He talks about the purifying power of living by faith in future grace and describes it this way:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do, and he will
direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
The call to live by faith is in the words, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart."
The reference to future grace is in the words, "He will direct your paths."
This is also seen in two lines of the song, "Amazing Grace."
The first line: "Tis grace has brought me safe thus far."
The second line: "And grace will lead me home."
Looking to the past we see how He has led us by his grace. This gives us faith in the future to know that His grace will lead us on.
