Faith: a fruit of the Spirit

Some think that faith comes from within, inside of you, but in Ephesians 2:8, Paul reminds us that faith “is the gift of God” and that it comes from God. It is not something we can muster up or dig down deep to find. It is the fruit of God in the life of His surrendered child. In God, this is called foreknowledge. In us, it is the assurance of His foreknowledge. In Him, this is omniscience. For the Christian, it is reliance upon His omniscience.
