Evidence

From my summer reading:

Faith’s most severe tests come not when we see nothing, but when we see a stunning array of evidence that seems to prove our faith in vain.

from the book “These Strange Ashes”, by Elisabeth Elliot

 

So good to be reminded that in spite of those “stunning arrays of evidence” that Satan loves to parade out in front of us, things are not always what they appear to be!

Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, and the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, and there be no herd in the stalls– Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. Habakkuk 3:17-18

Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.       Psalm 46: 2-3

And He said unto them, “Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?” Then He arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. Matthew 8:26
