Faith means being sure
of the things we hope for.
A line is drawn in the sand; it’s called “Faith.” You can’t straddle it; you have to plant your feet on one side or the other. Inflexible faith is not easily achieved; in life’s stormy seasons it’s challenged.
You’ve turned a crucial corner when you trust God so completely that you believe he is up to something good, even when everything looks bad.
Trouble comes . . . but you believe God’s promise, “My grace is sufficient for you” (2 Cor 12:9).
Guilt torments . . . but you believe God’s promise, “I will remember your sins no more” (Heb 10:17).
O for a faith that will not shrink,
Tho’ pressed by ev’ry foe,
That will not tremble on the brink
Of any earthly woe.
Feed your faith on his promises
and your doubts will starve.
