Don’t waste your quarantine. When this time ends (and it will end!), how will you have changed?
God’s work, Done God’s way, In God’s time, Will always have God’s reward.
Our God reigns. Even when it looks like he’s not ruling, he’s ruling. When chaos appears, he’s in charge of the chaos. When things start falling apart, he’s in charge of the falling apart of those things. The truth remains whether we believe it or not. Our God reigns.
“Love is not irritable” (1 Corinthians 13:5). Try to remember this. You’ll probably need it before the end of the day.
It is sometimes said that we should not doubt in the darkness what we learned in the light. It is equally true that we must not forget in the light what we learned in the darkness.
“Because He lives, I can face tomorrow Because He lives, all fear is gone Because I know He holds the future And life is worth the living, just because He lives”
Do not complain about circumstances. That changes nothing. Do not resent difficult people. That changes nothing. Do not moan about hard challenges. That changes nothing. Ask the Lord, “What do you want me to learn from this?” That changes you.
God answers the prayers we would pray if we knew what he knows.
“The soul that on Jesus hath lean’d for repose, I will not, I will not desert to his foes; That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake, I’ll never, no never, no never forsake.”
Believing in Christ means trusting him so much that if he can’t take me to heaven, I’m not going to go there. Friends, we don’t have a Plan B because we don’t need one. Jesus is all we need, now and for eternity.
“Bind my wandering heart to Thee.”
Plan for today: Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks. That’s always a good plan, but we need this now more than ever.
Faith is the only currency accepted in the Bank of Heaven.
Faith believes in advance what will only make sense in reverse. God doesn’t call us to understand. He asks us to believe–and leave the details with him. In due time, he will make all things clear, and we will say, “Jesus led me all the way.”
God keeps all his promises, including the ones we find hard to believe.
“The Lord has promised good to me; His Word my hope secures; He will my Shield and Portion be, As long as life endures.”
If we know Jesus, we ought to be the happiest, most positive, most optimistic, most encouraged, most forward-looking, most creative, most dynamic, most hope-filled people on the face of the earth. Maybe we should put a sign in front of our churches: “If you’re looking for hope, we’ve got plenty to spare!”
Lord Jesus, do whatever it takes to make us like you, and in the end we will be glad that you answered our prayer. Amen.
“Christianity was born in a world of totalitarianism. . . . it was not strange to be persecuted. What is strange historically, is that we are not.” John Piper
Upon a life I did not live, Upon a death I did not die, I stake my whole eternity.
Christians ought to be calmest people on earth because we know the Lord, and he holds the future in his hands.
Don’t say, “I can do all things.” Those are the words of a boaster. Don’t say, “I can do some things.” Those are the words of a doubter. But you should say, “I can do all things through Christ.” Those are the words of a believer.
If you dare to stand up for what you believe, you’ll end up like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. Nebuchadnezzar won’t like you very much. You’ll soon discover how hot the fiery furnace can be. But the good news is, Jesus is with you in the fiery furnace. That’s where he makes himself known.
Lord Jesus, thank you for bringing us into hard places so we can learn to trust you more. Amen.
You’ll never regret your decision to pick up your cross and follow Jesus.
