Give me the patience for the small things of life, courage for the great trials of life. Help me to do my best each day and then go to sleep knowing God is awake.— Voltaire
Strong God Is Great quotations
Great eagles fly alone; great lions hunt alone; great souls walk alone-alone with God. Such loneliness is hard to endure, and impossible to enjoy unless God accompanied. Prophets are lone men; they walk alone, pray alone and God makes them alone.
God is not looking for men of great faith, He is looking for common men to trust His great faithfulness.
Greatness can be captured in one word: lifestyle.
Life is God's gift to you, style is what you make of it.
To fall in love with God is the greatest romance;
to seek him the greatest adventure; to find him, the greatest human achievement.
You cannot pray at home, like you can at church, where there is a great multitude; where exclamations are cried out to God as from one great heart, and where there is something more: the unions of minds, the accord of souls, the bond of charity, the prayers of priests.
Sometimes God lets you be in a situation that only He can fix so that you can see that He is the One who fixes it. Rest. He's got it.
God loves with a great love the man whose heart is bursting with a passion for the impossible.
Don't plan with what is in your pocket; plan with what is in God's pocket
The prohibition of science would be contrary to the Bible, which in hundreds of places teaches us how the greatness and the glory of God shine forth marvelously in all His works, and is to be read above all in the open book of the heavens.
The great thing about faith in God is that it keeps a man undisturbed in the midst of disturbance.
Real true faith is man's weakness leaning on God's strength.
Life is too short, the world is too big and God's love is too great to live ordinary.
There is nothing so great as the Eucharist.
If God had something more precious, He would have given it to us.
The darker the night, the brighter the stars, The deeper the grief, the closer is God!
Truth is so great a perfection, that if God would render himself visible to men, he would choose light for his body and truth for his soul
God has allowed hard things in your life so you can show the world that your God is great and that knowing Him brings peace and joy, even when life is hard.
Prayer pulls the rope below and the great bell rings above in the ears of God.
Some scarcely stir the bell, for they pray so languidly. Others give but an occasional pluck at the rope. But he who wins with heaven is the man who grasps the rope boldly and pulls continuously, with all his might.
And it is not necessary to have great things to do.
I turn my little omelette in the pan for the love of God.
When a man is filled with the Word of God you cannot keep him still, If a man has got the Word, he must speak or die.
Avoid the trap of looking back unless it is to glorify God for what He has done.
Don't get upset with your imperfections.
It's a great mistake because it leads nowhere - to get angry because you are angry, upset at being upset, depressed at being depressed, disappointed because you are disappointed. So don't fool yourself. Simply surrender to the Power of God's Love, which is always greater than our weakness.
The wonderful thing about praying is that you leave a world of not being able to do something, and enter God’s realm where everything is possible. He specializes in the impossible. Nothing is too great for His almighty power. Nothing is too small for His love.
Prayer is the greatest power God has put into our hands for service - praying is harder than doing, at least I find it so, but the dynamic lies that way to advance the Kingdom.
We must make a great difference between God's Word and the word of man.
A man's word is a little sound, that flies into the air, and soon vanishes; but the Word of God is greater than heaven and earth, yea, greater than death and hell, for it forms part of the power of God, and endures everlastingly.
Do not look down upon any Muslim, for even the most inferior believer is great in the eyes of God.
People talk of the sacrifice I have made in spending so much of my life in Africa. Can that be called a sacrifice which is simply paid back as a small part of a great debt owing to our God, which we can never repay? All these are nothing when compared with the glory which shall be revealed in and for us. I never made a sacrifice.
Every happening, great and small, is a parable whereby God speaks to us, and the art of life is to get the message.
I know success or failure in my life or ministry does not depend on my own skill or even on external circumstances, it depends only on my faithfulness. God will give me the gifts necessary to do whatever He calls me to do, and He will not be hindered in His work by circumstances.
Stop waiting for what you want, and start working what you've got.
Your greatest limitation is God's greatest opportunity.
If God is the Creator of the entire universe, then it must follow that He is the Lord of the whole universe. No part of the world is outside of His lordship. That means that no part of my life must be outside of His lordship.
We ought not to be weary of doing little things for the love of God, who regards not the greatness of the work, but the love with which it is performed.
There is no sin , and there can be no sin on all the earth , which the Lord will not forgive to the truly repentant! Man cannot commit a sin so great as to exhaust the infinite love of God . Can there be a sin which could exceed the love of God?
We must be global Christians with a global vision because our God is a global God.
We pray because our life comes from God and we yield it back in prayer.
Prayer is a great antidote to the illusion that we are self-made.
