Hunger for His Word

A kind of omnipotence in it!

Faith is an appropriating grace.

Faith looks upon God, and says with David,
“This God is my God forever and ever!
He shall be my guide unto the death!”

Faith looks upon Christ, and says with the spouse,
“I am my Beloved’s–and my Beloved is mine!”

Faith looks upon an immortal crown, and says
“Henceforth is laid up for me a crown of glory.”

Faith looks upon the righteousness of Christ,
and says, “This righteousness is mine to cover me.”

Faith looks upon the mercy of Christ, and
says, “This mercy is mine to pardon me.”

Faith looks upon the power of Christ, and
says, “This power is mine to support me.”

Faith looks upon the wisdom of Christ, and
says, “This wisdom is mine to direct me.”

Faith looks upon the blood of Christ, and
says, “This blood is mine to save me.”

Faith has a kind of omnipotence in it;
it is able to do all things.

(Thomas Brooks, “Heaven on Earth” 1667)
