GOD REMEMBERS HIS CHILDREN

He who counts the stars and calls them by their names is in no danger of forgetting His children.

PRAYER AND LABOR

The praying disciple needs to be taught the necessity of labor and the laboring disciple needs to be taught the necessity of prayer. When our men of devotion become men of diligence and our men of diligence become men of devotion, when there is a union of humble hearts and busy hands, then shall the wonders of the Gospel be spread fruitfully abroad. -Thomas Chalmers-

PERSUADED OF GOD'S KINDNESS

"He who is persuaded of God's kindness towards him is able to stand firm in the heaviest afflictions." John Calvin

PRAYER IS UTTER DEPENDENCY

"Prayer is abandoning hope of independent capability and believing that in Christ you're given everything you need for life and godliness ...prayer decimates my independent self-surety; it puts my utter dependency before my eyes and calls me to cry out for the help that I am so often tempted to deny I need." - Paul David Tripp

Quote, "The earthen-ness of the vessel does not take away from the excellency of the treasure."
