Faith...Taking God At His Word
April 21 | Taken from a message by Adrian Rogers
What is faith? Faith is not a hunch. Faith is not positive thinking. Faith does not believe everything will work out. Faith is not responding in emotion or feeling to miracles and signs. Faith does not believe simply that God can.
Faith knows that God will. Real faith is death to doubt. Faith is taking God at His word. It is dumb to discouragement. It is blind to impossibilities. It knows that God will. Now this is the kind of faith we need.
Romans 5:1-2 says, "Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God."
