Moments Of Truth

Below, a few moments of truth to think on today:

“From the cowardice that shrinks from new truth; from the laziness that is content with half-truth; from the arrogance that thinks it knows all truth, oh, God of truth, deliver us.”–Author Unknown (thanks to my friend, Charles White, for this quote)

“There is enough in God to fill our treasures, to replenish every hungry soul, to supply all our wants, to answer all our desires, to make us completely happy.”–Matthew Henry

“Men and women are at their noblest and best when they are on their knees before God in prayer. To pray is not only to be truly godly; it is also to be truly human. For here are human beings, made by God like God and for God, spending time in fellowship with God. So prayer is an authentic activity in itself, irrespective of any benefits it may bring us. Yet it is also one of the most effective of all means of grace. I doubt if anybody has ever become at all Christlike who has not been diligent in prayer.”–John Stott

The Guardrail

To say prayers in a decent, delicate way is not heavy work. But to pray really, to pray till hell feels the ponderous stroke, to pray till the iron gates of difficulty are opened, till the mountains of obstacles are removed, till the mists are exhaled and the clouds are lifted, and the sunshine of a cloudless day brightens-this is hard work, but it is God’s work, and man’s best labor.”–E.M. Bounds

Fall upon your knees, break forth into a thankful triumph of praise; let your hearts be ten-stringed instruments, to sound forth the memorial of God’s mercy. None so deep in debt to free grace as you, and none should be so high mounted upon the pinnacle of thanksgiving. Say as the sweet singer; ‘I will extol thee, my God, O King; every day will I bless thee, and I will praise thy name for ever’ (Psalm 145:1,2). Those who are patterns of mercy should be trumpets of praise.”–Thomas Watson, All Things for Good

Walk In Truth

“It’s so easy to fear, which is really a form of death. I asked God one time why He put death first in Proverbs 18:21 – ‘Death and life are in the power of the tongue.’ He told me because it’s easy to speak death, but it takes work to speak life. To build up, not tear down. Encourage, not belittle. It takes investment of time, of self. It’s easy to do what comes naturally to the natural man: d
eath. fear. doubt.”  –Kari (

“I would rather be God’s servant than man’s king.”–Charles L. Johnson

“You cannot dissuade a person from a position with reason and facts if reason and facts did not determine the position in the first place.”-Author Unknown

“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”–Corrie Ten Boom

“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”–Author Unknown

And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” And the twenty-four elders who sat before God on their thrones fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying:

“We give You thanks, O Lord God Almighty,
The One who is and who was and who is to come,
Because You have taken Your great power and reigned.”Revelation 11:15b-17
