Now Playing: Are we facing disappointment or His appointment in our lives?
*** Truth that requires faith to walk by, is resisted by the natural heart.
*** Not one right thought of God ever entered the heart of man through his intellect, but through the conscience.
*** The conscience is the guide to true knowledge. It never turns infidel.
*** He puts sorrow and joy together on our road home; tribulation and joy together; deep poverty and joy together.
*** The thickest cloud brings the heaviest showers of blessing.
*** Little by little with the skill of a master's hand and the gentleness of a Father's heart He woos with His love and weans us through circumstances from earth to heaven.
*** The divine nature is shown by having God as its object.
*** His presence gives moral courage for Christian obedience.
*** Faith and salvation go together. Obedience and happiness go together.
*** We get away with nothing! Beware of the government of God. There is a government of God. Every act in your life and mine has both present and eternal consequences.
*** There is something in everyone of us, speaker included, that only God can correct.
*** The Bible never brings comfort to a Christian who is walking carelessly. Correction despised brings sharper correction.
*** God will never, never send trial into our life without a needs be (1 Peter 1:6) on our part, and a purpose of love on His part.
*** He may test your faith but He will never disappoint your faith.
*** If you did everything right, nothing would be right, except the motive was right; it is the motive that gives value to the act.
*** The motive that governs the heart is the true estimate of man's moral condition before God.
*** Happiness is a state of soul, not a question of circumstances. Circumstances do not produce your state of soul, they only manifest it.
*** It is not by change of circumstances that we can be made happy, but by submission to the will of God.
*** Never fear persecution; it will make your face shine like an angel's
*** Take your circumstances from the Lord, and your difficulties to the Lord.
*** Every blessing of God is an apex, a mountain peak, beyond which even God cannot go. If He has not won your heart and mine, what more could He do to win it.
