Faith, if you like, can be defined like this: It is a man insisting upon thinking when every thing seems determined to bludgeon and knock him down…The trouble with the person of little faith is that, instead of controlling his own thought, his thought is being controlled by something else, and, as we put it, he goes round and round in cirlces. That is the essence of worry….That is not thought; that is the absence of thought, a failure to think. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
When I read this I was greatly blessed. It reminds me of Romans 4 where Abraham knows the circumstances–his body is old, his wife can no longer have children but God said and that is enough. He believed against hope and circumstances and would not falter in thinking that God would do what He said He would do.
That is the lesson for me today!
