Not Just Mental Assent by Pastor Melissa Scott

We cannot say this enough times: faith is not just mental assent.

In the Bible, faith goes beyond belief. Faith goes beyond confidence, which is the response of the emotions to what the mind has agreed to.

You do not have faith until you hang your body on what the mind has agreed to; and you do not have the faith that God responds to until you have hung your body on the belief that, when God says something, He is going to do it. The God we serve spoke, and His Word created the worlds that we see from nothing. So if you are going to hang your body on what you see and are going to be dominated by that, you have not come to know God’s ways, for He wants men who will take Him at His Word no matter what they see.
