Your faith grows strong with earnest conflict with fear and doubt
Excerpt from Testimonies for the Church Volume 8, Issue 36
By Ellen Gould Harmon White
Have faith in God. He is working out His will doing all things well in behalf of His people. The strength of those who love and serve Him will be renewed day by day. His understanding will be placed at their service that they may not err in the carrying out of His purposes.
There is to be no despondency in God's service. Our faith is to endure the pressure brought to bear upon it. God is able and willing to bestow upon His servants all the strength they need. He will more than fulfill the highest expectations of those who put their trust in Him. He will give them the wisdom that their varied necessities demand.
Said the tried apostle Paul: "He said unto me My grace is sufficient for thee for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities in reproaches in necessities in persecutions in distresses for Christ's sake; for when I am weak then am I strong." 2 Cor 12:9, 10
O my brethren hold the beginning of your confidence firm unto the end. The light of God's truth is not to be dimmed It is to shine amidst the darkness of error that enshrouds our world. The word of God is to be opened to those in the high places of the earth, as well as to those in the more lowly.
