When it seems as if God is far away, remind yourself that He is near.  Nearness is not a  matter of geography.  God is everywhere.

From Psalm 8:1:  “Lord, our Sovereign, how majestic is Your name in all the earth!  You have set Your glory above the heavens.”

Bible history is filled with people who began the race with great success but failed at the end because they disregarded God’s rules.

From Proverbs 13:13:  “Those who despise a word bring destruction on themselves, but those who respect a command will be rewarded.”

Surrender your mind to the Lord at the beginning of each day.

From Isaiah 50:4:  “The Lord God has given me a trained tongue, that I may know how to sustain the weary with a word.  Morning by morning He wakens, wakens my ear to listen as those who are taught.”

True contentment comes from godliness in the heart, not from wealth in hand.

From Luke 12:15:  “And He said to them, Take care!  Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of possessions.'”

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.'”
