Misguided requests

We are forever asking God to do things that He either has already done or cannot do because of our unbelief. We plead for Him to speak when He has already spoken and is at that very moment speaking. We ask Him to come when He is already present and waiting for us to recognize Him. We beg the Holy Spirit to fill us while all the time we are preventing Him by our doubts.

Those who do not believe do not pray.
This is a good functional definition of faith.
Faith prays, unbelief does not.

When faith falters

When belief in God becomes difficult,
the tendency is to turn away from Him;
but in heaven’s name to what?

–C. K. Chesterton

Enough light

There is enough light
for those who want to believe
and enough shadows to blind
those who don’t.

–Blaise Pascal

Faith and joy

The opposite of joy
is not sorrow.
It is unbelief.
