|Apprehending God | Aiden W. Tozer, 1948||Faith|
We apprehend the physical world by exercising the faculties given us for the purpose, and we possess spiritual faculties by means of which we can know God and the spiritual world if we will obey the Spirit's urge and begin to use them.

|Christ Our Healer | Albert B. Simpson, 1890||Faith|
Divine healing is the supernatural, divine power of God, infused into human bodies, renewing their strength and replacing the weakness of suffering human frames with the life and power of God.... It is the same power... that converted your soul.

|El Shaddai: The God Who Is Enough | Albert B. Simpson, 1897||Faith|
It may be that this is just where some of us are standing today. We have been trusting God in part and have been trying to do the other part ourselves, and God is speaking to us... "I am the Almighty God; walk before me and be thou perfect."

|Feeding Our Faith | George D. Watson, 1896||Faith|
Because faith is essential to the spiritual life—both to entering that life, and for any steps of progress in that life—it behooves us to give it all the nourishment possible. Faith can be fed and strengthened, and thus will grow.

|Foundation Truth, Number 26 (Autumn 2010) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2010||Faith|
The first step to walking in faith in God is to renounce your unbelief.... When this is done, when we have been afflicted to the extent that we mourn and weep... then we will be inspired to believe the promises of God.... We will then count Him faithful who promised.

|Foundation Truth, Number 3 (Autumn 2000) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2000||Faith|
"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God."... Someone has stated that the fool says this in his heart without the full consent of his mind, for if it be difficult to prove by human reasoning that there is a God, it is utterly impossible to prove that there is not.

|God’s Eagles | L. Y. Janes, 1937||Faith|
So God stirs our nests, and we weep and sob and cry—money gone, friends gone, church gone; nobody loves me. Then Jesus Christ stretches out one great wing, and we begin to take hold of Him, and then He moves out and up and away.

|Not Looking, but Trusting | William J. Harney, 1915||Faith|
Elijah would not... look at surroundings and circumstances. To look would have meant discouragement; to look would have defeated God's purpose... to look would have meant the loss of all. So he covered up his "lookers," and just would not look.

|One with Christ | J. Hudson Taylor, 1869||Faith|
When my agony of soul was at its height, a sentence in a letter from dear McCarthy was used to remove the scales from my eyes, and the Spirit of God revealed the truth of our oneness with Jesus as I had never known it before.

|Over-Waiting for God | James R. Miller, 1896||Faith|
There are times when closet prayer is not the duty of the hour.... We may think we are honoring God by waiting... but really we are dishonoring Him by lack of present faith and ready obedience. Blessing... cannot be given to us until we go forth to get it.

|Shall We Worry? | James R. Miller, 1888||Faith|
A practical piece of homely, common-sense wisdom says that there are two kinds of things we should not worry about—things we can help, and things we cannot. Evils we can help we ought to help.... But there are things we cannot help....

|Surmounting Barriers to Faith | George D. Watson, 1894||Faith|
Her quest was not yet over. For we now see four great barriers her faith had yet to surmount; namely, divine silence, human coldness, class, and humiliation. If we look at these in detail, we find that they illustrate the vital issues in many lives today.

|Treasures of the Kingdom, Number 26 (September 2003) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2003||Faith|
Terry noticed a brush pile next to the lawn. There were probably snakes living in it, Terry thought.... "Miss Richardson," said Terry, "there are snakes in that pile of brush!" "Terry," Miss Richardson replied, "the only snake around here is the one in your ear!"
