Where Faith begins, anxiety ends; Where anxiety begins, Faith ends.
Ponder these words of the LORD Jesus,"Only believe."
As long as we are able to TRUST in GOD, holding fast in heart, that he is able and willing to help those who rest on the LORD Jesus for salvation, in all matters which are for His glory and their good, the heart remains calm and peaceful.
It is only when we practically let go faith in His power or His love, that we lose our peace and become troubled.
This very day I am in great trial in connection with the work in which I am engaged; yet my soul was calmed and quieted by the remembrance of GOD'S power and love; and I said to myself this morning:
As David encouraged himself in Jehovah his GOD, when he returned to Ziklag, so will I encourage myself in GOD;"
And the result was peace of soul...It is the very time for faith to work, when sight ceases.
The greater the difficulties, the easier for faith.
As long as there remain certain natural prospects, faith does not get on even as easily (if I may say so), as when all natural prospects fail.
