The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? 
The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
  Psalm 27:1

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. 
In this world you will have trouble. 
But take heart! I have overcome the world. 
John 16:33

Original Artwork Light of the Valley by Jeffrey Bedrick

There are three things which form faith in the case of a person: the first is to approach the Lord, the second is to learn truths from the Word, the third is to live by them. Saving faith arises when the three are joined together.

It needs to be added that worldly affairs prevent people from acquiring more than a few truths to make up faith. Still, if anyone approaches the Lord and worships Him alone, he is enabled to get to know all truths. As soon, therefore, as every true worshipper of the Lord hears some truth of faith previously unknown to him, he immediately sees, acknowledges and accepts it. The reason is that the Lord is in him, and he is in the Lord. Consequently the light of truth is in him, and he is in the light of truth, for the Lord is light itself and truth itself.
