# 7 Motives Matter, A. T. Pierson

# 5 The Dark Night of the Soul, A.T. Pierson
“It is in the deepest darkness of the starless midnight that men learn how to hold on to the hidden Hand most tightly and how that Hand holds them; that He sees where we do not, and knows the way He takes; and though the way be to us a roundabout way, it is the right way. “

#4 Trust God Enough To Wait, Michael Youssef

#4 Trust God Enough To Wait, Michael Youssef

“As we grow in intimacy with God, we discern His voice and we obey the Lord—regardless of the circumstance.  We know and believe that God is able to handle any obstacle that enters our path.  We simply obey and watch as His grace unfolds before our very eyes.  In fact, Christ’s life is a perfect model of what it means to have intimacy with God.

Throughout every trial and tribulation, throughout every victory and valley, Jesus was in perfect communion with God. He listened for the voice of His Father and responded appropriately—even if the answer meant He must wait.

In the moments we must wait, God’s grace sustains us.  Waiting on God can be difficult.  In our anxiousness to see Him move, we have a tendency to try and prod God along.  We want to see His glory here and now.  Yet, God is at work preparing the people and circumstances we will encounter along the way.  His grace sustains us as we wait and it prepares the way. May all praise and glory be given to God for His amazing grace!”

# 3 Growth in Grace, A.W. Pink
“Growth in grace is growth downward. It is the forming of a lower estimate of ourselves. It is a
deepening realization of our nothingness. It is a heartfelt recognition that we are not worthy of the least of God’s mercies.”           A. W. Pink  (1886-1952)
