Faith


Blast from the past…

SPEAKZEASY

There are degrees to faith.  We cannot believe unless we have some sign or some great manifestation of feeling.  This may be true faith, but it is imperfect.  It always looks for feeling or some token.  It marks quite an advance in faith when we trust God without feelings  it is blessed to believe without having any emotion.  There is a third stage of faith which even transcends that of Gideon, who trusted only when he felt his fleece was wet.  The first phase of faith believes when there are favourable emotions, the second believes when there is the absence of feeling, but this third form of faith believes God when circumstances, emotions, people, appearances and human reason all urge to the contrary.

When is the time to trust?

Is it when all is calm,

When waves the victor’s palm,

And life is one glad psalm

Of joy and praise…
