The Favored One - Part Sixteen.

 ​“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 #46: Faith is what I have for the things I don't have. (Hebrews 11:1; Matthew 6:32-33) 

Faith is the fuel of our spirit. Without faith, our spirit dies.

“Faith is the gaze of a soul upon a saving God.” – A. W. Tozer.

Faith is trusting God even when you don't understand His plan.

"Faith expects from God what is beyond all expectation." – Andrew Murray.

“A faith is a necessity to a MAN. Woe to him who believes in nothing.” – Victor Hugo.

The just shall live by faith. (Romans 1:17; Galatians 3:11; Hebrews 10:38; Habakkuk 2:4)

"If you have worry, you don't have faith. If you have faith, you don't have worry." – Jack Coe.

"Faith enables the believing soul to treat the future as present and the invisible as seen." – George Muller.

"Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe." - Augustine of Hippo.

“Faith is not believing in my own unshakable belief. Faith is believing an unshakable God when everything in me trembles and quakes.” – Beth Moore.

TFO Keynote #47: The technology for getting all our wants and needs met is seeking first, God, His kingdom, and Righteousness. (Matthew 6:33) 

"Habit 3: Put first things first."  Stephen Covey.

God's righteousness is our alignment with the original creation.

What does it mean to seek first God's kingdom and His righteousness?

"I suggest we get our priorities right—first things first" (English Idiom)

“Put first things first and we get second things thrown in; put second things first and we lose both first and second things.” — C. S. Lewis.

God's kingdom is the original state of all things. For all things were subject to him till sin was found. Sin is corruption. A deviation from the original creation.

“Putting first things first means organizing and executing around your most important priorities. It is living and being driven by the principles you value most, not by the agendas and forces surrounding you.”  Stephen Covey.

Important matters should be dealt with before other things. Stop allowing the seeming urgent to interrupt the important. Urgent is temporal. It is occasioned by the neglect of the important. Important is eternal. Let sense have the day.

The Saint.
