Do not wait for a feeling to come that you are forgiven. God has said you are forgiven. Do not wait for a feeling of power to possess you. God has declared He has already given you the power. As you believe Him (and that is what faith is), you can do what you need to do and what God wants you to do.

Jesus said, “Blessed are the meek” (Matthew 5:5 ESV). If you want to be a happy person, then seek to become a man or woman of meekness.

The difficult thing about obeying God is that it always requires faith. He asks us to do things that sometimes make no sense. Other times He demands that we face seemingly impossible situations armed with nothing but His Word.

But He is faithful. He keeps His promises. And He can be absolutely trusted—in everything and with everything.

When we are set on living the way God wants us to live, we will have all we need to become men and women of godly character and faith. When we do this, there is a good chance that our children will grow up to love God and will seek Him above all else. When He is first in our lives, everything else falls into place.

One day, we will see heaven’s glory and we will bow down and worship Christ. Our unworthiness will be evident, but Christ’s worthiness will be made known to every creature.

Our short brief time on earth is nothing compared to an eternity with God in heaven. We have to make a decision that we are going to live according to the Word of God, empowered by His Holy Spirit until He calls us home, and He knows exactly what day and the moment that our soul and our spirit will leave this body.

Your entrance into the throne room of grace (the very presence of God) does not depend at all upon your righteousness. If it did, you wouldn’t be allowed into the throne room at all.…Your privilege of being in the presence of God depends solely upon the forgiving, cleansing blood of Christ, which makes the believer reckoned righteous in God’s presence.

“Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation.

God, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer’s; he makes me tread on my high places.” (Habakkuk 3:17-19 ESV)

Let God dictate your agenda and help you interpret the events of our times. Become biblically correct rather than politically correct.

The more work we have to do, the more frequently we must drop our heads upon our desks and wait a moment for heavenly aid and love. Then we can press on with new strength.

And though this world with devils filled, should threaten to undo us, we will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us. The prince of darkness grim, we tremble not for him. His rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure: one little word shall fell him.

How little people know who think that holiness is dull. When one meets the real thing... it is irresistible. If even ten percent of the world's population had it, would not the whole world be converted and happy before a year's end?

[There is]… a good fear, a healthy fear, a fear sadly lacking in most of us. David, along with others in the Bible, knew it well. It is the fear of God. And the Scriptures define it as a holy, reverential awe of God. When we fear Him with all our hearts, it puts every other fear in the right perspective. This fear can maintain a right relationship with God.

If we have the faith that believes to see, it will keep us from growing discouraged. We shall "laugh at impossibilities," we shall watch with delight to see how God is going to open up a path through the Red Sea when there is no human way out of our difficulty. It is just in such places of severe testing that our faith grows and strengthens.

There is a powerful movement swirling throughout the world designed to give people peace of mind in relieving them of any historical responsibility for the trial and crucifixion of Jesus Christ. But we may as well admit it. Every one of us in Adam's race had a share in putting Him on the cross!
