Here are the final quotes this week from my journals. These are great truths to hold onto!
I will go before you [Juli], and level the mountains. I will smash down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. And I will give you treasures hidden in darkness–secret riches. I will do this so you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, the one who calls you by name. — Isaiah 45:2-3
When the heart has learned how entirely powerless it is, even for one moment, to keep itself or bring forth any good, when it has learned how surely and truly God will keep it — when in despair of self it has accepted God’s promise to do for it the impossible — it learns to rest in God. — Andrew Murray
Since the church is Christ’s body, with which He is organically united, He loves it so much that in its interest He exercises His infinite power in causing the entire universe with all that is in it to co-operate, whether willingly or unwillingly. — Jerry Bridges
