The Gift of Faith

"Faith so completely takes God at his word that it is willing to do what he says and stay inside his boundaries. Faith is a response of your heart to God that completely alters the way you live your life. You don't just think by faith; you live by faith. ...But putting your entire existence in the hands of One whom you cannot see, touch, or hear is far from natural. This is why faith is only ever a gift of divine grace. You and I have all the power in the world to doubt and no independent power at all to believe. So if you are living by faith, don't proudly pat yourself on the back as if you did something great. No, raise your eyes and hands toward heaven and thank God for gifting you with the desire and ability to believe" - Paul Tripp, New Morning Mercies

  1. Good points all. We all have faith only because God gives us faith as a grace. But, and I believe this, we must seek it, in order to finally have it.
