There are times when we simply don’t feel like praying–and that is when we need to pray the most.

From Psalm 32:6-7:  “Therefore let all who are faithful offer prayer to you; at a time of distress, the rush of mighty waters shall not reach them.  You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with glad cries of deliverance.”

God does not give His counsel to the curious or the careless; He reveals His will to the concerned and to the consecrated.

From James 1:5:  “If any of you is lacking in wisdom, ask God, who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and it will be given you.”

He watches over us in the storm, and He can bring us out of the storm when His purposes have been fulfilled.

From Proverbs 16:9:  “The human heart plans the way, but the Lord directs the steps.”

The mind grows by taking in, but the heart grows by giving out.

From 2 Corinthians 9:6-7:  “The point is this:  the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”

I suggest you discipline yourself to spend time daily in a systematic reading of God’s Word.  Make this “quiet time” a priority that nobody can change.

From Exodus 20:1-3:  “Then God spoke all these words:  ‘I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery; you shall have no other gods before me.'”

Outlook determines outcome and attitude determines action.

From Philippians 4:8:  “Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”

Learning God’s truth and getting it into our heads is one thing, but living God’s truth and getting it into our characters is quite something else.

From Ephesians 4:25:  “So then, putting away falsehood, let all of us speak the truth to our neighbors, for we are members of one another.”

There is a difference between doubt and unbelief.  Doubt is a matter of mind:  we cannot understand what God is doing or why He is doing it.  Unbelief is a matter of will:  we refuse to believe God’s Word and obey what He tells us to do.

From Mark 9:24:  “Immediately the father of the child cried out, ‘I believe; help my unbelief!'”

When we are young, change is a treat, but as we grow older, change becomes a threat.  But when Jesus Christ is in control of your life, you need never fear change.

From Matthew 6:34:  “So, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own.  Today’s trouble is enough for today.”

“If the Lord will” is not just a statement on a believer’s lips; it is the constant attitude of his heart.

From Psalm 43-10:  “Teach me to do your will, for you are my God.  Let your good spirit lead me on a level path.”
