    Faith only strengthens when tested, for it never detracts. Its sole function moves ever forward, never deviating in any other direction. When it is at rest it is only waiting on God, which further strengthens its substance (Luke 17:5). Thus, faith is ever seen to be the sole manifestation of God in its purpose of evincing His works through His vessels (Heb 11:1).

    Such is faith that derives from love (Gal 5:6), the love of God through those reborn connecting to others being brought unto rebirth. The growth by its Author (Heb 12:2) is observed most in difficulties and despondence (Jam 1:3), and faith’s possessor sees that it is not he that brings it along—but it bringing him!
