“Our vision is so limited we can hardly imagine a love that does not show itself in protection from suffering…. The love of God did not protect His own Son…. He will not necessarily protect us – not from anything it takes to make us like His Son. A lot of hammering and chiseling and purifying by fire will have to go into the process.”

~ Elisabeth Elliot

“Silence promotes the presence of God, prevents many harsh and proud words, and suppresses many dangers in the way of ridiculing or harshly judging our neighbors… If you are faithful in keeping silence when it is not necessary to speak, God will preserve you from evil when it is right for you to talk.”

~ Francois Fenelon (1651-1715), Selections from Fenelon

“Be patient in the mundane activities of life. God is still working. Whatever you do in secret, God will reveal in public.”

~ Christine Caine

“We are dependent upon God for even our sense of worth as individuals. Our uniqueness and dignity are rooted in our creation in the image of God. Our value is not tied to wealth, status, accomplishments, or position. It is a gift. Obviously, this wonderful truth flies in the face of the modern technology to define people by what they produce or what they have…

The terrible reality of the Fall was… a repudiation of our dependence upon God.”

~ Richard J. Foster, Freedom of Simplicity

“Prayer is not appointed for the furnishing of God with the knowledge of what we need, but it is designed as a confession to Him of our sense of the need. In this, as in everything, God’s thoughts are not as ours. God requires that His gifts should be sought for. He designs to be honored by our asking, just as He is to be thanked by us after He has bestowed His blessing.”

~ A. W. Pink

“Resign every forbidden joy; restrain every wish that is not referred to God’s will; banish all eager desires, all anxiety; desire only the will of God; seek him alone and supremely, and you will find peace.”

~ Francois Fenelon

“God will answer all our questions in one way and one way only. Namely, by showing us more of his Son.”

~ Watchman Nee (1903-1972), The Normal Christian Life

“We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties

~ Oswald Chambers

“He who runs from God in the morning will scarcely find Him the rest of the day!”
