If you desire faith, then you have faith enough.
What is faith but a kind of betting or speculation after all? It should be, I bet that my Redeemer liveth.
You can do very little with faith, but you can do nothing without it.
There is no such thing as a lack of faith. We all have plenty of faith, it's just that we have faith in the wrong things. We have faith in what can't be done rather than what can be done. We have faith in lack rather than abundance but there is no lack of faith. Faith is a law.
To us also, through every star, through every blade of grass, is not God made visible if we will open our minds and our eyes.
Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may not understand at the time.

Do you know how to establish, regulate and direct the metabolism of your body -- the assimilation of foodstuff so that it builds muscles, bones and flesh? No, you don't know how consciously, but there is a wisdom within you that does know.
Science has sometimes been said to be opposed to faith, and inconsistent with it. But all science, in fact, rests on a basis of faith, for it assumes the permanence and uniformity of natural laws -- a thing which can never be demonstrated.
All that I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.
Just as a small fire is extinguished by the storm whereas a large fire is enhanced by it-likewise a weak faith is weakened by predicament and catastrophes whereas a strong faith is strengthened by them.

Faith is building on what you know is here, so you can reach what you know is there.
Some things have to be believed to be seen.
God does not require you to follow His leadings on blind trust. Behold the evidence of an invisible intelligence pervading everything, even your own mind and body.
Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shall find it after many days.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. [Hebrews 11:1]
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made... [Romans 1:20]
May it not be that, just as we have to have faith in Him, God has to have faith in us and, considering the history of the human race so far, may it not be that faith is even more difficult for Him than it is for us?
Faith is to believe what we do not see; and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe.
In order to be a realist you must believe in miracles.
You don't decide to build a church because you have money in the bank. You build because God says this is what I should do. Faith is the supplier of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.

Our faith in the present dies out long before our faith in the future.
Faith is not a thing which one loses, we merely cease to shape our lives by it.
I believe though I do not comprehend, and I hold by faith what I cannot grasp with the mind.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. [Hebrews 11:1]

According to your faith; be it done unto you.
And without faith it is impossible to please him, for he who comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of those who seek him. [Hebrews 11:6]

For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
The greatest act of faith is when a man understands he is not God.
