Constant renewal through fellowship with God – Andrew Murray

Constant renewal through fellowship with God – Andrew Murray

While others still slept, He went away to pray and to renew His strength in communion with His Father. He had need of this, otherwise He would not have been ready for the new day. The holy work of delivering souls demands constant renewal through fellowship with God.

Why I am no longer anxious about anything – Hudson Taylor

Why I am no longer anxious about anything – Hudson Taylor

I am no longer anxious about anything, as I realize the Lord is able to carry out His will, and His will is mine. It makes no matter where He places me, or how that is rather for Him to consider than for me; for in the easiest positions He must give me His grace, and in the most difficult, His grace is sufficient.

Rest in Christ – Matt McMillen

God doesn’t want you to do religious stuff to feel better about yourself. He wants you to rest in Christ.

Wait on God – JI Packer

Wait on God – JI Packer

“Wait on the Lord”—is a constant refrain in the Psalms, and it is a necessary word, for God often keeps us waiting. He is not in such a hurry as we are, and it is not his way to give more light on the future than we need for action in the present—or to guide us more than one step at a time.  When in doubt—do nothing—but continue to wait on God. When action is needed, light will come.

Find Rest in God – Corrie Ten Boom

Find Rest in God – Corrie Ten Boom

If you look at the world, you’ll be distressed. If you look within, you’ll be depressed. If you look at God you’ll be at rest.

Waiting for God – G. Campbell Morgan

Waiting for God – G. Campbell Morgan

Waiting for God means power to do nothing save under command. This is not lack of power to do anything. Waiting for God needs strength rather than weakness. It is power to do nothing. It is the strength that holds strength in check. It is the strength that prevents the blundering activity which is entirely false and will make true activity impossible when the definite command comes.

Don’t Lose Jesus – Vance Havner

Don’t Lose Jesus – Vance Havner

It is one of the ironies of the ministry that the very man who works in God’s name is often hardest put to find time for God. The parents of Jesus lost Him at church, and they were not the last ones to lose Him there.

Rest for the heavy-laden – Hudson Taylor

Rest for the heavy-laden – Hudson Taylor

To every toiling, heavy-laden sinner, Jesus says, “Come to me and rest.” But there are many toiling, heavy-laden believers, too. For them this same invitation is meant. Note well the words of Jesus, if you are heavy-laden with your service… “Come to me and rest.” Never, never did Christ send a heavy laden one to work.
