for he that cometh to God must believe
that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek
“According to thy faith
be it unto thee,” would seem to be the Lord’s method of dealing with
all who are His disciples, from first to last of their Christian
walk and experience. Faith when He seems not to notice us; faith
when things seem to be going prosperously with us in our spiritual
affairs and in our temporal affairs; and faith equally strong when
the currents and forces seem all to be against us. The victory that
overcomes the world is the faith that in all conditions is able to
look up to the Lord with absolute confidence in His goodness and
faithfulness, and to realize that, according to His promise,
eventually all things will work together for good to us because we
are His people.
