God has marvelous ways of taking our worst tragedies and turning them into His most glorious triumphs.
Author: Joseph Stowell
It is an insult to God to believe in God. For on the one hand it is to suppose that he has perpetrated acts of incalculable cruelty. On the other hand, it is to suppose that he has perversely given his human creatures an instrument -- their intellect -- which must inevitably lead them, if they are dispassionate and honest, to deny his existence. It is tempting to conclude that if he exists, it is the atheists and agnostics that he loves best, among those with any pretensions to education. For they are the ones who have taken him most seriously.

Your idol is shattered in the dust to prove that God's dust is greater than your idol.

Profession: Indian Poet, Philosopher
God is infinite and without end, but the soul's desire is an abyss which cannot be filled except by a Good which is infinite; and the more ardently the soul longeth after God, the more she wills to long after him; for God is a Good without drawback, and a well of living water without bottom, and the soul is made in the image of God, and therefore it is created to know and love God.
Author: Johannes Tauler
It seems to me that the god that is commonly worshipped in civilized countries is not at all divine, though he bears a divine name, but is the overwhelming authority and respectability of mankind combined. Men reverence one another, not yet God.

An infinite God can give all of Himself to each of His children. He does not distribute Himself that each may have a part, but to each one He gives all of Himself as fully as if there were no others.
If God gives you a watch, are you honoring Him more by asking Him what time it is or by simply consulting the watch?
In almost everything that touches our everyday life on earth, God is pleased when we're pleased. He wills that we be as free as birds to soar and sing our maker's praise without anxiety.
The man or woman who is wholly or joyously surrendered to Christ can't make a wrong choice--any choice will be the right one.
What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.
People are too apt to treat God as if he were a minor royalty.

To know the will of God is the greatest knowledge! To do the will of God is the greatest achievement.
Author: George W. Truett
We need God, not in order to understand the why, but in order to feel and sustain the ultimate wherefore, to give a meaning to the universe.
