SAGE ADVICE ON LIFE AND MINISTRY+:
"Cast the burden of the present, along with the sin of the past and the fear of the future, upon the Lord, who forsaketh not his saints..."
"CAST YOUR CARES ON THE LORD, AND HE WILL SUSTAIN YOU...HE HAS DELIVERED US AND WILL DELIVER US. ON HIM WE HAVE SET OUR HOPE THAT HE WILL CONTINUE TO DELIVER US." (PSALM 55:22; 2 CORINTHIANS 1:10)
"Care more for a grain of faith than a ton of excitement..."
"IF YOU HAVE FAITH AS A SMALL AS A MUSTARD SEED, YOU CAN SAY TO THIS...TREE, 'BE UPROOTED AND PLANTED IN THE SEA,' AND IT WILL OBEY YOU." (LUKE 17:6)
"Trust God alone, and lean not on the reeds of human help. Be not surprised when friends fail you...it is a failing world...inconstancy you may reckon upon without fear of disappointment..."
"DO NOT PUT YOUR TRUST IN PRINCES, IN MORTAL MEN, WHO CANNOT SAVE." (PSALM 146:3)
"Be content to be nothing, for that is what you are. When your own emptiness is painfully forced upon your consciousness, chide yourself that you ever dreamed of being full, except in the Lord..."
"I HAVE LEARNED TO BE CONTENT WHATEVER THE CIRCUMSTANCES...IN ANY AND EVERY SITUATION...I CAN DO EVERYTHING THROUGH HIM WHO GIVES ME STRENGTH." (PHILIPPIANS 4:12B,13)
"Continue with double earnestness to serve your Lord when no visible results is before you. Any simpleton can follow the narrow path in the light: Faith's rare wisdom enables us to march on in the dark with infallible accuracy, since she places her hand in that of her great Guide."
"THEY WILL NOT TOIL IN VAIN OR BEAR CHILDREN DOOMED TO MISFORTUNE, FOR THEY WILL BE A PEOPLE BLESSED BY THE LORD, AND THEIR DESCENDANTS WITH THEM." (ISAIAH 65:23)
"In nothing let us be turned aside from the path which the divine call has urged upon us to pursue. Come fair or foul...the ministry (is) our warfare; be it ours, when we cannot see the face of God, to trust under the shadow of his wings."
"...I CONSIDER MY LIFE WORTH NOTHING TO ME, IF ONLY I MAY FINISH THE RACE AND COMPLETE THE TASK THE LORD JESUS HAS GIVEN ME." (ACTS 20:24A)
My prayer is that you are having a great week!
