The question, “Where is your faith,” is not an idle one. Some people
have faith in faith. Some, as today’s attached devotional warns, have
faith in the goodness of their cause. But our faith should be in God
alone. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Proverbs 3:5-6 (ESV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
PRAYER AND WORK
“Said one, one day: ‘My cause is good,
The Lord will prosper it.’
Said Luther: ‘Take it to Him, then;
That were provision fit.’
Trust in the Lord, not in thy cause,
However good it be;
Take it forthwith in faithful hands
And lay it on His knee.
The best of causes go amiss;
The Lord will never fail;
Commit thy ways into his care,
And then ¾ shake out thy sail.”
