"O my people, trust Him all the time. Pour out your longings before Him, for He can help!" (Psalm 62:8).
"I have no faith in this matter," a minister said to an evangelist, "but I see it is in the Word of God and I am going to act on God's Word no matter how I feel."
The evangelist smiled. "Why, that is faith!" he said.
The Word of God is the secret of faith. "Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God." We do not attain or achieve faith, we simply receive it as we read God's Word.
Many a child of God is failing to enjoy God's richest blessings in Christ because he fails to receive the gift of faith. He looks within himself for some quality that will enable him to believe, instead of "looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith."
In the words of an anonymous poem published by War Cry:
He does not even watch the way.
His father's hand, he knows,
Will guide his tiny feet along
The pathway as he goes
A childlike faith! A perfect trust!
God grant us today,
A faith that grasps our Father's hand
And trusts Him all the way.
TODAY'S ACTION POINT: I will be wise in the ways of God today by looking for help from the One whom I know I can trust.
