Chapter 6, Page 6, Book 16



Faith is like radar that sees through the fog -- the reality of things at a distance that the human eye cannot see.

Corrie ten Boom

June 6th - have faith

Faith is the daring of the soul to go farther than it can see. 

 William Newton Clark

I believe that in order to develop eyes of faith, in order to live life by faith, you need to live by faith. When you see things through the eyes of faith, God always is bigger than your problems.  Faith enables us to see what otherwise could not be seen.

Man says that seeing is believing, but God says that believing is seeing.  There are all kinds of ways to look at a situation, but we have two options in looking at life, looking at our circumstances, considering our hopes and our dreams and our aspirations and our challenges and our problems, you look at them with the eyes of fear or you look at them with the eyes of faith.

 God gives us both our sight and our faith. Our sight guides us through this present world. It directs very many of our decisions. However, what we see is not always the truth. Our sight can confuse us; it can even cause us to make wrong and foolish decisions.  We can’t go through life trying to make sense of what we see with our eyes or attempting to make decisions, plans, and assumptions based purely on what is visible.  Sometimes we just have to take things on faith.

Faith opens the door to miracles.  Every time you stretch your faith, God does a miracle  


Faith sees through the fog.

I like that quote about life is 10% and then 90% of how we deal with the circumstances we are given. Faith is so important to get through this life well I do believe. I am glad for the times God has stretched my faith, afterwards, sometimes hard living through those times.

I agree with this assessment. "We can’t go through life trying to make sense of what we see with our eyes or attempting to make decisions, plans, and assumptions based purely on what is visible. Sometimes we just have to take things on faith."

WE all must keep the faith. I like the 10%/90% statement also. It makes sense!
