The Bible speaks of different kinds of faith. There is true faith and false faith; saving faith and temporary faith; great faith and little faith. Today’s devotional speaks about one characteristic of little faith. Read it and check yourself out. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
“…Little faith is far too eager for signs. I do not think that Peter’s faith became suddenly little: it was always little, and the sight of the boisterous wind made its littleness apparent. When he said, ‘Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water,’ his faith was weak. Why did he want to walk on the water? Why did he seek such a wonder? It was because his faith was little. Strong faith is content without signs, without tokens, without marvels. It believes God’s bare word, and asks for no confirming miracle; its trust in Christ is such that it asks for no sign in the heavens above, or in the seas beneath. Little faith, with her ‘If it be thou,’ must have signs and wonders, or she yields to doubt. Joyful meditations, remarkable dreams, singular providences, choice answers to prayer, special fellowships — little faith must be having something out of the common, or she collapses.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XIV, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1890), p. 614-615]
