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 diligently seek Him.
— Hebrews 11:6 MEV
There is a wonderful power in faith. It brings eternal things to view, and lays hold of the arm of infinite power.
If you have been educating your soul to gather up the dark chapters in your experience, turn over a new leaf and have a new, bright, cheerful experience; put your will wholly on the Lord’s side. We must exercise living faith if we would war successfully against the temptations of the enemy.
You are not to trust simply in pleasant emotions… Educate your thoughts in the line of God’s mercy.
Educate your tongue to speak of his goodness. Train the whole mind and soul to act in faith… You are glorifying the prince of darkness when you give up your thoughts and words to follow in the shadow he casts on your pathway.
Let your first morning thought be, “How good is the Lord! He is full of goodness and tender mercy.” Praise him.
Jesus has said, “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden.” This invitation is certainly for those who are burdened with unbelief; and his assurance is, “Ye shall find rest unto your souls.” It is not, “May be you shall find rest.” Oh, no; it is positive and certain: “Ye shall find rest.”
Come with your burdens, and lay them down at the foot of the cross, put off the yoke of self and sin, and wear the yoke of Him who is meek and lowly of heart.
By living faith, I grasp the hand of Jesus, and I am all light in the Lord. I do not look at self, I look to Jesus, my high priest, who presents my case to the Father, offering up the merits of his life and sacrifice.
Let us lift up Jesus, the Saviour of men. Talk of his love, tell of his power, and the angels of God will be attracted to you.
Will you have faith in God, who “so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life”?
— Signs of the Times, March 18, 1889
