A boy was once flying a kite and a passerby, looking up in the sky and not able to see the kite because of its height, asking him,
“What are you doing?”
“Flying my kite”, he replied.
“How do you know it’s there? You can’t see it”
The boy smiled, “I can feel the tug on the string”
Perhaps we can’t see God, but we can feel the tug of conviction He puts in our hearts, and we can go on faith believing His promises. But I was thinking, how to know His promises? How to go on faith believing? And the answer is: thru God’s Word, the Scripture. D.L. Moody’s famous quotes: “Some say that faith is the gift of God. So is the air, but you have to breathe it; so is bread, but you have to eat it. Some are wanting some miraculous kind of feeling. That is not faith. ‘Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God’ (Romans 10:17). That is whence faith comes. It is not for me to sit down and wait for faith to come stealing over me with a strong sensation, but it is for me to take God at His Word”.
Have faith in God and His promises
Faith that comes by hearing the Word of God
To strengthen the tug of conviction He puts in our hearts
To obey and love our Christ the Lord
THINK BIG. START SMALL. GO DEEP.
