[Papercut Press] 2003-03-24 - Faith & Trust

Luke 17:5 "And the apostles said to the Lord, 'Increase our faith!'"

In the light of current world events I thought I would dig up some quotes on  faith and trust in life and in God. I hope that maybe a couple of them will be an encouragement to you. These are taken from a couple of books of quotes.

"Faith, to put it simply, is the conviction that God does not tell lies."  Frank Retief

"Faith is not shelter against difficulties, but belief in the face of all  contradictions." Paul Tournier

"True faith is ever connected with hope." John Calvin

"Where reason cannot wade there faith may swim." Thomas Watson

"The soul is the life of the body. Faith is the life of the soul. Christ is the life of faith." John Flavel

"If we love Christ much, surely we shall trust him much." Thomas Brooks

"Whatever our trust is most in, that is our God." Richard Sibbes

"A Christian with faith has nothing to fear from the facts." Paul Johnson

"Mature faith does not live by answers to prayer, but by prayer." R. E. O. White

"Faith unlocks the divine storehouse, but unbelief bars its doors." Curtis Vaughan

"Pray for a faith that will not shrink when washed in the waters of affliction." Ernest Wadsworth

"Hope is the foundation of patience." John Calvin

"The would hopes for the best, but Jesus Christ offers the best hope." John Wesley White

"Hope fills the afflicted soul with such inward joy and consolation, that it can laugh while tears are in the eye, sigh and sing all in a breath; it is called 'the rejoicing of hope" (Hebrews 3:6)." William Gurnall
