Faith is Taking God at His Word – DL Moody

Faith is taking God at His word. Those who want some sign are always getting into trouble. We want to come to this: God says it – let us believe it.

The Holy Spirit Coming Upon DL Moody

[Speaking of the Holy Spirit coming upon him]

I went to preaching again. The sermons were not different; I did not present any new truths, and yet hundreds were converted. I would not now be placed back where I was before that blessed experience if you should give me all the world—it would be as dust in the balance.

DL Moody and Evangelism

One day a lady criticized DL Moody for his methods of evangelism in attempting to win people to the Lord. Moody’s reply was “I agree with you. I don’t like the way I do it either. Tell me, how do you do it?” The lady replied, “I don’t do it.” Moody responded, “I like my way of doing it better than your way of not doing it.”

Faith is to take God at His Word – DL Moody

Some say that faith is the gift of God. So is the air, but you have to breathe it; so is bread, but you have to eat it. Some are wanting some miraculous kind of feeling. That is not faith. “Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God” (Rom. 10:17). That is whence faith comes. It is not for me to sit down and wait for faith to come stealing over me with a strong sensation, but is for me to take God at His Word.
