Each believer decides who rules his life, by either actively surrendering to Christ or deliberately going his own way. Even those who try to avoid the issue by making no choice at all unknowingly opt for self-rule. Integrity and godly character await those who choose the Lord over self. Note! the degree of surrender determines the level of transformation.

God's Word is the training manual that gives instruction for discerning deception, resisting temptation, standing firm in faith, and walking in the fullness of the Spirit.

In prayer we choose to either magnify the Lord or our difficulty. Are you concentrating on the faithfulness of God or your problems and negative feelings? Lets keep our eyes on Him and wait with confidence until we see the great things He will do for us.

The main hinge on which faith turns is this: we must not imagine that the Lord's promises are true objectively but not in our experience. We must make them ours by embracing them in our hearts. [John Calvin]

God's promises are a foundation of our faith, and we have them as such, and also of our hope. On these we are to build all our expectations from God; and in all temptations and trials we have them to rest our souls upon. [Matthew Henry]

God has made so many promises---about loving us unconditionally, about caring for us, about providing all of our needs according to His riches in glory. Do you think God ever forgot even one of His promises? No! What He promises, He will provide because all of heaven's power is behind Him. [Charles F. Stanley]

Every promise God has ever made finds its fulfillment in Jesus. [Joni Eareckson Tada]

Abraham never wavered in believing God's promise.......He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever He promises. And because of Abraham's faith, God counted him as righteous. [Romans 4:20-22] (NLT)

There is a living God; He has spoken in the Bible. He means what He says and will do all He has promised. [Hudson Taylor]

Let God's promises shine on your problems. [Corrie Ten Boom]

How to trap an atheist: Serve him a fine meal, then ask him if he believes there is a cook.

God is not silent, it is the nature of God to speak. The second person of the Holy Trinity is called The Word. [A.W. Tozer]
