la certeza de lo que se espera

"When the will of man acts in accord with the will of God, that is faith. When the will of man acts in opposition to the will of God, that is unbelief."


"...faith is a far cry from feeling or religious mood. It is not vague. It hears the Word of the Lord and it acts."



"To those who will He gives"


"There are truths that cannot be known except by doing them. The Gospels show many cases of those who wished to understand rather than to obey."


"The Bible does not explain everything necessary for our intellectual satisfaction, but it explains everything necessary for our obedience and hence, for God's satisfaction."

I've been reading my journal from last fall and found a bunch of quotes from Elisabeth Elliot. She had a lot to say about faith, something that's being tested in this season I'm in.

I want a faith that moves mountains.
I want more of God.

O, Lord, make me faithfull
