You Are Not a Victim, Kay Arthur

“In any trial, in any bitter situation, you are not alone, you are not helpless, you are not a victim. You have a tree, a cross, shown to you by the Sovereign God of Calvary. Whatever the trial or temptation, it is not more than you can bear. It is bearable. It can be handled. You can know as Joseph knew, ‘You meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive’ (Genesis 50:20).”  Kay Arthur (1933-present)

Forward in God, John Wright Follette

Forward in God, John Wright Follette

“Every time you have a new experience in God and there is a transition, an evolving or moving forth, God will change your diet.

The diet is the revelation of the Word of God, and you will have a fresh revelation of the Word of God, and you will have a fresh revelation of truth which will be adequate to carry you through this experience. We cannot live the same life we lived a year ago. Absolutely not.

The Lord says, ‘As thy days, so shall thy strength be.’

‘Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.’

‘Give us this day our daily bread.’

God has something for your individual heart. Do not be afraid. Be patient. Be quiet. Look up into His face. Be honest with Him. Say, ‘Thank you, Lord. You have some truth that will grip my heart and spirit and qualify me and make me able to march in victory through this day. Jesus, what is the revelation You have for me.'”

John Wright Follette (1883-1966)  From, Fruit of the Land

Give Your Whole Self to God, C. S. Lewis, “Mere Christianity”

Give Your Whole Self to God, C. S. Lewis, “Mere Christianity”

“Give me all of you!!! I don’t want so much of your time, so much of your talents and money, and so much of your work. I want YOU!!! ALL OF YOU!! I have not come to torment or frustrate the natural man or woman, but to KILL IT! No half measures will do. I don’t want to only prune a branch here and a branch there; rather I want the whole tree out! Hand it over to me, the whole outfit, all of your desires, all of your wants and wishes and dreams. Turn them ALL over to me, give yourself to me and I will make of you a new self—in my image. Give me yourself and in exchange I will give you Myself. My will, shall become your will. My heart, shall become your heart.”

Mere Christianity, C. S. Lewis (1898-1963)

When the Wind Blows, Amy Carmichael
“Let us not be surprised when we have to face difficulties. When the wind blows hard on a tree, the roots stretch and grow the stronger, Let it be so with us. Let us not be weaklings, yielding to every wind that blows, but strong in spirit to resist.” Amy Carmichael (1867-1951)
