When we are in the dark we know through our sense of touch what kind of object we are holding in our hands, whether it is a stick or a snake. Both can be felt in the darkness, but we can see them only in the light. So long as we are not in the light we grope and stumble about, and we cannot see true reality. The man who does not believe in Divine Light is still in darkness. What then shall we do to come to the Light? We must step out of the darkness and approach the Light; that is, we must kneel before our Saviour and pray to Him fervently. Then we shall be bathed in His Light, and we shall see everything clearly.

  So much power lies in the sustainability of understanding God’s Word in the depths of your being, to the point that it changes the lenses through which you see the world.\

Our prayers should be simple—there is no need to instruct the Father. This lack of complexity should be just as true for our minor personal requests as for sweeping global needs. In both cases, we are echoing the prayer of Jesus, "Your Kingdom come on earth as it is currently being manifested in heaven" (see Matt. 6:10). We do not need to tell Him how to handle everything. He is God; He knows already. We just need to present the needs to Him.

Making resolutions to spend more time praying will not prove lastingly effective unless there is a measure of trust or faith that God is nearby and is actively listening.

The truth is that we were made to abandon ourselves, made to give all in love without compromise. Innate in our makeup is dissatisfaction with half-heartedness and a yearning to love and be loved to the uttermost. It is the highest way to live, the most pleasurable and freeing existence for the human heart. The frustration we experience in apathy and the discontent we face in partiality it’s not something within us gone awry but rather a cry lifting its voice that is holy and God-given. We were created with this groan for wholeheartedness because God himself is wholehearted.

Words not spoken in love, are like knocking on a door of an empty house. You can make a lot of noise but no one will respond.

Teachings on faith have become like coat after coat of varnish on old master paintings, darkening their color. We have been swindled by theologies and theories from the simplicity which is in Christ. They have pushed faith out of reach, as something remote, a rare mystery granted only by the sovereign will of God. Yes, God does give faith. Faith is the gift of God. But it is God’s gift to everybody, for every child sitting at His table. "God has dealt to every man the measure of faith". We can choose to use it or not. Ephesians 2:8 declares "Ye are saved through faith and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God". Misreading this verse some people wait for faith to come, or say "I am not a faith person, I don’t have that gift". Faith IS the gift of God, and so is sight and hearing and every faculty. They are powers we all possess and use, and faith is a similar faculty. So, "fear not, only believe."

Blaise Pascal

There is nothing that we can see on earth which does not either show the wretchedness of man or the mercy of God. One either sees the powerlessness of man without God, or the strength of man with God.

The man who measures things by the circumstances of the hour is filled with fear; the man who sees Jehovah enthroned and governing has no panic.
