The link that binds us to God is faith. The larger the God we know, the larger will be our faith. The secret of power in our lives is to know God and expect great things from Him. “With God all things are possible,” and “All things are possible to him that believeth.” The difference between faith and works is just this: In the case of faith, God does it; in the case of works, we try to do it ourselves; and the difference is measured simply by the distance between the infinite and the finite, the Almighty God and a helpless worm.
