"For I know whom I have believed...." 2 Timothy 1:12

Last month we looked at unbelief--that dangerous pride in man that denies God or His power to accomplish what He states in His word. Basilea Schlink says this from her book "You'll Never Be the Same"...

"The first "MUST" in fighting unbelief and discouragement is to pay homage to the truth and admit that we ourselves are at fault if we do not experience God's love and help. For unbelief breaks our association with God and erects a barrier against Him, which prevents His stream of love and help from flowing towards us.... We have to let God show us the deepest reason for our unbelief and pride. Our next goal of faith, in order to conquer unbelief and discouragement, must be to admit before God and man that pride makes us blind to the Father's love. Only the humble will have their eyes opened to see God the Father in His infinite love. The humble will receive help."
