You are being protected by God’s power through faith for a salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.
— 1 Peter 1:5, HCSB
He who is our sanctification, our righteousness, has given us the privilege of...a continually increasing faith. We must ever live by faith, and follow on to know the Lord.
God’s promises to us are so rich, so full, that we need never hesitate or doubt; we need never waver or backslide.
Will you believe these assurances? Will you say, “Yes, Lord, I take thee at thy word. I will begin to talk an increase of faith: I will take hold of the promises; they are for me.”
Oh, brethren and sisters, what we want is a living, striving, growing faith in the promises of God, which are indeed for you and for me.
We are to put our trust in God, and believe in him, and act in accordance with his will.
Praise the Lord and magnify his name. Then we shall see light in his Word, and follow on to know him, whose going forth is prepared as the morning.
God desires us to receive great blessings. His promises are so clearly stated that there is no cause for uncertainty. He desires us to take him at his word.
Wherever we are, we are under obligation as disciples of our Lord and Master, to anchor our faith in the promises of God. Individually we are to believe.
We are to turn for help and deliverance to Him who “according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope”…even the hope of an eternal inheritance reserved for those “who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation.”
— The Watchman, May 1, 1914
