Faith Defies Senses And Human Reason

I read this morning an excellent commentary from Chapter 2 Section 4 of “Abandonment To Divine Providence” ( http://www.ccel.org/ccel/decaussade/abandonment.ii_1.i.ii.iv.html ….just click the website with your pointer) on how the eye of faith should dominate our every moment.

Of course, our physical senses, reasoning and human logic serve and help us quite well  in basic human living. But when it comes to the workings and hidden mysteries of God and Christ Jesus in our daily lives we can toss them out the window. Faith by means of the Holy Spirit is to be our ONLY standard for gauging what is happening.

The author of this book writes in another Section that “The life of faith is a continual struggle against the senses.”

Take care, in Him.
