It is a serious matter for those who are walking in the Spirit to trifle with God's voice or to be disobedient to His commands. Such disobedience may interrupt all communion with Him and hinder all prayer.

The Lord will not save those whom He cannot command.… We take Him for what He is—the anointed Savior and Lord who is King of kings and Lord of all lords! He would not be Who He is if He saved us and called us and chose us without the understanding that He can also guide and control our lives.

There is great peace in knowing that the one who taught us to pray 'your will be done' has every detail of our lives under control.

Nothing is impossible, when you put your trust in God! Nothing is impossible when you're trusting in His Word! Hearken to the voice of God to thee, "Is there anything to hard for Me?" Then put your trust in God alone and rest upon His Word, for everything, Oh, everything, Yes, everything is possible …with God!

The closer we look at the God we worship and at what he is doing, the more we will ooh and aah. As our enthusiasm grows, we can, if we choose to, share our belief and delight [with those who are still in their sins] in a natural way.

Watchman Nee

We must realize that our service to God is not a favor or courtesy to God. It is not a matter of offering ourselves to God's work, but a matter of God being gracious to us and giving us a portion of His work.

What makes us "really good Christians" is trust in Jesus. Period. It's easy, though, to slide into the idea that our stock with God rises and falls with our ability to perform certain spiritual disciplines consistently. As soon as I think God loves me less because I've missed a quiet time, I'm in trouble. Suddenly my Christian life is resting not on trust in what Jesus did, but on my efforts at 6 a.m.

John Piper

The more you adjust or obscure Biblical doctrine in order to make Christian reality acceptable to unbelievers, the less Christian reality there is when they arrive. If you alter or obscure the Biblical portrait of God in order to attract converts, you do not get converts to God, you get converts to an illusion. That is not evangelism. That is deception.

Our servanthood to the Lord Jesus is to express itself in our servanthood to our fellows. The low position we take toward the Lord Jesus is judged by him by the low position we take in our relationship with our fellows. An unwillingness to serve others in costly, humbling ways he takes to be an unwillingness to serve him.

C.S. Lewis

Talk to me about the truth of religion and I'll listen gladly. Talk to me about the duty of religion and I'll listen submissively. But don't come talking to me about the consolations of religion or I shall suspect that you don't understand.

Oswald Chambers

The great word of Jesus to His disciples is Abandon. When God has brought us into the relationship of disciples, we have to venture on His word; trust entirely to Him and watch that when He brings us to the venture, we take it.

"He that but looketh on a plate of ham and eggs to lust after it hath already committed breakfast with it in his heart"

(A light-hearted selah for today - "Smile awhile ….and give your face a rest!")

God's love for us does not tolerate pretense and external worship. Do we gratefully acknowledge His wake-up calls as His loving pursuit?

It is the Christian's privilege, to carry his treasure always in him. His treasure is an abiding one; thieves cannot steal it; moth and rust cannot corrupt it. It was given him by Christ, who is firm, invincible, and unchangeable. This refreshes the spirit of a Christian in all the troubles and afflictions which he has to encounter, that Christ, if he be steadfast in the faith, will never leave him nor forsake him.

Jonathan Edwards

Christ is an ever-flowing fountain; he is continually supplying his people, and the fountain is not spent. They who live upon Christ, may have fresh supplies from him to all eternity; they may have an increase of blessedness that is new, ...and which never will come to an end.
