The Favored One - Part Nineteen.

 ​“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 #53: Faith is shown in a devoted WALK with God. (Genesis 5:24; Luke 10:42)

“The great problem in contemporary Christian living is not learning the right things to do but how to do the right things.” — John Piper.

“Walking by the Spirit is what we do when the desires produced by the Spirit are stronger than the desires produced by the flesh.” — John Piper.

TFO Keynote #54: Faith is what qualifies us for God's approval. It is what causes us to please God. (Hebrews 11:5)

“Faith involves a commitment “to believe in a God,” “to believe God,” and “to believe in God.”” — Anonymous.

“Faith is to believe what you do not yet see; the reward for this faith is to see what you believe.” — St. Augustine of Hippo.

"The approval of God is not earned but received. It does not come to you on the basis of merit, but on the basis of mercy." — Colin Smith.

TFO Keynote #55: Faith is the belief that God is in the very present moment; and that He is a rewarder. It is not about doing good. It is about doing God. (Hebrews 11:6; 13:5; Romans 12:1)

TFO Keynote #56: Faith is having godly fear. Having godly fear is faith. It is magnifying God in our hearts and being. (Hebrews 11:7)

To fear God is to take refuge in Him – to draw close to Him.

Fearing the Lord is to appreciate His character. [Proverbs 2:1-5]

Fear of God refers to a sense of awe, and submission to Him.

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” — Proverbs 9:10.

“Unlike worldly fear that creates alarm and anxiety, godly fear is a source of peace, assurance, and confidence.” — Elder David Bednar.

Working out our salvation with fear and trembling implies a heightened sense of reverence for God by living our lives in ways that testify to the fact that we are saved. [Philippians 2:12]

Fearing the Lord means to be in reverent awe of His holiness, to give Him complete reverence, and to honor Him as the God of great glory, majesty, purity, and power. [Exodus 19:16, 20:18-19; Deuteronomy 5:22-27; Psalm 33:8-9]

The Saint.
