What is Faith?

What is Faith?

Take the first step in faith,
You don't have to see the whole staircase,
Just take the first step.
Martin Luther King Jr.

Faith is a gift of God
Blaise Pascal

Faith is the divine evidence whereby the spiritual man discerneth God,
and the things of God
John Wesley

The strengthening of faith comes through
staying with it in the hour of trial
Catherine Marshall

The primary cause of unhappiness in the world today is
...lack of faith
Carl Jung

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

Pity the human being who is not able to connect faith within himself with the infinite
...He who has faith has...
an inward reservoir of courage, hope, confidence, calmness,
and assuring trust that all will come out well
- even though to the world it may appear to come out most badly

Faith makes the uplook good, the outlook bright,
the inlook favorable, and the future glorious
V Raymond Edman

For the believer, there is no question;
for the unbeliever, there is no answer

Skeptism has never founded empires,
established principles, or changed the world's heart.
The great doers in history have alwasy been men of faith
Edwin Hubbel Chaplin

Any featherhead can have confidence in times of victory,
but the test is to have faith when things are going wrong
Sir Winston Churchill

The light of God surrounds me,
The love of God enfolds me,
The power of God protects me,
The presence of God watches over me
from a prayer card

I admire the serene assurance of those who have religious faith.
It is wonderful to observe the calm confidence of a Christian with four aces
Mark Twain

Faith is a Fantastic Adventure In Trusting Him
Corrie Ten Boom

Faith never knows where it is being led,
but it loves and knows the One who is leading
Oswald Chambers

God hasn't called me to be successful.
He's called me to be faithful
Mother Teresa

There is one inevitable criterion of judgement touching religious faith in doctrinal matters.
Can you reduce it to practice?
If not, have none of it
Hosea Ballou

I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen.
Not only because I see it, but because I see everything by it.

Faith is an outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace

The great act of faith is when man decides that he is not God
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr

Although the threads of my life
have often seemed knotted,
I know, by faith,
that on the othe side of the embroidery
there is a crown
Corrie Ten Boom

Trust the past to God's mercy,
The present to God's love,
The future to God's providence
St Augustine
