I've done a lot of worshipping lately to the song What Faith Can Do by Kutlass.
Although I wish the lyrics were a bit less ambiguous.
It is not 'faith' in and of itself that
heals broken hearts
It is God!
Recently I was reading Ephesians about the armor of God, and I was struck by verse 16::
"take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. "
And I saw, quite clearly, the guy behind all of it, his bow up, arm drawn back.
His flaming arrows whizzing toward our souls.
Puts things in a sinister light, doesn't it?
How inexpressibly grateful I am that God not only demands that I trust him, but gives me the ability to do so.
Provides the faith I need to cling to Him when the arrows are falling all around me!
Praise God for being our refuge!
