All Things Possible to Faith
Matthew 15:21-28
Then Jesus went there, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.…

As we " will," so faith obtains the good. "It can be done!" says faith. "It shall be done!" says the will. And it is done I The whole history of the world, in all its divisions, may be quoted in proof of this axiom. Space can be travelled by steam, says faith. Man has a will that it should be so. Space says, "Be it unto thee as thou wilt: "and it is done. The Atlantic Ocean can be crossed in seven days, says faith. The will of man says, It shall be so; and it is so. Thought can be conveyed as quickly a thousand miles as one. It is willed to be so, and it is done. The Alps can be tunnelled for a railway, says faith. I will it to be done. says the engineer; and the Alps say, "Be it unto thee even as thou wilt." Thus all things apparently impossible to reason become palpable facts to faith in its persistent exercises.

(J. Bate.)
