7 Bible Verses To Help You Step Out In Faith

In today’s post, I’m sharing 7 Bible Verses to help you step out in faith when God is calling you to leave your comfort zone.

When we sense God calling us to do something, it’s really important we use spiritual discernment and make sure we’re really hearing from Him.

Yet, even when we know something is God’s will, we can often falter in our faith. And so, we need Scripture that will encourage us to be obedient to God’s will, no matter what we’re feeling.

So, let’s look at 7 lovely Bible verses that will help us step out in faith and be obedient to God’s will.

7 Bible Verses To Help You Step Out In Faith

bible verses about stepping out in faith

1. Be Strong and Courageous

“Be strong and courageous, and do the work.Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the Lord is finished.” 1 Chronicles 28:20

Often, fear can paralyse us from moving forward in the work God has for us.

Don’t allow it to be so. Don’t feed your fear or feelings of discouragement, instead turn your mind to the God who promises to be with you every step of the way. Remember; God will never fail you.

2. Faith as Small as a Mustard Seed

“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

When God leads us to do something, our small amount of faith can cause us to feel discouraged. We can often feel that the thing God asked us to do is not possible because of our weakness.

Yet, in Scripture we’re reminded that even if we only have a small amount of faith in God, big things can happen.

3. Fullness of Joy

“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11

Has God been leading you to take a step of faith, but you feel afraid of the unknown? Scripture reminds us that in the Lord’s presence, there is fullness of joy.

Doing what the Lord wants is key to living in that fullness of joy because it’s about walking in step with Him. We won’t achieve fullness of joy by going our own way!

4. Here I Am

“And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.”” Isaiah 6:8

When we behold the greatness of God, our natural response is to desire to be used by Him. To reach others with His love.

If you’re feeling discouraged about God’s calling on your life, spend some time today in getting to know Him better and praising Him. Ask Him to fill you with His Spirit. Then, like Isaiah, your heart will respond to Him in this wonderful surrender of “here I am! Send me!”

5. The Lord is Your Strength

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise Him. – Psalm 28:7

Often we can feel like we need to muster up enough strength to be obedient to God’s promptings. But we have it all backwards. While we can muster up something on our own, it is not true strength. True strength comes from God! It’s a gift from Him.

So don’t rely on yourself for strength. Rely on the Lord for strength.

6. He Remains Faithful

“if we are faithless, he remains faithful—for he cannot deny himself.” 2 Timothy 2:13

If you know God is calling you but you are worried that you will lack or sin or fail, remember this: the one who calls you is faithful.

Even if you and I should sin and be found faithless, still He will remain faithful. For He cannot deny himself.

7. If God is for us

“If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us all—how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.” Romans 8:31-34

Has God asked you to do something, but you fear lack of provision, obstacles, failure?

Remember God is sovereign. If He is for us, then who can be against us?

While we will encounter spiritual opposition when we follow God’s will, nothing can happen to us outside of God’s sovereign goodness. For “all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”

And again, remember God is faithful and He will supply all your needs as you seek His Kingdom first.
