Devotion of the Day

What Kind of Faith?

According to your faith be it unto you.
Matthew 9:29

“Do I have the right kind of faith?” Dr. Biederwolf used to say, “If you have any faith at all, you may be sure it is the right kind.” Do not waste time taking your faith apart and putting it back together. Do not expect saving faith to be some strange, different kind. You believe in Christ with faith like the faith you use when you trust someone or something else. It is the object that makes the difference.

If you have any uncertainty about the matter, come to a definite decision. Trust Christ now. It may help you to put down the time and place. You must have confidence in the decision and consider it settled. But do not confuse faith in your faith with faith in the Saviour. Faith has no value of its own, it has value only as it connects us with Him.

It is a trick of Satan to get us occupied with examining our faith instead of resting in the Faithful One. Go to Him just as you are as best you know. Him that cometh He will not cast out.
