Let Yours Be a Life of Faith in Every Little Detail

March 7, 2011

If Jesus is especially glorified in the faith of his people, then let yours be a life of faith in every little detail. Lean on him for spiritual supplies; lean on him for temporal supplies. Go to him in dark providences, that you may be kept from sinking. Go to him in bright providences, that you may be kept from falling. Go to him when the path is rough, that you may walk in it contentedly. Go to him when the path is smooth, that you may walk in it surely. Let your daily history be a traveling to Jesus empty, and a coming away from Jesus filled.

Keep the truth constantly and prominently before your eye, “The just shall live by faith.” If this is so, do not expect that God will ever permit you to live by sight.

Bend your whole soul submissively to him in this matter. Let his will and yours be one. If, in the course of your wilderness travels, he brings you into a great difficulty, yes, to the very edge of the sea, still, at his bidding, go forward, even though it be into that sea. Trust him to divide its waters, making a dry passage for your feet, and causing those very waves that threatened to engulf you, now to prove as a cloud covering you above, and as walls of strength fencing you in on every side.
