A great quote from AW Pink on faith

Abraham did but illustrate what is all too sadly common among the Lord's people- that which might be termed the inconsistency of faith. How often those who are not afraid to trust God with their souls, are afraid to trust Him with regard to their bodies! How often those who have the full assurance of faith in regard to eternal things, are full of unbelief and fear when it comes to temporal things! We have believed in the Lord and it has been counted unto us for rigteousness; yet, how often, like Abraham, in the matter of the practical concerns of our daily life, we too, have more confidence in our own wisdom and scheming than we have in the sufficency of God.

May God strengthen your faith.

I agree with Earl. This is an excellent quote that convicts me.

Yes, we do need to trust the Lord daily.

Oh my! Bro. Matthew, do you have toe-stomping insurance?? That one HURT!!

Dyspraxic Fundamentalist said...

One of the things about old AW Pink was that he did not mince his words much.

Earl said...

Matthew, thanks for the spoken prayer. I am always fascinated with the various aspects of faith and what it means in our lives and my life in particular.

Dyspraxic Fundamentalist said...

I think Pink is right that it is easier to have faith for going to heaven than to have faith that God will provide the things we need in the immediate future.

Yes, it is.

David, I lifted my 'avatar' from an image on the internet.

My previous 'avatar' was created by Rose from a photograph. If you ask Rose nicely she might make you one.

God Bless

Matthew
