Common sense is not faith, and faith is not common sense; they stance in relation of the natural and the spiritual. Can you trust Jesus Christ where your common sense cannot trust Him? … Les 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…
What is your faith up against just now? The test will either prove that your faith is right, or it will kill it…Faith is unutterable trust in God, trust which never dreams that He will not stand by us. -Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, August 29.
9 God, within your temple,
we contemplate your faithful love.
14 “This God, our God forever and ever—
he will always lead us.”
