The Knowledge Of Faith

“The power of God infinitely transcends all our feelings or experiences of it. Faith needs to be absorbed with the power itself and not merely with the effects of it. The knowledge faith conveys to the soul is all too little realized. Saving faith enables its possessor to conceive of things which are incomprehensible to mere human reason, imparting a knowledge to which scientists and philosophers are strangers.

“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God” (Hebrews 11:3).

Faith gives a subsistence in the mind to the things hoped for and makes real things unseen. Faith engages the heart with objects which lie far beyond the reach of any natural sense, for example, the future resurrection of our bodies. Faith knows what reason cannot grasp and that with which feelings have nothing to do. Man wants to know before he will believe, but faith has to be exercised before the things of God can be known: “which believe and know the truth” (1 Timothy 4:3). It is not that we are assured and therefore believe, but “we believe and are sure” (John 6:69). If we would experience more of God’s power, we must know more about it through the exercise of faith upon it.

“If thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God” (John 11:40)

— that is His unchanging order.” —A. W. Pink (1886–1952)

Taken from “Gleanings from Paul” by A. W. Pink (1886-1952)
