The Object of True Faith

True faith is not the intellectual ability to visualize unseen things to the satisfaction of our imperfect minds; it is rather the moral power to trust Christ. To be contented and unafraid when going on a journey with his father the child need not be able to imagine events; he need but know the father. Our earthly lives are one shining web of golden mystery which we experience without understanding, how much more our life in the Spirit. Jesus Christ is our all in all. We need but trust Him and He will take care of the rest. Possibly it is because of my own innate dullness that I have found such deep satisfaction in these words of the prophet: "I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them" (Isa. 42:16). God has not failed me in this world; I can trust Him for the world to come.


We live by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7


As we learn to trust God during these days on earth we shall find it less difficult to trust Him concerning the life to come. It is the person of God we trust.


Lord, I look back over the years and marvel at how You have been with me, provided for me, lifted me up when I have fallen. Because of who You are I can trust You for the future.

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
