God made us to hear His voice, encounter His presence and walk in intimacy with Him. Your relationship with Him is unique and others may not understand ... but that doesn’t mean they get to discount your experience. You may not be as knowledgeable about God's word but that doesn’t surprise or disappoint God. So if a leader makes you feel that way it’s not of God. Community enhances our relationship with God but it isn’t the foundation. God is. You can hear God. You can read His Word and receive revelation from it. You can make good decisions because you have the Spirit of the living God leading you.

We weaken - not strengthen - our faith when we silence sincere questions. Faith in Christ is not an airy substance that rests on unquestioning souls. Biblical faith is muscular, thickened more through trials than ease.

Do not hold onto the past or cling to what has been comfortable. Instead, embrace the newness of what God is doing and seek His direction for the future. Remember that He is the one who holds all power and authority, and He will equip those who are faithful to Him.

It is a law of the spiritual life that every act of trust makes the next act less difficult. Trusting becomes like breathing, the natural subconsciousness of the redeemed soul.

Bernard of Clairvaux

It's always true to some extent that we make our images of God. It is even truer that our image of God makes us. Eventually, we become like the god we image. One of the most beautiful fruits of knowing the God of Jesus is a compassionate attitude towards ourselves. Healing our image of God heals our image of ourselves.

No one who is not a Christian in spirit can perform the Christian act; and the Sermon on the Mount is not a code of rules to be mechanically followed; it is the description of the life which any man will spontaneously lead when once the Spirit of Christ has taken complete possession of his heart.

Admonished for his lack of familiarity with twentieth-century science, Sundar Singh said, "What is science?" "Natural selection and survival of the fittest," he was told. "Ah," Sundar Singh replied, "but I am more interested in divine selection and the survival of the unfit.

We won't get far in life without wisdom and common sense. And we see that both are gifts of God and that God Himself uses them. Yet so often, we find ourselves doing anything but listening. Wisdom is available and calling to us from everywhere. (Proverbs 1:20-21) But often, we're either not paying attention or ignoring her in favour of our ill-considered choices. However, wisdom is a companion of God, and he has offered this companion to us. It is worth our time to consider the ways in which we continue to ignore her.
