God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Edith Schaeffer

God's fighting for us does not exclude the responsibility to be prepared for battle both in the area of strategy and in equipment. Trusting God completely in prayer, believing that He is able to do all things, does not remove the need to pray for His strength to accomplish what He has prepared us to do! We are to do what He is unfolding for us to do, fulfilling what God is giving us strength to do, acknowledging that it is His strength and not ours. It is a truly active passive, not a false whining humbleness that says, 'I can't do anything; I'm too weak. — Edith Schaeffer

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Philip Yancey

Bear one another's burdens, the Bible says. It is a lesson about pain that we all can agree on. Some of us will not see pain as a gift; some will always accuse God of being unfair for allowing it. But, the fact is, pain and suffering are here among us, and we need to respond in some way. The response Jesus gave was to bear the burdens of those he touched. To live in the world as his body, his emotional incarnation, we must follow his example. The image of the body accurately portrays how God is working in the world. Sometimes he does enter in, occasionally by performing miracles, and often by giving supernatural strength to those in need. But mainly he relies on us, his agents, to do his work in the world.We are asked to live out the life of Christ in the world, not just to refer back to it or describe it.We announce his message, work for justice, pray for mercy . . . and suffer with the sufferers. — Philip Yancey

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Elizabeth Prentiss

Bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. Take what I cannot give - my heart, body, thoughts, time, abilities, money, health, strength, nights, days, youth, age - and spend them in Thy service, O my crucified Master, Redeemer, God. Oh, let not these be mere words! Whom have I in the heaven but Thee? And there is no one upon earth that I desire in comparison to Thee. My heart is athirst for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God? — Elizabeth Prentiss

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Joel Osteen

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Jeannette Walls

Submitting seemed to me a lot like giving up. If God gave us the strength to bail- the gumption to try and save ourselves- isn't that what he wanted us to do? — Jeannette Walls

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Sarah Orne Jewett

To let God make us, instead of painfully trying to make ourselves; to follow the path that his love shows us, instead of through conceit or cowardice or mockery choosing another; to trust Him for our strength and fitness as the flowers do, simply giving ourselves back to Him in grateful service, - this is to keep the laws that give us the freedom of the city in which there is no longer any night of bewilderment or ignorance or uncertainty. — Sarah Orne Jewett

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Henry Ward Beecher

Though cares and sorrows e'er must come, Though heart be rent, I know that God will give me strength, When mine is spent. — Henry Ward Beecher

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Joseph Haydn

Never was I so devout as when I composed The Creation. I knelt down each day to pray to God to give me strength for my work ...

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Joyce Meyer

If we have to wait to see how we feel before we know if we can enjoy the day, then we are giving feelings control over us. But thankfully we have free will and can make decisions that are not based on feelings. If we are willing to make right choices regardless of how we feel, God will always be faithful to give us the strength to do so. Living the good life that God has made ready for us is based on our being obedient to His way of being and doing. He gives us the strength to do what is right, but we are the ones who must choose it ... God won't do it for us. — Joyce Meyer

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Philip Neri

God gives us always strength enough, and sense enough, for everything He wants us to do. — John Ruskin

Do not give way to lowness while you are young. Rise up on the strength of God and resolve to conquer. — Catherine Booth

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Patrick Madrid

God won't permit temptation beyond your strength. It is true that temptations come to all, but God will give you the graces you need to withstand them, if you ask him to and if you are willing to cooperate with his grace ... In God's presence, consider: Do I put up a fight when temptations beset me, or do I give up quickly and surrender myself to them without a struggle? Do I rely on God's grace to conquer temptations, or am I conquered by them? — Patrick Madrid

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Nick Goepper

I like to quote the verse, "I can do all things through Him who gives me strength." I kind of envision me skiing and God is kind of like an eagle right next to me screeching in my ear that everything is going to be all good. I just try my best and that's all I can ask for. — Nick Goepper

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Lydia Brownback

God is glorified not by calling strong women but by giving His strength to weak women. — Lydia Brownback

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Jerry B. Jenkins

Know what?" he said. "The one I'm really mad at is God. I try not to, but the truth is, when you boil it down, he let me get cancer." "Humph," I said. "I always thought that God must trust you a lot to let you go through this." Jeff flinched. "What do you mean?" "Well, he knew you believed in him. He must have known how you would react. He trusted you to go through it." Jeff frowned. "That's a thought. He's the one giving me the strength. That's funny. I'm mad at the one giving me strength." I hadn't meant to be profound. It just slipped out. — Jerry B. Jenkins

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Benjamin Carson

You pray for yourself and just ask God to give you strength. — Benjamin Carson

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By R.C. Sproul

When we understand the character of God, when we grasp something of His holiness, then we begin to understand the radical character of our sin and hopelessness. Helpless sinners can survive only by grace. Our strength is futile in itself; we are spiritually impotent without the assistance of a merciful God. We may dislike giving our attention to God's wrath and justice, but until we incline ourselves to these aspects of God's nature, we will never appreciate what has been wrought for us by grace. Even Edwards's sermon on sinners in God's hands was not designed to stress the flames of hell. The resounding accent falls not on the fiery pit but on the hands of the God who holds us and rescues us from it. The hands of God are gracious hands. They alone have the power to rescue us from certain destruction. — R.C. Sproul

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By B.K.S. Iyengar

When you inhale, you are taking the strength from God. When you exhale, it represents the service you are giving to the world. — B.K.S. Iyengar

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Joyce Meyer

Just deciding to forgive isn't enough because willpower alone won't work - we need divine strength from God. As He gives us the strength, we need to pray for our enemies and bless them. Praying for those who have hurt us is vital to successfully forgiving them. — Joyce Meyer

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Oswald Chambers

Patience has the meaning of testing-a thing drawn out and tested, drawn out to the last strand in a strain without breaking, and ending in sheer joy. The strain on a violin string when stretched to the uttermost gives it its strength; and the stronger the strain, the finer is the sound of our life for God, and He never strains more than we are able to bear. — Oswald Chambers

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

God's grace is the strength for every good deed. — Lailah Gifty Akita

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Martin Luther

Let all the 'free-will' in the world do all it can with all its strength; it will never give rise to a single instance of ability to avoid being hardened if God does not give the Spirit, or of meriting mercy if it is left to its own strength. — Martin Luther

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Pope John Paul II

Prayer gives us strength for great ideals, for keeping up our faith, charity, purity, generosity; prayer gives us strength to rise up from indifference and guilt, if we have had the misfortune to give in to temptation and weakness. Prayer gives us light by which to see and to judge from God's perspective and from eternity. That is why you must not give up on praying! — Pope John Paul II

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Charles Spurgeon

Prayer girds human weakness with divine strength, turns human folly into heavenly wisdom, and gives to troubled mortals the peace of God. We know not what prayer can do. — Charles Spurgeon

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Wladyslaw Stanislaw Reymont

Our duty is to rise in the bright daylight, openly, beating the drums. The cause for which we are ready to give our necks does not fear the light, and to attack the enemy by guile would not suit it. A Pole has always despised ambushes, and God forbid that he should change. We shall not fail to have enough strength to defeat our enemies if we do not fail to have the spirit of sacrifice and love. — Wladyslaw Stanislaw Reymont

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By David O. McKay

Thoughts mold your features. Thoughts lift your soul heavenward or drag you toward hell. ... As nothing reveals character like the company we like and keep, so nothing foretells futurity like the thoughts over which we brood. ... To have the approval of your conscience when you are alone with your thoughts is like being in the company of true and loving friends. To merit your own self-respect gives strength to character. Conscience is the link that binds your soul to the spirit of God. — David O. McKay

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Joel Osteen

Ask God to give you the strength to endure, and rest assured, He will take care of you. — Joel Osteen

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Manny Pacquiao

The religion is a personal thing in my life and fighting in the ring, it's boxing. It's my profession. God always gives me strength. — Manny Pacquiao

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Mother Teresa

To be pure, to remain pure, can only come at a price, the price of knowing God and loving him enough to do his will. He will always give us the strength we need to keep purity as something as beautiful for him. — Mother Teresa

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Lori Lansens

When we talk about God, I think what most of us mean is some greater thing, some higher power that can help us access our own strength or give us strength. — Lori Lansens

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Pope Francis

What has the Cross left in each of us? You see, it gives us a treasure that no one else can give: the certainty of the faithful love which God has for us. A love so great that it enters into our sin and forgives it, enters into our suffering and gives us the strength to bear it. It is a love which enters into death to conquer it and save us. — Pope Francis

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Aaron Watson

I put everything in God's hands, asking him to give me strength and understanding. I asked him to help me to be strong for my family and that he would continue to take care of us. One day, shortly after that, I woke up really inspired. — Aaron Watson

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Jack Hyles

God never gives us anything to do that He does not give us the strength to do. — Jack Hyles

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Rebecca St. James

In our quest for living a pure, focused life that pleases God, we all hit the wall at one time or another. What do we do then? Give up ... Not an option. I have had times when the road has gotten long ... Those periods can be very challenging. When they happen, I go to God and ask for His strength for the journey. — Rebecca St. James

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Paramahansa Yogananda

Sing songs that none have sung, think thoughts that ne'er in the brain have rung,
Walk in paths that none have trod, weep tears as none have shed for God,
Give peace to all to whom none other gave,
Claim him your own who's everywhere disclaimed.
Love all with love that none have felt and
Brave the battle of life with strength unchained. — Paramahansa Yogananda

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Harry S. Truman

Our religious faith gives us the answer to the false beliefs of Communism ... I have the feeling that God has created us and brought us to our present position of power and strength for some great purpose. — Harry S. Truman

O God, how easily I make them happy! Give me strength to be always the light of their lives and so lead them to You! — Mother Teresa

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Dick Taylor

I like "God Give Me the Strength" very much. It's not really a blues and to call it a ballad is absurd. I don't know, its mid-tempo. Mark (St. John) actually wrote it and I think its very telling of our lives in the 60s. Its just a good song, ya know ... — Dick Taylor

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Richard Sibbes

Whatsoever God takes away from His children, He either replaces it with a much greater favor or else gives strength to bear it. — Richard Sibbes

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Pope Benedict XVI

Lifting one's gaze to the living God, the guarantor of our freedom and of truth, is a premise for arriving at a new humanity.

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Kay Arthur

So many times we say that we can't serve God because we aren't whatever is needed. We're not talented enough or smart enough or whatever. But if you are in covenant with Jesus Christ, He is responsible for covering your weaknesses, for being your strength. He will give you His abilities for your disabilities! — Kay Arthur

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Duane Chapman

You know God gives me that inner strength that super strength to get through things. — Duane Chapman

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Naomi Levy

It is God who enables us to return to life after tragedy-not by eradicating all suffering but by giving us the strength and the courage to heal what we can heal. — Naomi Levy

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Octavius Winslow

God is near at hand when you do approach Him in prayer. Oh, comforting truth! A God at hand to hear the softest breath of prayer-to listen to every confession of sin-to every cry of need-to every utterance of sorrow-to every wail of woe-to every appeal for counsel, strength, and support. Arise, O my soul! and give yourself to prayer; for God is near at hand to hear and answer you. — Octavius Winslow

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Angie Harmon

I pray everywhere
in the shower, on a plane, in traffic, you name it. When I feel like I have had enough, I will literally take a knee, bow my head, and beg God for help and strength. I know not to beg Him for patience, because then He gives me situations in which I have to grow more patient; I learned that lesson! And if I am having a wonderful day, I will stop to thank Him. It's a relationship. — Angie Harmon

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By John Wolcot

Enjoy thy stream, O harmless fish; And when an angler for his dish, Through gluttony's vile sin, Attempts, the wretch, to pull thee out, God give thee strength, O gentle trout, To pull the rascal in! — John Wolcot

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By John Ruskin

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Charles R. Swindoll

God does not dispense strength and encouragement like a druggist fills your prescription. The Lord doesn't promise to give us something to take so we can handle our weary moments. He promises us Himself. That is all. And that is enough. — Charles R. Swindoll

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Emmet Fox

If you seem to yourself to be lacking in certain necessary qualities, if your character seems to lack strength, ask God to give you what you need - and He will. You can build any quality into your mentality by meditating upon that quality every day. — Emmet Fox

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Ravi Zacharias

The Biblical world-view is the only one that accepts the reality of evil and suffering while giving both the cause and the purpose, while offering God-given strength and sustenance in the midst of it. — Ravi Zacharias

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By George Orwell

For if in careless summer days
In groves of Ashtaroth we whored,
Repentant now, when winds blow cold,
We kneel before our rightful lord;
The lord of all, the money-god,
Who rules us blood and hand and brain,
Who gives the roof that stops the wind,
And, giving, takes away again;
Who spies with jealous, watchful care,
Our thoughts, our dreams, our secret ways,
Who picks our words and cuts our clothes,
And maps the pattern of our days;
Who chills our anger, curbs our hope,
And buys our lives and pays with toys,
Who claims as tribute broken faith,
Accepted insults, muted joys;
Who binds with chains the poet's wit,
The navvy's strength, the soldier's pride,
And lays the sleek, estranging shield
Between the lover and his bride. — George Orwell

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Francois Fenelon

God never makes us sensible of our weakness except to give us of His strength. — Francois Fenelon

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Gary Carter

I love you Lord, you are my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior. And my God is my rock in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the strength of my salvation, and my stronghold. I will call on the Lord who is worthy of praise. I praise the Lord, my God, my best friend, for giving me the ability, the desire, the love and the guidance that brought me here today. Without you, I would be nothing. — Gary Carter

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Mahatma Gandhi

God tries his votaries through and through but never beyond endurance. He gives them strength enough to go through the ordeal he prescribes for them. — Mahatma Gandhi

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Stacey Thacker

As much as we sometimes want God to remove us from our messes, more often He just gets in it with us - lifting our heads, giving us strength, helping us put one foot in front of the other as we slosh our way through it — Stacey Thacker

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Marvin Sapp

God didn't give you the strength to get back on your feet so that you can run back to the same things that knocked you down. — Marvin Sapp

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Mary N. Cook

To navigate through these mists of darkness we need the iron rod, which represents the word of God (see 1 Nephi 15:23-24). We must study and understand the truths and commandments found in the scriptures. We must listen carefully to the words of our latter-day prophets, whose teachings will give us guidance, direction, and protection. And we must hold to the standards found in For the Strength of Youth. — Mary N. Cook

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Marc Chagall

What counts is art. painting, a kind of painting that is quite different from what everyone makes it out to be. But what kind?

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By A.B. Simpson

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Hudson Taylor

So if God should place me in serious perplexity, must He not give me much guidance; in places of great difficulty, much grace; in circumstances of great pressure and trial, much strength? No fear that HIs resources will prove unequal to the emergency! And His resources are mine, for He is mine, and is with me and dwells in me. — Hudson Taylor

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Peace Pilgrim

Any praise I receive does not change me, for I pass it right along to God. I walk because God gives me strength to walk, I live because God gives me the supply to live, I speak because God gives me the words to speak. All I did was to surrender my will to God's will. My entire life has prepared me for this undertaking. This is my calling. This is my vocation. This is what I must be doing. I could not be happy doing anything else. — Peace Pilgrim

God Giving Us Strength Quotes By Saint Francis De Sales

God will either shield you from suffering or give you unfailing strength to bear it. — Saint Francis De Sales
