Brutal storms may come from the four corners of universe, try to destroy and sweep away everything you ever worked for and even threaten to destroy your entire life.

God Favour Quotes By Charles Hodge

Prayer is the converse of the soul with God. Therein we manifest or express to Him our reverence, and love for His divine perfection, our gratitude for all His mercies, our penitence for our sins, our hope in His forgiving love, our submission to His authority, our confidence in His care, our desires for His favour, and for the providential and spiritual blessings needed for ourselves and others. — Charles Hodge

God Favour Quotes By Terry Virgo

Remember God has accepted us. The gospel of grace is a message of breathtaking freedom. It must be embraced with faith and thanksgiving. You are thoroughly accepted just as you are. Jesus Christ is your righteousness and he is never going to change. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. When you wake tomorrow, he will still be your righteousness, before you have done anything to enjoy God's favour. You have to earn nothing. Your spirit needs to bask in the brilliant sunlight of this reality. You need to know it inwardly and celebrate it on a daily basis. — Terry Virgo

God Favour Quotes By Paulo Coelho

God's decisions are always mysterious, but they are always in our favour. — Paulo Coelho

God Favour Quotes By Karl Barth

The righteousness of God in His election means, then, that as a righteous Judge God perceives and estimates as such the lost cause of the creature, and that in spite of its opposition He gives sentence in its favour, fashioning for it His own righteousness. — Karl Barth

God Favour Quotes By Jonathan Edwards

For when God is said by these things to try men and prove them, to see what is in their hearts and whether they will keep His commandments or no, we are not to understand, that it is for His own information, or that He may obtain evidence Himself of their sincerity (for he needs no trials for His information); but chiefly for their conviction, and to exhibit evidence to their consciences ...
So when God tempted or tried Abraham with that difficult command of offering up his son, it was not for His satisfaction, whether he feared God or no, but for Abraham's own greater satisfaction and comfort, and the more clear manifestation of the favour of God to him. — Jonathan Edwards

God Favour Quotes By Matthew Henry

God's favour is happiness. — Matthew Henry

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Robin Lane Fox

God Favour Quotes By Louis De Montfort

According to St. Bonaventure, all the angels in heaven unceasingly call out to her: "Holy, holy, holy Mary, Virgin Mother of God." They greet her countless times each day with the angelic greeting, "Hail, Mary", while prostrating themselves before her, begging her as a favour to honour them with one of her requests. According to St. Augustine, even St. Michael, though prince of all the heavenly court, is the most eager of all the angels to honour her and lead others to honour her. At all times he awaits the privilege of going at her word to the aid of one of her servants. — Louis De Montfort

God Favour Quotes By Daniel Defoe

Well then," said I, "if God does not forsake me, of what ill consequence can it be, or what matters it, though the world should all forsake me, seeing on the other hand, if I had all the world, and should lose the favour and blessing of God, there would be no comparison in the loss? — Daniel Defoe

God Favour Quotes By Michel De Montaigne

It was truly very good reason that we should be beholden to God only, and to the favour of his grace, for the truth of so noble a belief, since from his sole bounty we receive the fruit of immortality, which consists in the enjoyment of eternal beatitude ... The more we give and confess to owe and render to God, we do it with the greater Christianity. — Michel De Montaigne

God Favour Quotes By G.K. Chesterton

IF we desire European civilization to be a raid and a rescue, we shall insist rather that souls are in real peril than that their peril is ultimately unreal. And if we wish to exalt the outcast and the crucified, we shall rather wish to think that a veritable God was crucified, rather than a mere sage or hero. Above all, if we wish to protect the poor we shall be in favour of fixed rules and clear dogmas. The rules of a club are occasionally in favour of the poor member. The drift of a club is always in favour of the rich one. — G.K. Chesterton

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

I have experience near-death many times but a divine power saved me. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Hilary Mantel

It is magnificent. At the moment of impact, the king's eyes are open, his body braced for the atteint; he takes the blow perfectly, its force absorbed by a body securely armoured, moving in the right direction, moving at the right speed. His colour does not alter. His voice does not shake.
"Healthy?" he says. "Then I thank God for his favour to us. As I thank you, my lords, for this comfortable intelligence."
He thinks, Henry has been rehearsing. I suppose we all have.
The king walks away towards his own rooms. Says over his shoulder, "Call her Elizabeth. Cancel the jousts. — Hilary Mantel

God Favour Quotes By Immanuel Jakobovits, Baron Jakobovits

In all "benedictions", be they expressing plea or thanksgiving, we affirm that God is the "source" of every bounty we enjoy and of every favour we seek. — Immanuel Jakobovits, Baron Jakobovits

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

If you seek the presence of God, you will see the glory of God: — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Sunday Adelaja

Instead of us to rely on the strength and ability God has given us we hope for favor and help from God and people then do nothing. — Sunday Adelaja

God Favour Quotes By Plutarch

It was for the most part by sacrifices, processions, and religious dances, which he himself appointed and conducted, and which mingled with their solemnity a diversion full of charm and a beneficent pleasure, that he won the people's favour and tamed their fierce and warlike tempers. At times, also, by heralding to them vague terrors from the god, strange apparitions of divine beings and threatening voices, he would subdue and humble their minds by means of superstitious fears. — Plutarch

God Favour Quotes By N. T. Wright

problematic within post-Reformation dogmatics. Is faith something I 'do' to earn God's favour, and, if not, what role does it play? Once we release Paul's justification-language from the burden of having to describe 'how someone becomes a Christian', however, this is simply no longer a problem. There is no danger of imagining that Christian faith is after all a surrogate 'work', let alone a substitute form of moral righteousness. Faith is the badge of covenant membership, not something someone 'performs' as a kind of initiation test. — N. T. Wright

God Favour Quotes By Horatius Bonar

Have I then no work to work in this great matter of my pardon? None. What work canst thou work? What work of thine can buy forgiveness or make thee fit for the Divine favour? What work has God bidden thee work in order to obtain salvation? None. His Word is very plain and easy to be understood, "To him that worketh not, but believeth in Him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness" (Rom. 4:5). There is but one work by which a man can be saved. That work is not thine, but the work of the Son of God. That work is finished. — Horatius Bonar

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Grace is God-divine favour. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

God's timing is magnificent. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Nassim Nicholas Taleb

I'm in favour of religion as a tamer of arrogance. For a Greek Orthodox, the idea of God as creator outside the human is not God in God's terms. My God isn't the God of George Bush. — Nassim Nicholas Taleb

God Favour Quotes By William Barclay

For Paul, the centre of the Christian faith was that we can never earn or deserve the favour of God, nor do we need to. The whole matter is one of grace, and all that we can do is to accept in wondering love and gratitude and trust what God has done for us. — William Barclay

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

In the light of love, I find the glory of God's grace. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Robert Murray M'Cheyne

Self-righteousness ... is the largest idol of the human heart - the idol which man loves most and God hates most. Dearly beloved, you will always be going back to this idol. You are always trying to be something in yourself, to gain God's favour by thinking little of your sin, or by looking to your repentance, tears, prayers ; or by looking to your religious exercises, your frames, etc; or by looking to your graces, the Spirit's work in your heart. Beware of false Christs. Study sanctification to the utmost, but make not a Christ of it. — Robert Murray M'Cheyne

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

I write the words God put on my mind. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

In love, a divine self manifest. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Bernard Cornwell

So you know it was a glorious battle, Hook, in which God favoured the English, but God's favour is a fickle thing.'
'Are you telling me He's not on our side?'
'I'm telling you that God is on the side of whoever wins, Hook. — Bernard Cornwell

I experience the grace of greater power. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

We are trying to find something to feel the void. It is only God who can fill the void. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Rolfe Barnard

Mercy is God's favour that holds back from us what we deserve. Grace is God's favour that gives us what we do not deserve. — Rolfe Barnard

God Favour Quotes By Katherine J. Walden

When it comes to giving thanks to God, there isn't a card, a sentiment, a picture, or a word that can adequately express the gratitude in my heart. What can I say to the One who not only saved my life but who also adopted me into His family? How can I possibly express my thankfulness for His riches? How can I express my gratitude for His friendship and His healing touch? How does one find the words to thank Him for His unconditional love, unmerited favour, and forgiveness? Dictionaries and thesauruses can't help me. All I can say is 'Thank you, God' with the hope that those humble words convey all that is in my heart. — Katherine J. Walden

God Favour Quotes By Joseph Hall

No marvel if the worldling escape earthly afflictions. God corrects him not. He is base born and begot. God will not do him the favour to whip him. The world afflicts him not, because it loves him: for each man is indulgent to his own. God uses not the rod where He means to use the Word. The pillory or scourge is for those malefactors that shall escape execution. — Joseph Hall

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

To fear God is to seek his favour. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi

I would take school instruction out of the hands of the old order of decrepit, stammering, journeymen-teachers as well as from the new weak ones, who are generally no better for popular instruction, and entrust it to the undivided powers of Nature herself, to the light that God kindles and ever keeps alive in the hearts of fathers and mothers, to the interest of parents who desire that their children should grow up in favour with God and man. — Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Love is a divine being. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

There is grace for survival in any situation. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By King Hassan II

I beg the Most High to allow me the favour of the double reward, but if God only finds me worthy of one reward, I will accept it in all humility. — King Hassan II

God Favour Quotes By John Calvin

Men are indeed to be taught that the favour of God is offered, without exception, to all who ask it; but since those only begin to ask whom heaven by grace inspires, even this minute portion of praise must not be withheld from Him. It is the privilege of the elect to be regenerated by the Spirit of God, and then placed under His guidance and government. — John Calvin

God Favour Quotes By Sunday Adelaja

One destructive mind-set that must be altered in our society is the thought that work is a curse. Some people advocate that if you are truly blessed you don't need to work hard. Because as they say "the race is not to the swift", I even had statements like "a day of favour is better than a thousand years of labour". To make things worse, this type of teachings are actually coming from our pulpits. We call ourselves Protestants, but we have totally departed from the teachings of the early Protestants. Martin Luther, John Wesley and John Calvin would turn in their graves, if they hear the kind of teachings we are now feeding the people of God with. — Sunday Adelaja

God Favour Quotes By Jamie Larbi

God is still on the throne, He knows where He's taking you and He's working out things around in your favour. — Jamie Larbi

God Favour Quotes By Stephen Domena

CHAPTER THREE SIN USHERS MAN TO DEATH But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. -Romans 6:22-23 As Lust got older, Grandpa Earth would yield his treasures to her; everything precious that he stored, he would render to his firstborn grandchild. Lust became very wealthy incomparable to every other living being including her dad. She employed many of her siblings, and advised them of how to make great success as her employees. Despite her favour with her granddad, she did not receive the same preferential treatment from Grandma Sun. — Stephen Domena

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

I am blessed and highly favoured. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By W. Somerset Maugham

I wonder if you're not over-sensitive about your misfortune. Has it ever struck you to thank God for it? As long as you accept it rebelliously it can only cause you shame. But if you looked upon it as a cross that was given you to bear only because your shoulders were strong enough to bear it, a sign of God's favour, then it would be a source of happiness to you instead of misery. — W. Somerset Maugham

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

When God leads you to it, He will give it to you. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Lora O'Brien

It's all about the relationships; forming them and sustaining them, growing and building a back and forth that will be useful to both parties. Generally speaking, I'm not a fan of the practice so often seen today: a person decides that a particular God or Goddess is suitable for a one off ritual or occasion, calls them up, expects them to grant boons and favours and help out in whatever situation is being worked for, and then is never heard from again. If a complete stranger walked into your house and asked for a favour, however politely - would you be inclined to help? Possibly you would, and sometimes the Powers do too, if there is sufficient offering or perhaps bribery involved. They are not above being bought off. However, most people would be far more inclined to help out when a friend asks a favour, and this follows through with the Gods, in my experience. A give and take relationship is the most effective and respectful way I have found of working with them. — Lora O'Brien

God Favour Quotes By Richard Sibbes

Measure not God's love and favour by your own feeling. The sun shines as clearly in the darkest day as it does in the brightest. The difference is not in the sun, but in some clouds which hinder the manifestation of the light thereof. — Richard Sibbes

God Favour Quotes By Lionel Blue

For some years I deserted religion in favour of Marxism. The republic of goodness seemed more attainable than the Kingdom of God. — Lionel Blue

God Favour Quotes By Ikechukwu Joseph

God does not call the "qualified" but qualifies the called — Ikechukwu Joseph

God Favour Quotes By Frank Wedekind

God made man in his own image, and man returned the favour. — Frank Wedekind

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

The breath of life is divine grace of God. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Thomas A Kempis

Whereupon then can I hope, or wherein may I trust, save only in the great mercy of God, and the hope of heavenly grace? For whether good men are with me, godly brethren or faithful friends, whether holy books or beautiful discourses, whether sweet hymns and songs, all these help but little, and have but little savour when I am deserted by God's favour and left to mine own poverty. There is no better remedy, then, than patience and denial of self, and an abiding in the will of God. — Thomas A Kempis

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

God will fulfill your wishes. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Osunsakin Adewale

What man's labour cannot do in ten years, GOD's favour can settle it in ten seconds. — Osunsakin Adewale

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Amazing grace,amazing life. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Israelmore Ayivor

A little "thank you" that you will say to someone for a "little favour" shown to you is a key to unlock the doors that hide unseen "greater favours". Learn to say "thank you" and why not? — Israelmore Ayivor

God Favour Quotes By Martin Luther

Faith is a living, bold trust in God's grace, so certain of God's favour that it would risk death a thousand times trusting in it. Such confidence and knowledge of God's grace makes you happy, joyful and bold in your relationship to God and all creatures. The Holy Spirit makes this happen through faith. Because of it, you freely, willingly and joyfully do good to everyone, serve everyone, suffer all kinds of things, love and praise the God who has shown you such grace. — Martin Luther

God Favour Quotes By Hillsong

When the world caves in
Still my hope will cling
To Your promise
Where my courage ends
Let my heart find strength
In Your presence — Hillsong

God Favour Quotes By Teresa Of Avila

For though we know quite well that God is present in all that we do, our nature is such that it makes us lose sight of the fact; but when this favour is granted it can no longer do so, for the Lord, who is near at hand, awakens it. And even the favours aforementioned occur much more commonly, as the soul experiences a vivid and almost constant love for Him whom it sees or knows to be at its side. — Teresa Of Avila

God Favour Quotes By Nicholas Chong

And it was inconceivable that the God of War would not be able to be the victor in a little skirmish like that, when all the cards were already stacked in his favour.
What could Jupiter do if he took her by force & deflowered her? In Roman Mythology, Mars was the only God who had ever raped a Vestal Virgin, an event that led to the birth of Romulus & Remus & the founding of Rome.[MMT] — Nicholas Chong

God Favour Quotes By Karl Barth

It is undoubtedly the case (and considerations advanced in the first sub-section have prepared us for this conclusion) that the election does in some sense denote the basis of all the relationships between God and man, between God in His very earliest movement towards man and man in his very earliest determination by this divine movement. it is in the decision in favour of this movement, in God's self-determination and the resultant determination of man, in the basic relationship which is enclosed and fulfilled within Himself, that God is who He is. — Karl Barth

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

God's power, gracious life. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Francois Du Toit

The more we aware we become of God in us, the more overwhelmed we are with a sense of total fulfilment and completeness; needs disappear into insignificance. He is not a God who is a far of; he is Emmanuel! Nothing you can seek to do or wish and pray for could qualify you more for life. Nothing can make you more attractive or your life more significant than to simply become aware of his nature and presence in you and his favour towards you mirrored in the finished work of Christ — Francois Du Toit

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

God Almighty, I don't want to ask for more. But to say more thanks. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

God turned the adversity into a blessing. What a divine intervention? — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

The Lord is our mighty shield.
The Lord is our greet strength. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Lady Jane Grey

God and posterity will show me more favour — Lady Jane Grey

God Favour Quotes By Sarah Lotz

Good listeners, I don't need to tell you that now more than ever, we're living in Godless times. We're living in a time when the Bible is shunned in our schools in favour of scientific evolutionary lies, where many are expelling God from their hearts, where sodomites and baby murderers and heathens and Islamofascists have more rights in our country than good Christian men and women. Where Sodom and Gomorrah cast a pall over every aspect of our daily lives, and our world leaders are trying with all their might to construct the culture of globalisation favoured by the Antichrist. — Sarah Lotz

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Heavenly Father, I thank you for your favour. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Thank God for His daily blessings. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Sharon Kay Penman

Sensible men were not eager to submit themselves to the Judgement of the Almighty, and a decisive battle seemed to prove that the victor had God on his side. Most people preferred not to put the Lord's Favour to such a stringent, conclusive test. — Sharon Kay Penman

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Where God leads, He provides. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Anonymous

PRO3.3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: PRO3.4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. PRO3.5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. — Anonymous

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

God is merciful to all who repent and turn to Him. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Pope Leo X

It has always been the habit of Catholic in danger and in troublous times to fly for refuge to Mary, and to seek for peace in Her maternal goodness; showing that the Catholic Church has always, and with justice, put all her hope and trust in the Mother of God. And truly the Immaculate Virgin, chosen to be the Mother of God and thereby associated with Him in the work of man's salvation, has a favour and power with Her Son greater than any human or angelic creature has ever obtained, or ever can gain — Pope Leo X

God Favour Quotes By Stephen R. Lawhead

Yet, there was once a king worthy of that name. That king was Arthur. It is paramount disgrace of this evil generation that the name of that great king is no longer spoken aloud except in derision. Arthur! He was the fairest flower of our race, Cymry's most noble son, Lord of the Summer Realm, Pendragon of Britain. He wore God's favour like a purple robe.
Hear then, if you will, the tale of a true king. — Stephen R. Lawhead

God Favour Quotes By Benjamin L. Gladd

The Resurrection of Jesus is not simply a sign which God has granted in favour of His son, but is the inauguration, the entrance into history, of the times of the End. — Benjamin L. Gladd

God Favour Quotes By Helen Roseveare

I had never deserved to be forgiven in the first place when I aas converted. I could do nothing to merit God's favour, His grace, His love. If all I had ever known was unmerited and undeserved grace, how could I then forfeit that which I never earned?... Was I too proud, in some strange, inverted way to humble myself to accept an unmerited forgiveness? I know that it was all of grace, yet my inner being wanted the right to do something to merit it. I was trying to work out my own salvation, to earn God's forgiveness, to prove the sincerity of my repentance...At last I knew that it was true. It was not based on my feeling or on my emotions. It was not dependent on my faith or my obedience. In no way could I merit or deserve it. He loved me. He knew me through and through, better than I knew myself, and yet still, He loved me. Christ died on Calvary to tell me that. Christ lives in Heaven, an unceasing intercessor on my behalf to make that love real to me in my experience. — Helen Roseveare

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

They that know their God shall not be disappointed. They will stand the test of time. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

The glorious riches of God are inexhaustible. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Favour Quotes By Suzanne Brockmann

As Ian popped the lock and opened the car door, he turned to Phoebe. "Can you do me a favour?"
She immediately stepped toward him, fully embracing their new mature relationship. "Of course."
Ian looked pointedly over his own shoulder and said, "Tell me the truth. Does this car make my glowing ass look fat?"
She'd naturally followed the direction of his gaze, but now she looked up, hard, into his eyes. And she smiled back at him despite herself. She even laughed. "You're an idiot."
"When things get too serious, I get a rash."
She pointedly looked back down at his nether regions, despite the fact doing so made her blush. Still, she spoke coolly, dryly. "Not on your ass."
If Ian believed in love, that would've been it for him. Instantly. Enthrallingly. Eternally. Instead, he just laughed. "Thank God for that. See if there's anything remotely clothinglike in the backseat or the trunk. — Suzanne Brockmann
