When you draw near to God, you cease from asking for things. 'Your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask him.' Then, why ask? That you may get to know Him.
Ask God for what you want, but you cannot ask if you are not asking for a right thing.
Never make the blunder of trying to forecast the way God is going to answer your prayer.

We look upon the enemy of our souls as a conquered foe, so he is, but only to God, not to us.
When it is a question of God's almighty Spirit, never say, 'I can't.'
You will never cease to be the most amazed person on earth at what God has done for you on the inside.
Holiness, not happiness, is the chief end of man.
The dearest friend on earth is a mere shadow compared to Jesus Christ.
