There’s one piece of advice that is always valid: visit with Jesus. As often as you do it, you are blessed. The life of a disciple is about visiting with Jesus. What does it mean? It means we are sitting at Jesus’ feet talking, laughing, crying, listening, being with Jesus. This is not just a once a week occurrence. And it should not even be just a once a day happening. We should go back and forth all day long. Once we are recharged and filled with the Holy Spirit, we are ready to go out to the world and serve others.

What is your perception of God when you pray? Is He inclining His ear toward you, or do you feel as though you have to persuade Him, or trick Him, into listening? If your image of God is that He is interested and delighted in you, your whole prayer life and approach to Him will be changed. You’ll love prayer! ~ Graham Cooke

Perhaps you live too much in your feelings and too little in your will. We have no direct control over our feelings, but we have over our will. Our wills are ours, to make them God’s. God does not hold us responsible for what we feel, but for what we will. In His sight we are not what we feel, but what we will. Let us, therefore, not live in the summerhouse of emotion, but in the central citadel of the will, wholly yielded and devoted to the will of God.~ FB Meyer

Do you think life is a gift or do you take your life granted? Even if think in theory that life is a gift, there are times when we get so busy and task-oriented that we almost forget that life is a gift from God. A very precious gift from God. When we don’t appreciate breathing, we take life granted. And that leads us into life that is not all it is meant to be. What to do then?

Do not strive in your own strength; cast yourself at the feet of the Lord Jesus, and wait upon Him in the sure confidence that He is with you, and works in you. Strive in prayer; let faith fill your heart–so will you be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.~ Andrew Murray

We shortchange the surprises of God when we lack patience and push for what makes us happy, come what may. Be cautious (I say this to myself) when you run after what you think will satisfy or what you think you deserve because you just might get it. But you'll lose the powerful lesson you would have learned if you just stopped, exercised patience, and surrendered your plan to Jesus. So many times I would rather trust my own provision than to wait on God's.~  Mary DeMuth

We must make the choice to rejoice. Too many of us are cynics. Cynicism, contrary to popular opinion, is not a gift of the Holy Spirit. A cynic is a habitual doubter. He is nearly always negative, expecting the worst, and probing for the worst when there is nothing negative is visible on the surface. Ultimately, a cynic will always discover something that confirms their expectations. I am saying that God is good, and even when things are not good, He works them for our good. If you believe this is true, your faith in God will relieve you from a host of dark and dangerous attitudes. God is Who He says He is. Even if we don’t know all the details along the way, we trust that He is good.~ Francis Frangipane

I hope you will learn, what I am always hoping to learn, to rejoice in God continually, knowing that He is really ordering all your circumstances to the one end of making you a partaker of His own goodness, and bringing you within His own sympathy.~ Thomas Erskine

To worship God in truth is further to admit that we are entirely contrary to Him, and that He is willing to make us like Himself if we desire it. Who will be so imprudent as to turn himself away, even for a moment, from the reverence, love, service and continual adoration which we most justly owe Him? ~ Brother Lawrence

What then are we afraid of? Can we have too much of God? Is it a misfortune to be freed from the heavy yoke of the world, and to bear the light burden of Jesus Christ? Do we fear to be too happy, too much delivered from ourselves, from the caprices of our pride, the violence of our passions, and the tyranny of this deceitful world? ~ Francois Fenelon
