The Favored One - Part Fourteen.

 ​“So Daniel said to the steward whom the chief of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, “Please test your servants for ten days, and let them give us vegetables to eat and water to drink. Then let our appearance be examined before you, and the appearance of the young men who eat the portion of the king’s delicacies; and as you see fit, so deal with your servants.”” ― Daniel 1:11-13, NKJV. 

TFO Keynote #40: God is in the quietness of faith, not the worry, the noise, the earthquake, and the fire. We need to each find our rest in the quietness of faith. Our power is not in ourselves. It is in God. (1 Kings 19:11-13; Psalm 46:10-11; Isaiah 30:15) 

Big things come in small packages. (Numbers 13:33; 14:6-9)

“I believe God is managing affairs and that He doesn’t need any advice from me. With God in charge, I believe everything will work out for the best in the end. So what is there to worry about.” – Henry Ford.

TFO Keynote #41: Worry is a result of a lack of faith. It is the result of an inability to think, reason, and remember. (Matthew 6:25-31) 

Worry is a lack of hope. (Proverbs 12:25)

Worry is primarily based on fear and uncertainty.

Worry does not benefit us physically, mentally, or spiritually. 

Worrying is a waste of valuable time and accomplishes nothing!

All worry does is steal your joy and keep you busy doing nothing.

“Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow.” – Swedish Proverb.

Worry comes from thinking we might lose something important to us. 

"Worry is interest paid on trouble before it comes due." – William Ralph Inge.

Worry is a lack of faith. It is the concern, or belief that something we do not want will happen.

Worry is the false belief that everything depends on you – what you do, or not do. It is taking responsibility for the things that are outside your control.

TFO Keynote #42: If you cannot think, you cannot have faith. Faith requires knowledge. It requires a basis. (Matthew 6:25-31) 

Belief without a basis is a presumption. (Numbers 14:44; Romans 12:3)

Faith demands our ability to think. (Hebrews 11:3; Matthew 16:5-12)

There is no faith without knowledge. (Romans 1:18-21)

Knowledge is the foundation for faith. (Romans 1:18-21)

If we are to have faith, we must have knowledge. (Romans 1:18-21)

The Saint.
