There are so many great quotes in the various books I read, and today I’m sharing some of the best ones with you. I hope these words encourage you today.
Of all the providential dealings of God toward me throughout the year, I must take my stand and testify that God’s way is right. When things seem to go wrong with me, instead of believing they are going wrong, I stand upon the authority of God’s Word. I decided long ago that instead of trusting my way, I will gladly trust blindly in the wisdom of God. If I trust blindly in God’s wisdom, He will lead me by a way I know not. He will guide in paths where I have not been before. He will make darkness light before me and make crooked things straight, and will lead me through into His marvelous light. God will lead me into a rich place and make me rich with treasures that can never die. [spiritual treasures] If I want my own way, God will let me go my way. Many Christians do just that. They insist on their plans and their ambitions and imperil everything because they lack the wisdom to know how to do it. God’s way is the best way, because it is backed up by the infinite wisdom of God. Gladly will I blindly trust God’s way instead of my own. — A. W. Tozer, My Daily Pursuit, pg. 378
A man who is destitute knows how to pray. He needs not an instructor. His miseries indoctrinate him wonderfully in the art of prayer. Let us know ourselves destitute that we might know how to pray. –Stephen Marshall
It’s not our job to fix people; it’s our job to love them even while they are broken. –Dave Willis
Winding this year down makes me pause to think and in my thinking I thank God that in His wisdom He has my best in mind for the longest period of time. What God is doing in my life right now cannot be defined by the word now! I have lived long enough to realize that God has all my tomorrows in mind when He is opening or closing a door now, today…O God, I stand between time and eternity. The only thing linking these two in my life is Thee. Thou hast my best interests in mind for the longest period of time. I rejoice in this truth. –A. W. Tozer, My Daily Pursuit, pg. 377
Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken. My victory and honor come from God alone. He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me. O my people, trust in Him at all times. Pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge. –Psalm 62:5-8 [NLT]
