We are all only one stupid decision away from destroying our legacy.
Loving Father, teach us to trust you. We want clear direction, and you say, “Give me your heart.” We want precise answers, and you say, “Trust me to do right.” We want to know about tomorrow, and you say, “Follow me today.” Lord, make us willing to be made willing to do your will in […]
Circumstances are the fingerprints of God.
“It is therefore far better, and more desirable, to have but a little of the world and to have it with a good conscience, to keep up communion with God, and enjoy him in it, and live by faith, than to have the greatest plenty and live without God in the world.” Matthew Henry
“Do your best and let God do the rest.” Dr. Ben Carson
“Sometimes God allows what he hates to accomplish what he loves.” Joni Eareckson Tada
Resentment is like drinking poison and hoping the other guy dies.
“Don’t pray ‘Lord, use me.’ What you should pray is “Lord, make me usable.'” Vance Havner
God specializes in impossible situations, and he loves to prove that hopeless cases aren’t hopeless after all.
Your prayers are part of heaven’s plan to reach out to the prodigals in your life and bring them back to God. If you are heavily burdened for a loved one, you may be sure that that burden does not come simply from yourself. The burden is a gift from God, a token of his […]
“No man can give at once the impression that he himself is clever and that Jesus Christ is mighty to save.” James Denney
God never wastes anything. Not even the tiniest tear falls without a purpose.
“If you are not content with what you have, you would not be satisfied if it were doubled.” Charles Spurgeon
“A real Christian is the one who can give his pet parrot to the town gossip.” Billy Graham
If you want a new life, you can have one, but you’ve got to let go of everything that stands between you and Jesus Christ.
He’s not the God we think he is. He’s much better than that.
Truth demands a personal commitment. You can talk about it, discuss it, debate it, and dissect it, but eventually you’ve got to do something about it.
God will never contradict his Word.
“Believing in Jesus means trusting him so much that if he can’t taken me to heaven, I’m not going to go there.” Lewis Sperry Chafer
“All I have needed Thy hand hath provided— ‘Great is Thy faithfulness,’ Lord, unto me!” Thomas Chisholm
It is altogether good for a man to remember that he is a sinner. A healthy sense of our own sin is a positive thing. It is a mark of wisdom. If I know that I am a sinner, I am driven to my knees in repentance and forced to run to the cross of […]
“All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small, All things wise and wonderful: The Lord God made them all.” “He gave us eyes to see them, And lips that we might tell How great is God Almighty, Who has made all things well.” Cecil F. Alexander, 1848
“In the final analysis there are no great preachers. There’s only a great Christ who does startling things when we place ourselves and our preaching in his hands.” Haddon Robinson
“Souls are perishing. Sailor, wilt thou sleep when the wreck is out at sea, and the lifeboat is waiting for hands to man it?” Charles Spurgeon
