True faith is trusting God and believing that He loves us with an everlasting love, and that He knows what is for our best good. True faith will lead us to choose God’s plan for our lives instead of our own; it will lead us to choose God’s way rather than our own way. In place of our ignorance, we gratefully accept God’s wisdom; in place of our weakness, we seek for His strength; in place of our sinfulness, we plead for His righteousness. Our life and everything that we are and have is already God’s for He made us and gave us skill to work and earn and acquire. True faith acknowledges God’s ownership and desires His blessings. True faith puts us in possession of all of the wonderful graces of God.
We do not see more of the power of God working in us and for us because we do not have a living faith. So often we manifest more faith in our own working than in what the great Creator God who made us can do. We devise and plan, but rarely pray. It is our privilege to go continually to our Heavenly Father asking for His grace and help; trusting in Him as a little child trusts in its loving earthly parent. God will do great things for us if we will only believe and have true faith in Him.
Pray and believe. Co-operate with your prayer hearing and answering God. When trials and problems arise, trust all with your Heavenly Father. He longs to have us reach out to Him in genuine faith. He wants you to expect great things from Him. He will give you understanding in earthly, as well as in spiritual matters. Ask God for wisdom and He will give it to you.
The God of Heaven owns the world and everyone and everything on it. Don’t let yourself talk in a hopeless, demoralized way; looking at appearances and complaining when perplexities and troubles come. Act and talk with invincible faith. Your Heavenly Father is rich in resources: Look to Him who is full of light and power!
In the book of God’s providence, the volume of life, we are each given a page. That page contains every particular of our life history: God’s knowledge of each one of us is so intimate that He even knows the number of hairs on our head. God’s earth born children are never absent from His mind. Jesus Christ came to this earth and stood before the children of men with the amassed love of eternity, and through our connection with Him, we are to receive, to reveal, and to impart this treasure.
If our hearts have been touched by God’s infinite love we shall never fear to trust ourselves to His wonderful care and guidance. In every difficulty God has His plan to bring deliverance. “No good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.” Psalm 84:11. We must not let ourselves fall into the trap of adding to our burden of today all the cares and problems that we perceive to be in the future. The God of heaven can remove every difficulty and cast it into the sea; He has thousands of ways to provide for us of which we know nothing.
In the bleakest days, when life seems perplexing and the future looks dark and forbidding, have faith in God. He is working out His will, doing all things well in behalf of His earth born children. He will renew your strength day by day. The love of God is as far above all other love as the heavens are higher than the earth. Your Heavenly Father watches over you with a love that is eternal and immeasurable. He is gentle and kind, and His power is unlimited and supreme.
What an exalted privilege to be the earth born sons and daughters of the Lord Almighty. God wants to be everything to us – we are His earth born children and He loves us with a love that is everlasting and unfathomable.
