8 Quotes about Faith in God from Elisabeth Elliot’s writings:

http://www.daringdaughters.org/elisabeth-elliot/

“Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them.”

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next.”

“God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us  to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

“Where does your security lie? Is God your refuge, your hiding place, your stronghold, your shepherd, your counselor, your friend, your redeemer, your Savior, your guide? If He is, you don’t need to search any further for security.”

“The life of faith is lived one day at a time, and it has to be lived — not always looked forward to as though the “real” living were around the next corner.”

“It is today for which are responsible. God still owns tomorrow.”

“Faith’s most severe tests come not when we see nothing, but when we see a stunning array of evidence that seems to prove our faith is vain.”

“God is God. Because He is God, He is worthy of my trust and obedience. I will find rest nowhere but in His holy will, a will that is unspeakably beyond my largest notions of what He is up to.”
