Be patient.  God is using today’s difficulties to strengthen you for tomorrow.  He is equipping you.  The God who makes things grow will help you bear fruit.

From 2 Peter 1:5-7:  “For this very reason, you must make every effort to support your faith with goodness, and goodness with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with endurance, and endurance with godliness, and godliness with mutual affection, and mutual affection with love.”

God created marriage.  No government subcommittee envisioned it.  No social organization developed it.  Marriage was conceived and born in the mind of God.

 

David Wilkerson

Love is not something you feel.  It is something you do.

I’ve never been surprised by God’s judgement, but I’m still stunned by His grace.

From Luke 15:3-7:  “So He [Jesus] told them this parable:  Which one of you, having a hundred sheep and losing one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one that is lost until he finds it?  When he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders and rejoices.  And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’  Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.”

Bitterness is the trap that snares the hunter.

From Ephesians 4:31-32:  “Put away from you all bitterness and wrath and anger and wrangling and slander, together with all malice, and be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you.”

In our faith we follow in someone’s steps.  In our faith we have footprints to guide others.  It’s the principle of discipleship.

From 1 Timothy 4:12:  “Be an example to the believers in Word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”

Earthly fears are no fears at all.  Answer the big question of eternity, and the little questions of life fall into perspective.

From 1 Corinthians 4:6:  “I have applied all this to Apollos and myself for your benefit, brothers and sisters, so that you may learn through us the meaning of the saying, ‘Nothing beyond what is written,’ so that none of you will be puffed up in favor of one against another.”
