Yes, let God be the Judge. Your job today is to be a witness.
- Warren Wiersbe
When we lose one blessing, another is often most unexpectedly given in its place.
- C.S. Lewis
The confession of evil works is the first beginning of good works.
God will not permit any troubles to come upon us, unless He has a specific plan by which great blessing can come out of the difficulty.
- Peter Marshall
The greatest blessing in the whole world is being a blessing.
- Jack Hyles
The Christian Gospel is that I am so flawed that Jesus had to die for me, yet I am so loved and valued that Jesus was glad to die for me. This leads to deep humility and deep confidence at the same time. It undermines both swaggering and sniveling. I cannot feel superior to anyone, and yet I have nothing to prove to anyone. I do not think more of myself or less of myself. Instead, I think of myself less.
- Tim Keller
When we get full of this grace we want to see every one blessed--we want to see all the churches blessed, not only all the churches here, but in the whole country. That was the trouble with Christ's disciples. He had hard work to make them understand that His gospel was for every one, that it was a stream to flow out to all nations of the earth. They wanted to confine it to the Jews, and He had to convince them that it was for every living being.
- Dwight L. Moody
What we count the ills of life are often blessings in disguise, resulting in good to us in the end. Though for the present not joyous but grievous, yet, if received in a right spirit, they work out fruits of righteousness for us at last.
- Matthew Henry
Lord, if You bless me, I’ll thank You; but if You don’t, I’ll be thankful for what I have.
- Phil Robertson
God bestows His blessings without discrimination. The followers of Jesus are children of God, and they should manifest the family likeness by doing good to all, even to those who deserve the opposite.
- F.F. Bruce
However many blessings we expect from God, His infinite liberality will always exceed all our wishes and our thoughts.
- John Calvin
Jesus is moved to happiness every time He sees that you appreciate what He has done for you. Grip His pierced hand and say to Him, "I thank Thee, Savior, because Thou has died for me." Thank Him likewise for all the other blessings He has showered upon you from day to day. It brings joy to Jesus.
- Ole Hallesby
I believe with all my heart that standing up for America means standing up for the God who has so blessed our land. We need God's help to guide our nation through stormy seas. But we can't expect Him to protect America in a crisis if we just leave Him over on the shelf in our day-to-day living.
- Ronald Reagan
God will either give you what you ask or something far better.
- Robert Murray McCheyne
Concentrate on counting your blessings and you'll have little time to count anything else.
- Woodrow Kroll
The grace that has freed us from bondage to sin is desperately needed to free us from our bondage to materialism.
- Randy Alcorn
Christ's life unfolds, in part, as we learn to appreciate the gifts He has given us. How easy it is to blame others for our unhappiness, but we are only unhappy when something other than Christ has become our life. (For example) The husband or wife who has Christ as their life, comes to their spousal relationship already satisfied. They do not come continually looking to made happy by another person's attention; they bring Christ's life to their spouse.
- Francis Frangipane
It is evident that our conversion is sound when we loathe and hate sin from the heart.
- Richard Sibbes
The Church is the Body of Christ, and the Spirit is the Spirit of Christ. He fills the Body, directs its movements, controls its members, inspires its wisdom, supplies it's strength. He guides into truth, sanctifies its agents, and empowers for witnessing. The Spirit has never abdicated His authority nor relegated His power.
- Samuel Chadwick
There is no sin in the whole catalogue of sins you can name but Christ will deliver you from it perfectly.
- Dwight L. Moody
Sense of sin may be often great, and more felt than grace; yet not be more than grace. A man feels the ache of his finger more sensibly than the health of his whole body; yet he knows that the ache of a finger is nothing so much as the health of the whole body.
- Thomas Adams
While I was in Tibet I saw a Buddhist, a monk, who had lived for five or six years in a cave. When he went into the cave he had good eyesight. But because he stayed so long in the darkness his eyes grew weaker and weaker, and at last he became quite blind. It is just the same with us. If we do not use the blessings which we have received from God for His Glory, we are in danger of losing them forever.
- Sadhu Sundar Singh
The truth is there are two great classes of sins - sins of the body, and sins of the disposition. The Prodigal Son may be taken as a type of the first, the Elder Brother of the second.
- Henry Drummond
