What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.
God never hurries. There are no deadlines against which he must work. To know this is to quiet our spirits and relax our nerves.
It is doubtful whether God can bless a man greatly until He has hurt him deeply.
Rules for self-discovery–
1. What we want most
2. What we think about most
3. How we use our money
4. What we do with our leisure time
5. The company we enjoy
6. Who and what we admire
7. What we laugh at
The reason why many are still troubled, still seeking, still making little forward progress is because they haven’t yet come to the end of themselves. We’re still trying to give orders and interfering with God’s work within us.
