Faith in the Lord is trust in the Lord.
We cannot have true faith in the Lord
without also having complete trust
in the Lord’s will
and in the Lord’s timing.
As a result,
no matter how strong our faith is,
it cannot produce a result contrary
to the will of Him in whom we have faith.
Remember that when your prayers
do not seem to be answered
in the way
or at the time
The exercise of faith
in the Lord Jesus Christ
is always subject to the order of heaven,
to the goodness
and timing of the Lord.
When we have that kind
in the Lord,
we have true security and serenity in our lives.
