Faith Staggers Not

"Faith staggers not: it is the voice of God, and must therefore be received and honored. Hard things and wonderful things were proclaimed to Noah; yet did he believe the future unseen things proclaimed, and ‘moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house’ (Hebrews 11:7). Hard things and wonderful things were proclaimed to Abraham; and yet how sublimely did his faith master the difficulty! ‘He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God’ (Romans 4:20).
