12 Quotes About Stepping Out In Faith

Today I’m sharing twelve inspiring stepping out in faith quotes as this is a topic I’ve been thinking about a lot lately.

What does the expression “stepping out in faith” actually mean though?

I would say this expression means an intentional choice to obey God’s word, despite circumstances, other people’s opinions, or past experience.

One of the ways I believe helps us to do this is to read about other people’s faith journeys in the form of quotes.

So ok, let’s jump into today’s topic: stepping out in faith quotes.

  • Lo

    OMG, this was so beautiful. I’m in this place of learning who God is + teaching that to my 11 year old daughter. It’s been so beautiful to learn more about who he is, his character + his love for me. Faith is something that I’ve wanted to know more about + these quotes beautifully illistrate what faith is. I’ve been searching for this feeling to come over me, but that isn’t what faith is. Now I know that faith is action, a choice + I’m making the choice to step out on faith + believe God, his promises + all he has for me.
