Quote of the Week
No, it is recognizing God's promise as an actual fact, believing it is true, rejoicing in the knowledge of the truth, and then simply resting because God said it." A.B. Simpson
This quote meant so much to me. We are often fooled by the world's definition of faith... "through an act of your will" We hear it everyday in the media, in self-help books, through motivational speakers, Talk TV has been teaching it for years, but it's a lie. We are not God.
Real faith is taking God at His Word. Trusting Him. It has nothing to do with us. He alone is the great I AM. His promises are true and we can rest in Him and rejoice in it!
"Glory in His holy name; Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the LORD!" Psalm 105:3
"Love...rejoices in the truth" 1 Cor. 13:6
