From the Secret of Adoration:
#7 To Faith, God reveals Himself
by Andrew Murray
As the eye is the organ by which we see the light and rejoice in it, so faith is the power by which we see the light of God and walk in it.
Man was made for God, to seek Him, to find Him, to grow up into His likeness and to show forth His glory—in the fullest sense, to be His dwelling.
And faith is the eye which, turning away from the world and self, looks up to God and in His light sees light. To faith God reveals himself.
How often we toil and try to awaken thoughts and feelings concerning God, but forget to gaze on the incomparable Original. Could we but realize that in the depth of our soul God reveals Himself. And there, as we wait and worship before Him, He will in very deed let His light shine into our hearts.
Let our one desire be to take time and be still before God, believing with an unbounded faith in His longing to make Himself known to us.
Let us feed on God’s Word to make us strong in faith.
Let that faith have large thoughts of what God’s glory is; of what his power is; of what His longing love is to get complete possession of us.
Such faith exercised and strengthened day by day in secret fellowship with God will become a habit of our life, keeping us ever in the enjoyment of His presence and the experience of His saving power.
Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations . . . being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised (Romans 4:18, 21).
For I have faith in God that it will happen just as He told me (Acts 27:25).
Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord (Psalm 27:14).
