wrapping my hands around faith

by Bernie Webb

  • “Faith is grounded in Christ Jesus … PERIOD.
  • Faith flourishes and lives in our love relationship with Jesus, the brethren and world around us.
  • Faith declares that my hope is IN God and His plans, purpose and will … not my own
  • Faith says ‘God is able’ and ‘I am not’
  • Faith is based on God’s ability, character and promises … it is not based on always getting ‘our’ way … in fact, getting ‘His’ way and wanting it to be ‘our’ way is the objective
  • Faith confesses ‘God’s will, not mine, be done’.
  • Faith exercised is how we please God … confirming our belief, declaring our trust and exercising our passion to draw near to Him.
  • Faith grows according to the hand of God in the midst of all our circumstances and relationships … before taking any credit for endurance or steadfastness, remember Jesus is the author and perfecter of faith.
  • Faith, in small doses like a mustard seed, unleashes the great power of both the heavenly and abiding presence of God … Father, Son and Holy Spirit … IN and THRU our lives and the lives of those surrounding us … to do the impossible … ALL for the glory of God.”

Unbelief and Faith

“Unbelief puts our circumstances between us and God. Faith puts God between us and our circumstances.”  F. B. Meyer

From Wikipedia on F. B. Meyer

Frederick Brotherton Meyer (8 April 1847 – 28 March 1929), a contemporary and friend of D. L. Moody and A. C. Dixon, was a Baptist pastor and evangelist in England involved in ministry and inner city mission work on both sides of the Atlantic. Author of numerous religious books and articles, many of which remain in print today, he was described in an obituary as The Archbishop of the Free Churches.

Frederick Meyer was born in London. He attended Brighton College and graduated from the University of London in 1869. He studied theology at Regent’s Park College.

F. B. Meyer was part of the Higher Life movement and preached often at the Keswick Convention. He was known as a crusader against immorality. He preached against drunkenness and prostitution. He is said to have brought about the closing of hundreds of saloons and brothels.

While in York in the early 1870s F. B. Meyer met the American evangelist Dwight L. Moody, whom he introduced to other chapels, churches, and ministers in England, and by exchange was invited to make several trips to minister in America. The two preachers became lifelong friends.

F. B. Meyer wrote over 75 books, including Christian biographies and devotional commentaries on the Bible. In 1918, Meyer, along with seven other clergymen, was also a signatory to the London Manifesto asserting that the Second Coming was imminent.

An illustrated biography of his life was published in 1929, with a new edition a few years later. 2007 saw the release of a new biography of Meyer, F.B. Meyer: If I had a hundred lives, written by Professor Bob Holman and published by Christian Focus publications.

      Thank you for introducing me to Major Thomas!! Like you, his writing is having a profound effect on my Christian thinking and behavior. Spreading his message is indeed a good thing!! Jim D.


  7. Opal Jones says:

    What do I need to allow the Lord to be in my life? I need for the Lord to own all of me, to be absolute ruler over in life.


    • jimdavenport says:

      Opal, you are right on! The Lord owning every part of the Christian is required for God to be able to work through them. If we are doing whatever we do of our own strength, we are not letting God own us, see through our eyes, help through our hands, walk with our feet, speak with our voice, love others with His heart. The book I mentioned in the quote footnote does a wonderful job in teaching one how to fully turn over their life to the Lord allowing Him to be IN you and work through you. Blessings, Jim D.
