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest. (Exodus 14:14)

4.  I will cry to God Most High, Who performs on my behalf and rewards me—Who brings to pass His purposes for me and surely completes them! (Psalm 57:2)

5.  For we walk by faith [we regulate our lives and conduct ourselves by our conviction or belief respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, with trust and holy fervor; thus we walk] not by sight or appearance. (2 Corinthians 5:7) (AMP)

6.  The Lord is my strength and my impenetrable shield; my heart trusts, relies on and confidently leans on Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song will I praise Him. (Psalm 28:7) (AMP)

7.  Do not, therefore, fling away your fearless confidence, for it carries a great and glorious compensation of reward. For you have need of steadfast patience and endurance, so that you may perform and fully accomplish the word of God, and thus receive and carry away and enjoy to the full what is promised. (Hebrews 10:35-36) (AMP)

Whatever you’re currently going through, know this: God is greater. He loves you. And He is at work. Leave a comment so I can pray for you. And I invite everyone to pray for those who leave comments…let’s be a community of women who prays for and with each other!

These words of encouragement are indeed a source of strength for me. I am a 24/7 caregiver for my husband who has Parkinson with dementia and I need both spiritual and emotional strength daily.

please pray for me I'm in the middle of a spiritual transition, it doesn't feel good and at times my vision for my spiritaul life seems very dim, but just pray God's continual strength upon my life that I would continue to move forward in him and not give up and that I am made even more stronger and for me to see things through his perspective and not my own uderstanding

Another chronic sinus infection for me. Yet, even through sickness and pain, I know that God is with me and He loves me. I am thankful for God's love and provisions. :-)

Julie, thank you for these scriptures! I am currently in a good place in my life, but I struggle with depression, so I know at some point I will have dark times again. I am saving this email for those times!!!!

Thank you so much for these verses. They have been a huge encouragement to me. I suffer from debilitating pain and the past week I have been plummeting with the thoughts of will this be my life. I have written these verses down to have by me to read and pray over when the pain keeps me awake. And also to read every morning as I start another day. Thank you so very much and God Bless you.

Thank you for these Scriptures. I am feeling weary and weak with struggles with my young adult children and ill husband. Will print these out and carry them to keep them in my mind and heart.

I am having serious health problems and financial problems. I cannot find a job. Please pray for someone to have a heart for me and hire me. I cannot survive much longer without a permanent, full-time job. I am alone and trying so hard to keep my faith that Jesus sees me and he will come through with a solution. He will make a way where there is no way.

Please pray for me to find contentment in the Lord. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for over six years now and it's not easy. Some days are much easier than others. I don't want to put or find my happiness in having kids, I want to put it in the Lord, but my heart aches and it's so hard. It consumes me and I don't like it. Help me Father. Take this pain away.
