his soul to Jesus has found the clue to the maze!"
Modern unbelief is so short of the quality that it seized the label,
and has advertised itself as HONEST doubt. It was in dire need of
a character. We lift our feeble voice on behalf of HONEST FAITH.
PROFOUND THOUGHTS ON FAITH AND DOUBT
Now if self-reliance can make a man, how much more can God-reliance! This latter is more justifiable, more humble, more sure, more ennobling. Our own powers can only reach so far and no further: we are all tethered, and cannot go beyond our limit. But the divine power is unlimited and unchangeable, and therefore he who makes it his trust has a force at his back incomparably beyond all other. For all ends which he may wisely pursue he will have no need to calculate his strength: he may draw upon All-sufficiency. The Greatest Power must in all emergencies prove great enough for us. That power being immutable we may depend upon it as long as eternity endures. It is no small advantage to place our reliance where we may increase it from day to day without hazard of excessive confidence.
