The remarkable thing is, we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.

God usually meets us at our level of expectancy. That's why, in many ways, your expectations will set the boundaries for your life. Jesus said, 'According to your faith... be it done to you.' One translation puts it simply, 'Become what you believe.' So. . .what do you really believe?

In spite of his failures and falls, I believe David's secret lay in the fact that he understood God, who 'searcheth all hearts' and his heart's cry was, 'My heart is fixed. Oh! God, my heart is fixed.' In an old phrase David 'knew his heart's home.'

The sun is able to melt the ice that lies in the coldest part of the earth by just giving it's sunbeams enough time to penetrate the cold caused by darkness and distance. And just so, the Son is able to bring warmth to melt the coldest of hearts as His Sonbeams of love shine through the lives and testimonies of His chosen beams of light on this earth. Keep being a Sonbeam for Jesus.

Fear fails to take into account that God is able to hold back the forces of evil. God's hand is not shortened that it cannot save. He has the power to deliver.

Psalm 37:4 says, "Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart." It is commonplace to understand this verse to mean that God wants to fulfill our desires. Not so. David is saying that if our delight is in the Lord then He will transform our desires so that they will actually reflect His desires. He will enable us to want what He wants. He will then satisfy those wants.

The two deepest secrets of rest are to be in harmony with the will of God and to trust.

God's real people have always been called fanatics.

Missionary zeal does not grow out of intellectual beliefs, nor out of theological arguments, but out of love. If I do not love a person I am not moved to help him by proofs that he is in need; if I do love him, I wait for no proof of a special need to urge me to help him.

Those who lived prior to the coming of Christ lived by faith, clinging to promises the fulfillment of which they did not see in their lifetime. Only from a distance did they see and welcome them. If they could cling to the shadow, why cannot we embrace the reality?

No one has a sweeter or higher ministry for Christ than men and women at their regular occupations who can carry the light of heaven in their faces all day long.

As the rivers which flow from the sea—run back again into the sea; so those blessings which come from God—must always be employed for God. What I have received from him in his mercy, must be returned in glorifying him; therefore, Lord, whatever I enjoy—let me find you in it, and serve you with it.

Oh, the deep, unending sadness for what might have been! God never again opens the doors that have been closed. He opens other doors, but He reminds us that there are doors which we have shut– doors which had no need to be shut. Never be afraid when God brings back your past. Let your memory have its way with you. It is a minister of God bringing its rebuke and sorrow to you. God will turn what might have been into a wonderful lesson of growth for the future.

Christ is the center of everything. Life revolves around him. As a consequence, life comes into proper focus. Despite outward trials, a deep peace possesses the heart, strength grips the spirit and kindness and joy radiate abroad. This is really living!

Turn your heart in God's direction and God will turn His direction to you.  Get serious about God and God will direct your steps.
