You can blame circumstances, but backsliding always begins in the heart.
Always, everywhere God is present, and always He seeks to discover Himself to each one
To know that God thinks about me is the beginning of my journey of faith.
Whatever keeps me from my Bible is my enemy, however harmless it may appear to be.
When I understand that everything happening to me is to make me more Christlike, it resolves a great deal of anxiety.
Complacency is a deadly foe of all spiritual growth. Acute desire must be present or there will be no manifestation of Christ to His people. He waits to be wanted. Too bad that with many of us He waits so long, so very long, in vain.
The essence of surrender is getting out of God’s way so that He can do in us what He also wants to do through us.
God may allow His servant to succeed when He has disciplined him to a point where he does not need to succeed to be happy. The man who is elated by success and is cast down by failure is still a carnal man. At best his fruit will have a worm in it.
Be hard on yourself and easy on others. Carry your own cross but never lay one on the back of another
The best preparation for worship is not a rehearsal, but surrender.
Perception of ideas, rather than the storing of them, should be the aim of education.
I think that most Christians would be better pleased if the Lord did not inquire into their personal affairs too closely. They want Him to save them, to keep them happy, and to take them off to heaven at last, but not to be too inquisitive about their conduct or services.
