Living By Faith

path thru woods

As believers, we no longer live under the law, looking to it to tell us what to do or not do, then trying our best to do it. Instead, we live on the faith principle, the inner life principle, of who really is our life—Christ.

We trust that He directs us, opens or closes doors for us, and speaks directly to us, giving us a message or whatever is needed for the occasion. We trust that He is living through us. We may not feel it at any given moment, but we live by faith that He is our life.

He can’t get closer

No prayer can ever
bring God any closer.
Already, without any effort
on your part,
God patiently dwells
within the tender recesses
of your own heart.

No more to offer

Paradise by Lysa.Fontaine 1 copy

If you are a Christian, I have no blessing to offer you, because you have them all in Jesus Christ. All you can do is begin to discover the blessings in Him that you already have but have not yet possessed in experience.

The moment you are redeemed and the moment the Lord Jesus is come to indwell your redeemed humanity, God has given you the plenitude of heaven. You will never be wealthier than the day you were redeemed, but you can live in self-imposed poverty for the rest of your life if want do. What we want to do is to discover how to explore and enjoy all that God has already given you if you are saved. It will be the Devil’s business to prevent it.

–Major W. Ian Thomas
