So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Romans 10:17

My Utmost for His Highest

Ponder with me some thoughts on faith from Oswald Chambers’, My Utmost for His Highest. “Common sense is not faith, and faith is not common sense. Can you venture heroically on Jesus Christ’s statements when the facts of your common-sense life shout—“It’s a lie”? Let me say I believe God will supply all my need, and then let me run dry, with no outlook, and see whether I will go through the trial of faith, or whether I will sink back to something lower. Faith must be tested, because it can be turned into personal possession only through conflict. Believe steadfastly on Him (Jesus) and all you come up against will develop your faith. Faith is unutterable trust in God, trust which never dreams that He will not stand by us.” Romans 10:17 says “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Need more faith? Spend more time in God’s Word.
