A Faith Boost by Bridget A. Thomas

Over the last few weeks I have been talking about faith. We all want to have strong faith, but it is not always easy. Now, more than ever, we need to stand strong in faith. One key element of faith that I have mentioned each week is that God is our strength. We need to keep our focus on Him.

I have been reading (and re-reading) through the Psalms during the pandemic. They have brought me a lot of comfort in these difficult times. But they also have highlighted an important fact – God is our strength, our source and our provider.

I have compiled just a few verses that stood out to me which emphasize how God is our strength:

  • “But you, Lord, are a shield around me…” – Psalm 3:3
  • “…for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.” – Psalm 4:8
  • “The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.” – Psalm 9:9
  • “I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” – Psalm 16: 8
  • “I love you, Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.” – Psalm 18:1-2
  • “It is God who arms me with strength…” – Psalm 18:32
  • “You armed me with strength…” – Psalm 18:39
  • “…You are my strength…” – Psalm 22:19
  • “…my hope is in you all day long.” – Psalm 25:5
  • “The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid?” – Psalm 27:1
  • “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.” – Psalm 28:7
  • “The Lord gives strength to his people…” – Psalm 29:11
  • “…be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me.” – Psalm 31:2
  • “He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.” – Psalm 40:2
  • “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear…” – Psalm 46:1-2
  • “Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.” – Psalm 54:4
  • “Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.” – Psalm 55:22
  • “In God I trust and am not afraid…” – Psalm 56:11
  • “You are my strength, I watch for you; you, God, are my fortress, my God on whom I can rely…” – Psalm 59:9
  • “But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble. You are my strength, I sing praise to you; you, God, are my fortress, my God on whom I can rely.” – Psalm 59:16-17
  • “For you have been my refuge, a strong tower…” – Psalm 61:3
  • “Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.” – Psalm 62:6-7

If you are struggling to put faith over fear, I encourage you to choose a Bible verse (either from one of the ones above, or another that you like) that speaks to you. Write it down on several note cards, and place them around your home, car, office, etc. Then any time you need a faith boost, read the verse and remind yourself that God is your strength.

    God is indeed our strength, source and provider. I too find that reading and repeatedly reminding myself of specific passage that speak into specific situations helps me trust that even though I do not know the outcome of the difficult situation, I am choosing to keep it all at His feet and He has it all under control. We all need a boost in our faith now and again.
    Thanks for sharing Bridget 🙂.

    • So true! I love the way you put that about keeping it all at His feet! There is power in God’s Word! So using Scripture to remind us that He is in control helps bring us peace and comfort. Thanks for commenting, friend! 💜
