Jesus' people need to humble themselves and pray, aligning their will with the will of God.…When Moses aligned his will with God's will, God brought water out of the rock. When Joshua aligned his will with the will of God, the sun stood still in its orbit. When David aligned his will with the will of God, Goliath fell. When Elijah aligned his will with the will of God, fire came from heaven on Mount Carmel and licked up everything, including the water. And when Daniel aligned his will with the will of God, mouths of lions were zipped. That's what happens when we align our will with the will of God and intercede.

We all have ideas of what we want to do and who we want to be. These are not evil or wrong. Still, I must be willing to give them up if asked to do so by the Lord. And in the place of those flawed plans, I will have God's perfect plan for my life.

We are to give to our partner in marriage—without weighing it against what’s being offered on the other side, with humble thanks for each other, with sincere appreciation for each other, with gratitude for the opportunity to meet each other’s needs without being asked. Then our giving will be an off-the-scale fragrant offering to each other, an acceptable sacrifice that is pleasing to God. [ed: give a fragrant offering to your husband or wife today… an offering that will be pleasing to God]

Measure not God’s love and favour by your own feeling. The sun shines as clearly in the darkest day as it does in the brightest. The difference is not in the sun, but in some clouds which hinder the manifestation of the light thereof.

It is through the death of Jesus that we have a living hope in this world. Jesus did not just die, he was raised from the dead and ascended to His Father in heaven, which gives proof for the true hope that is placed within us by the Spirit of God. It is that hope that we need to share with others who are attempting to live daily in a godless society that offers only a false hope that ends in an eternal death.

Our righteousness is in Him, and our hope depends, not upon the exercise of grace in us, but upon the fullness of grace and love in Him, and upon His obedience unto death.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

In a world where success is the measure and justification of all things the figure of Him who was sentenced and crucified remains a stranger and is at best the object of pity. …The figure of the Crucified invalidates all thought that takes success for its standard.

Billy Graham

World events are moving very rapidly now. I pick up the Bible in one hand, and I pick up the newspaper in the other. And I read almost the same words in the newspaper as I read in the Bible. It’s being fulfilled every day round about us.

If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.

C.H. Spurgeon

You say, 'If I had a little more, I should be very satisfied.' You make a mistake. If you are not content with what you have, you would not be satisfied if it were doubled.

There is not a single thing that Jesus cannot change, control, and conquer because he is the living Lord.

Oswald Chambers

Remember Whose you are and Whom you serve. Provoke yourself by recollection, and your affection for God will increase tenfold; your imagination will not be starved any longer, but will be quick and enthusiastic, and your hope will be inexpressibly bright.

We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.

If you believe in a God who controls the big things, you have to believe in a God who controls the little things. It is we, of course, to whom things look 'little' or 'big'.
