I do not want merely to possess a faith, I want a faith that possesses me.   Charles Kingsley

Faith is not the belief that God will do what you want. It is the belief that God will do what is right.   Max Lucado

Christ will always accept the faith the puts its trust in Him.   Andrew Murray

Faith, mighty faith, the promise sees, And looks to God alone; Laughs at impossibilities, And cries it shall be done.   Charles Wesley

I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.   C.S. Lewis

Few are they who by faith touch Him; multitudes are they who throng about Him.   Augustine

Seek not to understand that you may believe, but believe that you may understand.   Augustine

Faith is to believe what we do not see, and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe.   Augustine

In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadows to blind those who don’t.   Blaise Pascal

Faith never knows where it is being led, but it loves and knows the One who is leading.   Oswald Chambers

Many confuse understanding with believing.   Watchman Nee

See in the meantime that your faith brings forth obedience, and God in due time will cause it to bring forth peace.   John Owen

Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.   Martin Luther King Jr.

Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.   Corrie ten Boom

Man finds it hard to get what he wants, because he does not want the best; God finds it hard to give, because He would give the best, and man will not take it.   George Macdonald

If the Lord fails me at this time, it will be the first time.   George Mueller

I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.   C.S. Lewis (Mere Christianity)

The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.   Søren Kierkegaard

I am so weak that I can hardly write, I cannot read my Bible, I cannot even pray, I can only lie still in God’s arms like a little child, and trust.   Hudson Taylor

It is impossible for that man to despair who remembers that his Helper is omnipotent.   Jeremy Taylor

Reason is a whore, the greatest enemy that faith has.   Martin Luther
