If we cannot do what we plan to do for the glory of God, if we cannot give thanks for it, if we cannot do it in His name, if we would not feel right in praying about it, then we should not do it.

I myself, for instance, am not especially gifted, and am shy by nature, but my gracious and merciful God and Father inclined Himself to me, and when I was weak in faith He strengthened me while I was still young. He taught me in my helplessness to rest on Him, and to pray even about little things in which another might have felt able to help himself.

True peace is when the soul revolves around its center, Almighty God, craving for nothing but what God continually supplies. Since the soul is large enough to contain the infinite God, nothing less than Himself can satisfy or fill it.

There is too much today of the big showy things. Let us remember that God does not overlook the ministry of the little things.

Troubles teach us trust. There is no way of learning faith except by trial. It is God's school of faith, and it is far better for us to learn to trust God than to escape trials. The lesson of faith, once learned, is an everlasting acquisition and an eternal fortune made. Without trust even riches will leave us poor.

Walking by faith involves actually believing the truth that God says about us: namely, that He so loved us that He gave His only son to die for our sins so that we won't perish but have everlasting life. We are far too inclined to believe the lies whispered in our ears by the devil who actually hates us.

If Jesus is to be at the center of our being, and our relationship with the Father is the most important thing in all the world, then why is it that we have such a hard time getting quiet before Him and listening for His voice?

Sometimes it seems that life keeps throwing us "curve balls." We make our plans and prepare the best we can for what may come in the future, but then get stopped dead in our tracks. Have we forgotten? "But I trust in you, O Lord; I say, 'You are my God.' My times are in your hand;" (Psalm 31:14-15a ESV)

It's so easy for us to become irritated whenever someone steps on our "rights." Our stomachs begin to churn, our blood pressure rises, and our general mindset is one of total focus on the perpetrator of the "wrong" done to us! But then …the Spirit moves our thoughts to the Son of God who "did not regard equality with God as a thing to be grasped …but …emptied himself…." Then we feel ashamed for our unloving attitudes towards those who did this wrong to us and we repent of those feelings. And …that's a good thing!

We don't need to fear the cataclysmic events of the world around us as much as we need to fear the withering which takes place when our life is not in the place of constant renewal. We don't need to seek so much for the latest "move of God" as we do to be in contact with His Holy Creative Presence.

Don't waste your time waiting and longing for large opportunitis which may never come. But faithfully handle the little things that are always claiming your attention.

If you don't feel that you're hearing from God like you once used to, you need to go back to that last thing that He asked you to do but which you've refrained from doing. You may not be able to do it now, but you need to confess and repent of your disobedience and be willing to do that thing should He give you the opportunity to do so.

Oswald Chambers

To choose to suffer means that there is something wrong; to choose God's Will even if it means suffering is a very different thing. No healthy saint ever chooses suffering; he chooses God's will, as Jesus did, whether it means suffering or not.

The only remedy for human nature is to destroy it and receive instead the divine nature. God does not improve man. He crucifies the natural life with Christ and creates the new man in Christ Jesus.

Even if your situation seems hopeless, God is still worthy of all your praise. God delights in a heart that will praise Him no matter what the bankbook says, our family says, our time schedule says, or any other circumstance that would try to exalt itself against the knowledge of God.
