Unbelief is your enemy!
Faith is your friend!
active faith in a believer’s heart, and opposes it with all his power.
The world and worldly people despise anyone who lives by faith in the Son of God.
Belief is saying “Yes! And “Amen!” to the word of God, the promises of God, the glories of Christ, the promptings of the Holy Spirit.
Unbelief is Mister “yeah but…” .
Faith sees more in a promise of God to help than in all other things to hinder; …
… but unbelief, notwithstanding God’s promise, says “How can these things be?”
Faith will give comfort in the midst of fears, but unbelief causes fears in the midst of comforts.
Faith will suck sweetness out of God’s rod, but unbelief can find no comfort in the greatest mercies.
Faith makes great burdens light, but unbelief makes light ones intolerably heavy.
Faith gives us peace and comfort in our souls, but unbelief works trouble and tossings like the restless waves of the sea.
By faith we have our life in Christ’s fullness, but by unbelief we starve and pine away.
Faith gives us the victory over the law, sin, death, the devil, and all evils; but unbelief would have us exposed to them all.
By faith the children of Israel passed through the Red Sea, but by unbelief the generality of them perished in the wilderness.
The promises always center on the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ.
