The Power of the Written Word


Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
John 17:17

*****

The ‘fear of the Lord’ means fearing to dishonor the Lord, which means fearing to distrust the Lord which means fearing to fear anything that the Lord has promised to help you overcome. In other words the fear of the Lord is the great fear destroyer.
-John Piper

To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.
-G. K. Chesterton

True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.
-George Washington

Suffering is a sacred entrustment by God for the further development of His child to have a greater ministry then he ever knew.
-Jim Binney

Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.
-Corrie Ten Boom

Knowing that God rules over all things gives you hope...there are things that happen to us that are awful...But here's what I know, God is good. He can't help but be good. And whatever has come to pass was for God's glory. And ultimately, because I'm His, it's for my good. I believe that. Because I trust a sovereign God...this is the only way you have hope in dire circumstances. It's the only way.
-Voddie Baucham

The Christian soldier must avoid two evils-he must not faint or yield in the time of fight, and after a victory he must not wax insolent and secure. When he has overcome, he is so to behave himself as though he were presently about to be assaulted. For Satan's temptations, like the waves of the sea, do follow one in the neck of the other.
-George Downame

Marvel not that we do not excel—marvel that we do excel in anything, unstable as we are.
-C.H. Spurgeon

Where there is much love, all discord ends. 
-Thomas Dekker

The devil is aware that one hour of close fellowship, hearty converse with God in prayer, is able to pull down what he hath been contriving and building many a year.
-John Flavel

*****

See that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: Being born again, not of corruptible seed,
but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. For all flesh is as grass,
and the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
But the word of the Lord endureth for ever.
1 Peter 1:22b-25a
