"A giant in the faith"


Dear friends:

The late Smith Wigglesworth was a giant in the faith who repeatedly witnessed God’s miracle-working power, even raising from the dead.  Here are some of his words, so profound that I must put them in bold:
“There is something about believing God that will cause Him to pass over a million people to get to you because of your faith.”
 What Wigglesworth said is scriptural, because the Bible says:
"For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him" (2 Chronicles 16:9, NKJV).
 Faith and loyalty are two sides of the same coin.  You cannot have loyalty without faith, and faith without loyalty is dead.
 
Imagine the great Creator of the universe constantly scanning the human race and the world looking for the person of faith.  Then He sees you!  Out of the sea of humanity, your faith beams upward toward heaven like a laser light, and you catch His eye.  He smiles.  He listens to and heeds your words, because you are praying, speaking, and acting according to His own words, to which He is faithful, which you believe, and to which you are loyal.  God will not deny His own words and promises.
