True Faith in God | 105 True Faith Comes Only From Knowing God

God says, “No matter what kind of refinement you undergo in your experiences from God’s words, God requires mankind’s faith. This way, what is perfected are people’s faith and aspirations. You cannot touch or see it; it is under these circumstances that your faith is required. People’s faith is required for when something cannot be seen by the naked eye, and your faith is required for when you cannot let go of your own notions. When you are not clear on God’s work, what is required is your faith and that you take a firm stance and stand witness. … If you have lost hope in God, how will you be able to experience His work? Therefore, only when you have faith and you do not harbor doubts toward God, only when you have true faith in Him no matter what He does will He enlighten and illuminate you in your experiences, and only then will you be able to see His actions. These things are all achieved through faith, and faith is only achieved through refinement—faith cannot develop in the absence of refinement. What does faith refer to? Faith is the genuine belief and the sincere heart that humans should possess when they cannot see or touch something, when God’s work is not in line with human notions, when it is beyond human reach. This is the faith that I speak of. People are in need of faith during times of hardship and refinement, and along with faith comes refinement. These are inextricable. No matter how God works or what kind of environment you are in, if you are able to pursue life, seek to have God’s work carried out within you, and pursue the truth, and if you have an understanding of God’s actions and are able to act according to the truth, then this is your genuine faith and this shows that you have not lost hope in God. Only if you are still able to pursue the truth through refinement, you are able to truly love God and do not develop doubts of Him, if no matter what He does you still practice the truth to satisfy Him and you are able to deeply seek out His will and be considerate of His will, then this means you have true faith in God.” “When you face sufferings you must be able to not consider the flesh and not complain against God. When God hides Himself from you, you must be able to have the faith to follow Him, to maintain your previous love without allowing it to falter or disappear. No matter what God does, you must submit to His design, and be more willing to curse your own flesh than to complain against Him. When you are faced with trials you must satisfy God in spite of any reluctance to part with something you love, or bitter weeping. Only this can be called true love and faith.”
True faith is the faith in God that we should have when God’s work doesn’t match our conceptions. When we are faced with afflictions or adversities, we don’t lose faith in God or complain against God and are able to follow God as always. Even if we cannot see God’s actions after praying, we still completely believe in His work and words without any doubts, and we seek His will with a heart of obedience to God. This is true faith. It is revealed in trials and refinements. For example, when trials befell Job, he still prayed to and praised God and maintained his faith in Him, no matter what God did. Therefore, in the end, he received God’s approval and blessings. His experiences give us the right direction: No matter what hardships or setbacks we meet with in our life, no matter what misfortunes befall our family, we must not deny God’s name and must have true faith in God’s sovereignty and omnipotence just like Job, and we are still able to pray to God and rely on God to face those adversities with obedience. At this point, we will have achieved true faith in God and gained more knowledge of Him.

True Faith in God | 105 True Faith Comes Only From Knowing God

Verse 1

God’s work now is to speak, no more signs, nor wonders.

It’s not the Age of Grace. God is normal and real.

In the last days He’s not the supernatural Jesus,

but a practical God in flesh, no different from man.

Chorus

So man’s belief in God

is because of His many works, words and deeds.

Yes, it is God’s utterance that conquers and perfects man.

Signs and wonders aren’t the root of their faith.

Yes, it’s God’s deeds that make man know Him.

Verse 2

In every age God reveals different dispositions,

a different part of His deeds.

But they all, still give a deeper knowledge of Him,

a more down-to-earth and true belief in God.

Chorus

So man’s belief in God

is because of His many works, words and deeds.

Yes, it is God’s utterance that conquers and perfects man.

Signs and wonders aren’t the root of their faith.

Yes, it’s God’s deeds that make man know Him.

Bridge

Comprehend His reality, understand His disposition

only by knowing His actual deeds,

how He works and speaks,

employs His wisdom, makes people perfect ones.

Comprehend how He works upon man,

understand His likes and dislikes.

This can help differentiate right from wrong,

and through this knowledge of God there’s progress in your life.

Chorus

So man’s belief in God

is because of His many works, words and deeds.

Yes, it is God’s utterance that conquers and perfects man.

Signs and wonders aren’t the root of their faith.

Yes, it’s God’s deeds that make man know Him.
