God will not permit any troubles to come upon us, unless He has a specific plan by which great blessing can come out of the difficulty.
When God’s in it, it flows. When the flesh is in it, it’s forced. If he is in it, it’s remarkable how approval will be granted, how our growing interest will percolate, and how the timing will fall right into place. It will come together, almost in spite of you.
The unthankful heart discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings!

Strength, rest, guidance, grace, help, sympathy, love – all from God to us!! What a list of blessings!

Never undertake anything for which you wouldn’t have the courage to ask the blessing of heaven.
The degree of blessing enjoyed by any man will correspond exactly with the completeness of God’s victory over him.
Often, in the midst of great problems, we stop short of the real blessing God has for us, which is a fresh vision of who He is.
We never pray against our government or call down curses on them. Instead, we have learned that God is in control both of our own lives and the government we live under. God has used China’s government for His own purposes, molding and shaping His children as He sees fit. Instead of focusing our prayers against any political system, we pray that regardless of what happens to us, we will be pleasing to God.
Brother Yun is a Chinese Christian who has been severely persecuted for his faith.
God would have us cherish even the smallest of blessings, for in taking a blessing for granted we are well on our way to taking it to its grave.
