By February 6, 2019 Quotes

“The great point is, that we ask only for that which it would be for the glory of God to give to us; for that, and that alone, can be for our real good…”

“The Lord, in His very love and faithfulness, will not, and cannot, let us go on in backsliding but He will visit us with stripes, to bring us back to Himself!”

“When God orders something to be done for the glory of His name, He is both able and willing to find the needed individuals for the work and the means required.”

“It is a common temptation of Satan to make us give up the reading of the Word and prayer when our enjoyment is gone; as if it were of no use to read the Scriptures when we do not enjoy them, and as if it were of no use to pray when we have no spirit of prayer; whilst the truth is, in order to enjoy the Word, we ought to continue to read it, and the way to obtain a spirit of prayer is to continue praying; for the less we read the word of God, the less we desire to read it, and the less we pray, the less we desire to pray.”

“Let none expect to have the mastery over his inward corruption in any degree, without going in his weakness again and again to the Lord for strength. Nor will prayer with others, or conversing with the brethren, make up for secret prayer.”

“Prayer and faith, the universal remedies against every want and every difficulty; and the nourishment of prayer and faith, God’s holy word, helped me over all the difficulties.”

“I myself have for 29 years been waiting for an answer to prayer… and still I have not the full answer yet. Nevertheless, I look for it. I expect it confidently… and so fully am I assured that God hears me about this matter, that I have often been enabled to praise Him beforehand for the full answer… Thus, you see… I have also, like yourself and other believers, the trial of faith concerning certain matters.”

“For it will not do, — it is not possible, to live in sin, and at the same time, by communion with God, to draw down from heaven everything one needs for the life that now is…”

“I never remember, in all my Christian course, a period now of sixty-nine years and four months, that I ever SINCERELY and PATIENTLY sought to know the will of God by the teaching of the Holy Ghost, through… the word of God, but I have been ALWAYS directed rightly. But if honesty of heart and uprightness before God were lacking, or if I did not patiently wait upon God… or… preferred the counsel of my fellow men to… the word of the living God, I made great mistakes.”
