Trust is faith that has become absolute, approved, and accomplished. When all is said and done, there is a sort of risk in faith and its exercise. But trust is firm belief; it is faith in full bloom. Trust is a conscious act, a fact of which we are aware.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The dangers of life are infinite, and among them is safety.
Faith is the willingness to risk anything on God.
Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome.
Doubts are suppressed by groups… But remember that the internal incentives that shape how the group perceives risks and rewards may be very different from the reality of the risks and rewards in the external marketplace. Those incentives can distort risk perception.
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature.
If he have faith, the believer cannot be restrained. He betrays himself. He breaks out. He confesses and teaches this gospel to the people at the risk of life itself.
The risk of a wrong decision is preferable to the terror of indecision.
If we walk away from risk to keep ourselves safe, we will waste our lives.
When people cast fear to the wind and spend themselves and risk their lives and fortune in the cause of God’s truth, and in love for other people, then God is revealed for who He really is: infinitely valuable and satisfying–so much so that His people don’t need the fleeting pleasures of sin in order to be content.
If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.
Do one thing every day that scares you.
Unless there is an element of risk in our exploits for God, there is no need for faith.
Vincent Van Gogh
What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?
