Faith in the Promiser

30 Sep

There are thousands of believers who look upon the acquisition of faith as a mental struggle, the intense focusing of thoughts on a desired object or promise in order to bring it into being… Others understand faith as being in the words of a promise found in Scripture… This reduces the holy words of Scripture to the level of a magic spell… Faith is not directed at the words of a promise but rests in the One who made the promise.
