      "No words can express how much the world owes to sorrow. Most of the Psalms were born in the wilderness. Most of the Epistles were written in a prison. The greatest thoughts of the greatest thinkers have all passed through fire. The greatest poets have "learned in suffering what they taught in song." In bonds Bunyan lived the allegory that he afterwards wrote, and we may thank Bedford Jail for the Pilgrim's Progress. Take comfort, afflicted Christian! When God is about to make pre-eminent use of a person, He put them in the fire." -George MacDonald-

            "We can do nothing, we say sometimes, we can only pray. That, we feel, is a terribly precarious second-best. So long as we can fuss and work and rush about, so long as we can lend a hand, we have some hope; but if we have to fall back upon God -- ah, then things must be critical indeed!" -A.J Gossip-

              "Most of us would prefer, however, to spend our time doing something that will get immediate results. We don't want to wait for God to resolve matters in His good time because His idea of 'good time' is seldom in sync with ours.” - Oswald Chambers-

              “If through a broken heart God can bring His purposes to pass in the world, then thank Him for breaking your heart.” - Oswald Chambers-

                “In every Christian’s heart there is a cross and a throne, and the Christian is on the throne till he puts himself on the cross. If he refuses the cross he remains on the throne. Perhaps this is at the bottom of the backsliding and worldliness among gospel believers today. We want to be saved but we insist that Christ do all the dying. No cross for us, no dethronement, no dying. We remain king within the little kingdom of Mansoul and wear our tinsel crown with all the pride of a Caesar, but we doom ourselves to shadows and weakness and spiritual sterility.”

                ― A.W. Tozer, The Radical Cross: Living the Passion of Christ

                  Yes, and we can be like pharaoh and rule Egypt which is a picture of the world and the ways of the flesh. Or we can deny ourselves and take up our cross and follow Jesus and suffer affliction with God's people, instead of enjoying the pleasures of sin and this world for a season (which is this lifetime) as Moses who had true faith did and when he rejected Egypt and esteemed the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt.

                  Hebrews 11

                  By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

                  This world should mean nothing to those who truly belong to God and we should be partaking in the sufferings of Christ, denying ourselves and turning from sin dying the death to live by the will of God to bring the love and life of Christ to others.

                      God's love & compassion never fails=

                      L'amour et la compassion de Dieu ne manquent jamais

                      Gods liefde & mededogen faalt nooit

                      El amor y la compasión de Dios nunca fallan

                      Божья любовь и сострадание никогда не подводят

                      Jumalan rakkaus ja myötätunto eivät koskaan onnistu

                      Gottes Liebe und Mitleid versagen nie

                      My friend: God loves you. He always has, He always will. His love NEVER fails!

                          "If you want to know what God the Father is like, what He is really like: Just look at Jesus. If you want to know what the Father’s attitude about sinners, including you, really is, read the parable of the prodigal son. If you want to know what God’s character is like, observe Jesus forgiving those who beat, tortured, and murdered Him. If you want to know what the Father does when we fall short of being the best example of Him toward others watch Jesus as He weeps over Jerusalem because they refused the peace He brought to them.

                          If you want to know what the Father is like watch as Jesus washes our feet even as we betray Him." -Wardendresden-

                            “The life that is on a solid foundation is not just one that understands doctrine accurately, but is one that is joined to the Word Himself. It is not just knowing the Book of the Lord, but knowing the Lord of the Book.” ― Rick Joyner

                                The change that is coming to the body of Christ is so profound that the world will have a new definition of Christianity... Those who submit to Him in truth... will be the most dangerous and powerful people on earth, and will be the greatest threat to the Antichrist spirit that now sits in the church as a substitute for Him. ― Rick Joyner
