For the most part we live upon successes, not promises: unless we see and feel the print of victories, we will not believe.

If I trust in Christ, I believe in the wisdom of His commands as well as in the sincerity of His promises. God does not command me to believe in this or that promise of Christ. No, He tells me I must believe in the Lord Jesus Himself.
