That there needed neither art nor science for going to God, but only a heart resolutely determined to apply itself to nothing but Him, or for His sake, and to love Him only.
~  Brother Lawrence

Before we can experience even a little of God’s love, we must be really turned to Him and, in mind at least, be wholly turned from every earthly thing.
~  Richard Rolle

Not yet the thunderbolt! Not yet the riven heavens and reeling earth! Not yet the great white throne, and the day of judgement; for He is very pitiful, and beareth long with men!
~  Charles Spurgeon

Humility retires itself from the public gaze.
~  E. M. Bounds

There are many willing to preach to thousands, but are not willing to take their seat beside one soul, and lead that soul to the blessed Jesus.
~  D. L. Moody

One can so easily become too great to be used by God. One can never be too small for His service.
~  Corrie ten Boom

All I can say about humility, is that one can never have too much of it. If it be real, it multiplies itself in the company of Jesus.
~  Lisa VanValkenburgh

Since we are all naturally prone to hypocrisy, any empty semblance of righteousness is quite enough to satisfy us instead of righteousness itself.
~  John Calvin

Christ’s commands were meant to be obeyed. If this be not done, the accumulation of Scripture knowledge only darkens and hardens and works satisfaction with the pleasure which the acquisition of knowledge brings, which unfits us for the Spirit’s teaching.
~  Andrew Murray

But if obedience, Lord, in me do grow, I shall one day be better than I know.
~  George MacDonald

But it is not obedience alone that our Lord will have, but obedience to the truth, that is, to the Light of the World, truth beheld and known.
~ George MacDonald

Our capacity of pain seems to bear an exact proportion to our susceptibility of pleasure.
~  Archibald Alexander

Yet I could not say, “Take thy plague away from me”; but only “Let me be purified, not consumed.”
~  John Wesley

As difficult as it may be for you to believe this today, the Master knows what He’s doing. Your Savior knows your breaking point. The bruising and crushing and melting process is designed to reshape you, not ruin you. Your value is increasing the longer He lingers over you.
~  Charles Swindoll

The kind of trust God wants us to have cannot be learned in comfort and ease.
~  Anne Graham Lotz

We must take our troubles to the Lord…but we must do more than that: we must leave them there.
~  Hannah Whitall Smith

Trust always operates in the present tense.
~  E. M. Bounds

Love is anchored in the persistence to the Truth, even as the Truth offend or cause discomfort. Love seeks to make one comfortable with the Truth until it is uncomfortable with the lack of it.
~  Lisa VanValkenburgh

The better way is to test a person’s boldness by his sincerity, and not sincerity by boldness. True  confidence and a spirit undaunted at death and danger are glorious when the Spirit and Word of Christ stand by to fulfill them.
~ William Gurnall

Although Christ mentioned buying, what He meant was a buyer’s spirit, valuing Christ and His grace so highly that, if they could be bought, a person would be willing to spend all the money in his account and even the blood in his veins for it, yet still go home saying it was a bargain. It is the thirsty soul who will be satisfied, but we must be sure our thirst is right and deep.
~ William Gurnall

“Do not My words do good to him that walketh uprightly?” (Micah 2:7)
But surely it is a dangerous walk when there is no word from God to guide our way.
~ William Gurnall

The first question: “Who do you say that I Am? Crosses the times and its boundaries yet to be seen. Its the first question the Spirit asks of every person before entering the Kingdom, and the question repeats everyday to build our trust in Him, forever.
~ Lisa VanValkenburgh

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah 🙂
