  NOTES AND QUOTES FOR TODAY:

Faith Risks All On The Faithfulness Of God In His Word

     God reveals Himself only to faith. Unbelief never receives anything from God. Everything we get from God, we get through faith. Righteousness cometh by faith (Philippians 3:9). Salvation cometh by faith (Ephesians 2:8). Without faith, the heavens are locked. God decreed that the just shall live by faith (Romans 1:17). Without Faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6)
.
     “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God” (Romans 10:17). The basis of all faith is the Word of God. The written Word is the record God gave us of His Son, the Living Word. Faith believes the record. Unbelief makes God a liar (1 John 5:10).

     “He sent His Word and healed them…” (Psalm 107:20). Here is the great secret and plan. Here is described the wonderful way of God with the children of men. The Word is the gateway to God and the supernatural. Faith believes the Word and the promises. God is faithful. He never disappoints faith in His Word. When we meet the conditions, the promises are ours.

     The Bible is the story of men and women who have believed God’s Word and have performed great exploits of faith. Faith and patience inherit the promises. The Word inspires faith. Faith obtains the wonderful promises of God.

     “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). To faith, the Scriptures are discovered to be the infallible, unfailing, eternal Words of God (Matthew 5:18). Faith regards no circumstances, favourable or unfavourable. Faith asks only, “What saith the Word?” Faith banks all, risks all on the faithfulness of God in His Word.

Faith in God and His Word Is Never Disappointed

     Faith knows no impossibilities. To the father of the dumb boy, Jesus said, “…If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth” (Mark 9:23). He also said, “If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it” (John 14:14). The possibilities of faith are unlimited. God literally turns the universe over to faith. Did not one man bid the sun to stand still, and it obeyed? (Read Joshua 10:12.)

     Faith is not fear, but confidence and trust. Faith and fear cannot exist in the same heart. In the storm, Jesus wearied, slept. The disciples fearing, woke Him, crying, “…Master, carest thou not that we perish?” (Mark 4:38). Awakening, He calmed the storm, and rebuked them, saying, “…Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?…” (Matthew 8:26).

     Faith is not worry. Faith is freedom from worry. “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (1 Peter 5:7). Worry is sin. Worry is unbelief. “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God” (Philippians 4:6).

Why Worry When You Can Pray

     Faith leaves the outcome with God. Like Esther going in to the king, “…if I perish, I perish” (Esther 4:16).

     Faith never despairs. Like Paul on the Alexandrian grain ship, when all hope had fled, cried, “…be of good cheer: for I believe God…” (Acts 27:25). Faith, like David at Ziklag, when all was lost and his men sought to stone him, encourages itself in the Lord (1 Samuel 30:6).

     “Is any thing too hard for the Lord?…” (Genesis 18:14). “…faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises…” (Hebrews 11:33). Faith is the victory (1 John 5:4). When men believe, God works.

     Have Faith In God! For faith proves the promises of God and the faithfulness of God. (Read Mark 11:22-26.)

     Faith proves the promises of God. Faith proves the faithfulness of God.

The Bible reveals two ways which people are following to get into heaven. One way, the true way, is God’s way. God’s way into heaven is the way of peace and truth and righteousness. It is the only way approved of God. This way centers in the Lord Jesus Christ who said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me” (John 14:6). The Bible declares that there is another way. “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Prov. 14:12).

There are so many popular ways today filled with lost multitudes all over the land, such as the way of morality, the way of respectability, the way of religion, the way of churchianity, the way of baptism, the way of christening, the way of confirmation, the way of penance, the way of confession, the way of “doing the best I can”, the way of self, the way of education, the way of philosophy, the way of false isms and cults that crowd the street. Little wonder then when we speak to people about the way of salvation, that so many have asked, “How can I know which is the true way? There are so many different ideas and so many religions.”

But there is ONE difference between God’s way of salvation and man’s way, and that difference is found in a Person, the Lord Jesus Christ. You will notice that man leaves Christ out of the center of his way. You will discover that the modern false cults and isms demote Christ to a mere man and add something to what He has already done for your salvation and mine. We become children of God through a supernatural birth. Jesus said to Nicodemus: “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3). Jesus also said, “Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again” (John 3:7)
