"My dearest child, FAITH is not in itself a meritorious act; the merit is in Me to Whom it should be directed.
Faith is a redirecting of your sight, a getting out of your own focus and instead getting Me into focus. Sin has twisted your vision inward and made it self-regarding.
Unbelief puts YOU where I should be, and is perilously close to the sin of Lucifer who 'I will set my throne above the throne of God.'
Faith looks OUT instead of IN and once that happens, your whole life falls wonderfully into line."
