Faith Must be Tried

Faith by its very nature must be tried, and the real trial of faith is not that we find it difficult to trust God, but that God’s character has to be cleared in our own minds.  Faith in its actual working out has to go through spells of unsyllabled isolation.  Never confound the trial of faith with the ordinary discipline of life.  Much that we call the trial of faith is the inevitable result of being alive.  Faith in the Bible is faith in God against every thing that contradicts Him—“I will remain true to God’s character whatever He may do.”  “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him”—this is the most sublime utterance of faith in the whole of the Bible.

My Utmost for His Highest, Oswald Chambers
