A man’s faith in himself wavers because he knows his foibles and limitations, his fears and doubts. A man’s faith in God may also waver, but not because of any deficiency in the Creator. The more one studies God, the more one’s faith grows.

The Lord Jesus urges us to look to God’s works as a builder of faith. “But if God so clothes the grass, which is alive in the field today, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith!” (Luke 12:28 NET).

To answer his doubts and fears that God “might become inactive,” Asaph wrote,

I will remember the works of the LORD.
Yes, I will remember the amazing things you did long ago!
I will think about all you have done;
I will reflect upon your deeds!”
O God, your deeds are extraordinary!
What god can compare to our great God?
(Psalm 77:11-13 NET).

To remember the works of God is to find faith.
