I came across this quote from an old charismatic evangelist:

We must remember that faith is not feelings, it is not sight. You do not exercise faith after the answer has come. It is then sight. You only exercise faith when you don’t see anything, when you don’t feel anything. When to the natural senses there isn’t anything. Yet faith rests on something more solid than all that can be seen – the integrity of God’s promise to the believer, His faithfulness to fulfill his word.
