Best Kept Secret Crumbs

Wise leaders should have known that the human heart cannot exist in a vacuum. If Christians are forbidden to enjoy the wine of the Spirit they will turn to the wine of the flesh…Christ died for our hearts and the Holy Spirit wants to come and satisfy them.

To be filled with the Holy Spirit means simply to open every aspect of our lives to Him, holding back nothing at all, until we are filled with God . . . .   Hannah W. Smith The Christian’s Secret of a Happy Life

. . . there may be times in our spiritual lives when we feel as settled and immovable as the roots of a mountain. 

But there comes an upheaval and all our foundations are shaken and thrown down.  We are ready to despair, and question whether or not we can be Christian at all.  It was at just such a moment that my own soul caught its first real sight of God.  What seemed certain spiritual ruin and defeat was turned into triumph.  Hannah W. Smith  The God of All Comfort             

                                         

 

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  Against such things, there is no law.  Galatians 5:22-23

                                              

Only as we live in love can we fulfill the will of God in our lives.  Without the fruit of the Spirit, we are just a religious noise.  Unknown

God is ready to assume full responsibility for the life wholly yielded to Him.  Andrew Murray

Therefore I urge you brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.  Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.  Romans 12: 1-2

                                

The problem with Christians is that we keep jumping off the altar.  Unknown

 . . . No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.                  I Corinthians 2:9-10

 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.  Ephesians 3:20

As believers, God’s power is at work within us.  That’s a fact.  When we yield fully to His work, He is able and will do in and through us far more than anything we can dream or imagine.  (Me)

  “It is God that worketh in us, both to will and to do of His good pleasure.” Philippians 2:13
