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
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
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
Blessed is he who has found his work; let him ask no other blessedness. He has a work, a life-purpose; he has found it, and will follow it! Labor is life.
- Thomas Carlyle
The grace that has freed us from bondage to sin is desperately needed to free us from our bondage to materialism.
- Randy Alcorn
Worship is giving God the best that He has given you. Be careful what you do with the best you have. Whenever you get a blessing from God, give it back to Him as a love gift. Take time to meditate before God and offer the blessing back to Him in a deliberate act of worship. If you hoard a thing for yourself, it will turn into spiritual dry rot, as the manna did when it was hoarded. God will never let you hold a spiritual thing for yourself; it has to be given back to Him that He may make it a blessing to others.
- Oswald Chambers
What can I give back to God for the blessings he's poured out on me? I'll lift high the cup of salvation - a toast to God!
The only thing of our very own which we contribute to our salvation is the sin which makes it necessary.
- William Temple
If we understand what lies ahead for those who do not know Christ, there will be a sense of urgency in our witness.
- David Jeremiah
And the longer you delay, the more your sin gets strength and rooting. If you cannot bend a twig, how will you be able to bend it when it is a tree?
- Richard Baxter
All sin results from failure to act in faith.
- John MacArthur
