Job 23:8-10

8 "For though I go before, I find him not; If I come behind, I can get no knowledge of him; 9 If I go on the left side to ponder his works, I can not attain unto them. Again, if I go on the rightside, he hideth himself, that I cannot see him. 10 But as for my way, he knoweth it: and tryeth me as the gold in the fire.

Revelation 5:1-6

1 And I saw, in the right hand of him that sat in the throne, a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. 2 And I saw a strong angel which cried with a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?" 3 And no man in heaven nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. 4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open, and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 5 And one of the elders said unto me, "Weep not. Behold, a lion being of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, hath obtained to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof." 6 And I beheld, and lo, in the midst of the seat and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a lamb as though he had been killed, which had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the spirits of God, sent into all the world.

Genesis 3:2-5

2 And the woman said unto the serpent, "Of the fruit of the trees in the garden we may eat, 3 but of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, said God, see that ye eat not, and see that ye touch it not: lest ye die." 4 Then said the serpent unto the woman, "Tush, ye shall not die: 5 but God doth know, that whensoever ye should eat of it, your eyes should be opened and ye should be as God and know both good and evil."

Isaiah 40:25-31

25 'To whom now will ye liken me, and whom shall I be like?' sayeth the holy one. 26 Lift up your eyes on high, and consider who hath made those things, which come out by so great heaps; and he can call them all by their names. For there is nothing hid unto the greatness of his power, strength, and might. 27 "How may then Jacob think, or how may Israel say, 'My ways are hid from the LORD, and my God knoweth not of my judgments.' 28 Knowest thou not, or hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD which made all the corners of the earth, is neither weary nor faint: and that his wisdom cannot be comprehended? 29 But that he giveth strength unto the weary, and power unto the faint? 30 Children are weary and faint, and the strongest men fall: 31 But unto them that have the LORD before their eyes, shall strength be increased, Eagles wings shall grow upon them; When they run, they shall not fall; and when they go, they shall not be weary."

Jeremiah 29:11-13

11 For I know what I have devised for you sayeth the LORD. My thoughts are to give you peace, and not trouble, which I give you already; and that ye might have hope again. 12 Ye shall cry unto me, ye shall go and call upon me, and I shall hear you. 13 Ye shall seek me, and find me: Yea, if so be that ye seek me with your whole heart,

Matthew 14:25-31

25 In the fourth watch of the night, Jesus came unto them, walking on the sea: 26 and when his disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, "It is some spirit," and cried out for fear. 27 And straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, "Be of good cheer, it is I, be not afraid." 28 Peter answered him, and said, "Master, if thou be he, bid me come unto thee on the water." 29 And he said, "Come." And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. 30 But when he saw a mighty wind, he was afraid. And as he began to sink, he cried, saying, "Master save me." 31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said to him, "O thou of little faith: wherefore didst thou doubt?"

1 Peter 1:1-25

1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that dwell here and there as strangers throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia; 2 Elect by the foreknowledge of God the father, through the sanctifying of the spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ. Grace be with you, and peace be multiplied. 3 Blessed be God, the father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which through his abundant mercy begat us again unto a lively hope, by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from death, 4 to enjoy an inheritance immortal, and undefiled, and that perisheth not; reserved in heaven for you 5 which are kept by the power of God through salvation, which salvation is prepared already to be showed in the last time, 6 in the which time ye shall rejoice, though now for a season — if need require — ye are in heaviness, through manifold temptations, 7 that your faith, once tried, being much more precious than gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto laud, glory, and honour, at the appearing of Jesus Christ: 8 whom ye have not seen and yet love him, in whom even now, though ye see him not, yet ye believe, and rejoice with joy unspeakable and glorious: 9 receiving the end of your faith, the salvation of your souls. 10 Of which salvation have the prophets enquired, and searched, which prophesied of the grace that should come unto you; 11 searching when, or at what time, the spirit of Christ which was in them should signify — which spirit testified before — the passions that should come unto Christ, and the glory that should follow after. 12 Unto which prophets it was declared, that not unto themselves, but unto us, they should minister the things which are now showed unto you, of them which, by the holy ghost sent down from heaven, have preached unto you the things which the angels desire to behold. 13 Wherefore, gird up the loins of your minds, be sober, and trust perfectly on the grace that is brought unto you by the declaring of Jesus Christ; 14 as obedient children, not fashioning yourselves unto your old lusts of ignorance: 15 But as he which called you is holy, even so be ye holy in all manner of conversation, 16 because it is written, "Be ye holy, for I am holy." 17 And if so be that ye call on the father, which without respect of person judgeth according to every man's works, see that ye pass the time of your pilgrimage in fear: 18 Forasmuch as ye know how that ye were not redeemed with corruptible gold and silver from your vain conversation, which ye received by the traditions of the fathers, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb undefiled, and without spot, 20 which was ordained before the world was made: but was declared in the last times for your sakes. 21 Which, by his means, have believed on God that raised him from death, and glorified him, that your faith and hope might be in God. 22 And forasmuch as ye have purified your souls through the spirit, in obeying the truth for to love brotherly without feigning, see that ye love one another with a pure heart, fervently: 23 for ye are born anew, not of mortal seed, but of immortal seed, by the word of God which liveth, and lasteth forever. 24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man is as the flower of grass; the grass is withered, and the flower falleth away, 25 but the word of the Lord endureth ever. And this is the word which by the gospel was preached among you.

Psalms 138:8

8 The LORD shall make good his loving-kindness toward me. Yea, thy mercy, O LORD, endureth forever; despise not then the works of thine own hands.

Isaiah 41:10

10 Be not afraid, for I will be with thee. Look not behind thee, for I will be thy God, to strengthen thee, help thee, and to keep thee with this righthand of mine.

1 John 3:22

22 and whatsoever we ask, that we shall receive of him: because we keep his commandments, and do those things which are pleasing in his sight.

Romans 14:23

23 For he that maketh conscience, is damned if he eat: Because he doth it not of faith. For whatsoever is not of faith, that same is sin.

5 Put thy trust in the LORD with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding.

Mark 11:22-25

22 And Jesus answered, and said unto them, "Have confidence in God. 23 Verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, 'Take away thyself, and cast thyself into the sea'; and shall not waver in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he sayeth shall come to pass, whatsoever he sayeth shall be done to him. 24 Therefore I say unto you, Whatsoever ye desire when ye pray, believe that ye shall have it and it shall be done unto you. 25 And when ye stand and pray: forgive, if ye have anything against any man;

Psalms 31:22

22 And when I made haste, I said, "I am cast out of the sight of thine eyes." Nevertheless, thou heardest the voice of my prayer, when I cried unto thee.

Mark 9:24

24 And straightway the father of the child cried with tears, saying, "Lord I believe, help mine unbelief."

John 20:27

27 After that said he to Thomas, "Bring thy finger hither and see my hands, and bring thy hand and thrust it into my side, and be not faithless, but believing."

Hebrews 11:1-40

1 Faith is a sure confidence of things which are hoped for, and a certainty of things which are not seen. 2 By it the elders were well reported of. 3 Through faith we understand that the world was ordained, by the word of God: and that things which are seen, were made of things which are not seen. 4 By faith, Abel offered unto God a more plenteous sacrifice than Cain: by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: by which also he being dead, yet speaketh. 5 By faith was Enoch translated that he should not see death; neither was he found, for God had taken him away. Before he was taken away, he was reported of that he had pleased God. 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: For he that cometh to God, must believe that God is, and that he is a rewarder of them that seek him. 7 By faith Noah honoured God, after that he was warned of things which were not seen, and prepared the ark to the saving of his household, through the which ark he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which cometh by faith. 8 By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed to go out into a place which he should afterward receive to inheritance, and he went out, not knowing whither he should go. 9 By faith he removed into the land that was promised him, as into a strange country, and dwelt in tabernacles: and so did Isaac, and Jacob, heirs with him of the same promise. 10 For he looked for a city having a foundation, whose builder and maker is God. 11 Through faith Sarah also received strength to be with child, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful which had promised. 12 And therefore sprang thereof one — and of one which was as good as dead — so many in multitude, as the stars of the sky, and as the sand of the sea shore which is innumerable. 13 And they all died in faith, and received not the promises: but saw them afar off, and believed them, and saluted them: and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. 14 They that say such things, declare that they seek a country. 15 Also, if they had been mindful of that country, from whence they came out, they had leisure to have returned again. 16 But now they desire a better, that is to say a heavenly. Wherefore God is not ashamed of them, even to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city. 17 By faith Abraham offered up Isaac, when he was tempted, and he offered him being his only begotten son, which had received the promises: 18 Of whom it was said, "In Isaac shall thy seed be called." 19 For he considered that God was able to raise up again from death. Wherefore received he him, for an example of the resurrection. 20 In faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau, as concerning things to come. 21 By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph, and bowed himself toward the top of his scepter. 22 By faith Joseph, when he died, remembered the departing of the children of Israel, and gave commandment of his bones. 23 By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his father and mother, because they saw he was a proper child: neither feared they the king's commandment. 24 By faith Moses, when he was of a great age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter, 25 and chose rather to suffer adversity with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season, 26 and esteemed the rebuke of Christ greater riches, than the treasure of Egypt. For he had a respect unto the reward. 27 By faith he forsook Egypt, and feared not the fierceness of the king. For he endured, even as he had seen him which is invisible. 28 Through faith he ordained the Easter lamb, and the effusion of blood, lest he that destroyed the first born should touch them. 29 By faith they passed through the reed sea as by dry land, which when the Egyptians had assayed to do, they were drowned. 30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they were compassed about, seven days. 31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with unbelievers, when she had received the spies to lodging peaceably. 32 And what shall I more say? The time would be too short for me to tell of Gideon, of Barach, and of Samson, and of Jephthah. Also of David and Samuel, and of the prophets, 33 which through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained the promises, stopped the mouths of lions, 34 quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, of weak were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. 35 And the women received their dead raised to life again. Others were racked, and would not be delivered, that they might receive a better resurrection. 36 Others tasted of mockings, and scourgings, moreover of bonds and prisonment: 37 were stoned, were hewn asunder, were tempted, were slain with swords, walked up and down in sheep skins, in goat skins, in need, tribulation, and vexation, 38 which the world was not worthy of: They wandered in wilderness, in mountains, in dens and caves of the earth. 39 And these all, through faith, obtained good report, and received not the promise; 40 God providing a better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.

Luke 24:38

38 And he said unto them, "Why are ye troubled? And why do thoughts arise in your hearts?

James 1:5-8

5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, which giveth to all men indifferently and casteth no man in the teeth; and it shall be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, and waver not. For he that doubteth is like the waves of the sea, tossed of the wind, and carried with violence. 7 Neither let that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8 A wavering minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Mark 11:23

23 Verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, 'Take away thyself, and cast thyself into the sea'; and shall not waver in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he sayeth shall come to pass, whatsoever he sayeth shall be done to him.

Matthew 14:31

31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said to him, "O thou of little faith: wherefore didst thou doubt?"

Jude 1:22

22 And have compassion on some, separating them:

Matthew 21:21

21 Jesus answered, and said unto them, "Verily I say unto you, if ye shall have faith, and shall not doubt, ye shall not only do that which I have done to the fig tree: but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, take thyself away, and cast thyself into the sea, it shall be done.

James 1:6

6 But let him ask in faith, and waver not. For he that doubteth is like the waves of the sea, tossed of the wind, and carried with violence.

Proverbs 3:5-8

5 Put thy trust in the LORD with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways have respect unto him, and he shall order thy goings. 7 Be not wise in thine own conceit, but fear the LORD, and depart from evil: 8 so shall thy navel be whole, and thy bones strong.
