Prayer Helps Us Receive the Giver, Not Just the Gifts — A Quote by Sadhu Sundar Singh in “At the Master’s Feet”

“To pray does not imply that without prayer God would not give us anything or that He would be unaware of our needs, but it has this great advantage, that in the attitude of prayer the soul is best fitted to receive the Giver of blessing as well as those blessings He desires to bestow.”

Speaking Life Brings Life — A Quote by Steve and Wendy Backlund in “Igniting Faith in 40 Days”

“In Ezekiel 37, the prophet was asked if the dry bones could live. In the dialogue and events that followed, God showed Ezekiel and His people a powerful principle that is vital for us today. God’s method of bringing life to these very dry bones was through Ezekiel prophesying ‘life’ to the whole situation. Ezekiel had to speak to the bones. He had to prophesy to the wind. As he did, things changed and life came.”

Fearing God Frees Us from Fearing People — A Quote by Carl Medearis in “Muslims, Christians, and Jesus”

“I have discovered that when I fear God, there is no room in my heart to be afraid of men. When I fear God I don’t care about a loss of reputation or a fear of the future. I am secure. This allows me to be non-defensive, gentle, and above all, Christ-focused.”

An Experience of Being Flooded with God — A Quote by Sadhu Sundar Singh in “At the Master’s Feet”

“When I rose up from this prayer I beheld a glowing Being, arrayed in light and beauty, standing before me. Though He spoke not a word, and because my eyes were suffused with tears I saw Him not too clearly, there poured from Him lightning — like rays of life-giving love with such power that they entered in and bathed my very soul. At once I knew that my dear Saviour stood before me. I rose at once from the rock where I was seated and fell at His feet. He held in His hand the key of my heart. Opening the inner chamber of my heart with His key of love, He filled it with His presence, and wherever I looked, inside or out, I saw but Him. Then did I know that man’s heart is the very throne and citadel of God, and that when He enters there to abide, heaven begins. In these few seconds He so filled my heart, and spoke such wonderful words, that even if I wrote many books I could not tell them all.”

Try a Negativity Fast to Change Your Attitude — A Quote by Steve and Wendy Backlund in “Igniting Faith in 40 Days”

“What a Negativity Fast IS
1. It is determining to focus more on God’s promises than on problems.
2. It is learning to speak with hope about even the toughest of issues.
3. It is becoming solution focused rather than problem focused.
4. It is refraining from reacting and giving voice to pessimism, criticism of others, self-criticism and other forms of unbelief.
5. It is speaking about problems to the right people in the right way.
6. It is replacing negative words and thoughts with positive words and thoughts based on the promises of God.”
