“a faith tested and true”

Oswald Chambers asserted that our life of faith is not based in “understanding and reason” but “in the degree of separation” that it has from the natural life. As he concluded: “Living a life of faith means never knowing where you are being led. But it does mean loving and knowing the One who is leading. … A life of faith is not a life of one glorious mountaintop experience after another, like soaring on eagles’ wings, but is a life of day-in and day-out consistency; a life of walking without fainting (see Isa. 40-31). It is not even a question of the holiness of sanctification, but of something which comes much farther down the road. It is a faith that has been tried and proved and has withstood the test. Abraham is not a type of an example of the holiness of sanctification, but a type of life of faith—a faith, tested and true, built on the true God. “Abraham believed God…” (Rom. 4:3). (My Utmost For His Highest, March 19)
