Christian Quotes: Frances Bacon

I am by nature a curious person. I like to find out how things work, or why they are the way they are. My husband will tell you one of my favorite phrases is, “I wonder…” Seeking knowledge is a good thing, as long as we don’t take it too far. For instance, sometimes I’ve found myself in a snit because I just can’t figure a thing out. That’s when curiosity gets a tinge of pride to it.

I’ve learned in those moments to stop thinking so much, and to turn to God with my questions instead. I don’t always get a direct answer, but He always teaches me something valuable in the process.

Blessings, Heather

“A prudent question is one-half of wisdom.”

Francis Bacon

“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”

James 1:5

“Do not heed the jar of man’s warring opinions. Let God be true and every man a liar. The Bible is the Bible still. If any man lacks wisdom, let him ask of God. You have an unction from the Holy One, and you know all things.”

Horatius Bonar

“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”

James 1:5

“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit…”

Colossians 3:16

Wednesday Worship

This song always touches my heart, because it’s the reminder I need to shift my focus back onto the Lord, and to fix my attitude back to gratitude. I challenge you to listen to this and NOT feel blessed by Him!

Christian Quotes: Martin Luther

Moshe Paranov, a well-known conductor, was also a founder of the music school I attended. Every year, he’d share a lesson with the student body. It started with, “At 20 you think you know everything.” And by the age of 50 or so, this person realizes how much they really don’t know.

As a young college undergrad, I didn’t appreciate the truth in what Mr. Paranov said. But over the years, sure enough, I’ve come to understand that for most of us humility is a mindset that comes with experience. No matter how young or old you are, though, you don’t have to wait another day to ask God for the willingness to receive His wisdom.

“If thou art wise thou knowest thine own ignorance; and thou art ignorant if thou knowest not thyself.”

Martin Luther

“The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice.”

Proverbs 12:15

Christian Quotes: Charles Spurgeon

It’s good to keep learning about God and to know His Will. But actually doing what Pleases Him and follows His Call is a whole other level of living. To get there, our goal should be to take all that we discover and let it change our hearts. That’s growing in wisdom.

“Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom.”

Charles Spurgeon

“Blessed are those who find wisdom,
    those who gain understanding,
for she is more profitable than silver
    and yields better returns than gold.
She is more precious than rubies;
    nothing you desire can compare with her.
Long life is in her right hand;
    in her left hand are riches and honor.
Her ways are pleasant ways,
    and all her paths are peace.

Proverbs 3:13-17

Christian Quotes: David Jeremiah

The inwards fortitude needed to face life’s difficulties comes only as we open our hearts to Christ in the quiet moment, ceasing from activity and letting Him supply guidance, confidence, and direction we reflect on His word.

David Jeremiah

”But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”

2 Corinthians 12:9

God Makes Us Able

“I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”

Philippians 4:13

This verse seems to always come into my mind after a night without much sleep, when facing my to-do list seems impossible. But it applies anytime we feel “too small” in our own skin or situation.

Those are actually precious moments, because they remind us of the kind of God we have – One who is full of power, who delights in making us powerful, too. But keep in mind that “all things” doesn’t necessarily mean “everything in the world.” So as we ask God for that strength, let’s find out what “all things” means for us today.

Christian Quotes: David Livingstone

The saying “Jesus was born on Earth to die for us” is absolutely true. And if that were all He did, we would be blessed beyond measure. But before the cross He had a three-year ministry that was absolutely full of miracles. Every eye that was opened to see God, and every sick body that found relief and renewed health pointed back to the Father. Jesus was, and still is, the ultimate messenger of God’s grace.

“God had an only Son, and He was a missionary and a physician.”

David Livingstone

“I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.”

John 12:46

”Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.”

Matthew 9:35

Christian Quotes: Tim Keller

Before you even existed, God knew you and had a plan in place to save you. Jesus willingly gave Himself up so that you could be in relationship with Him and His Father. I hope those truths make you feel abundantly loved – because you are. Sometimes we need reminding… 🙂

“Jesus took the tree of death so you could have the tree of life.”

Tim Keller

“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

John 14:6

“…there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”

Proverbs 18:24

Christian Quotes: Franklin Graham

How amazing is it that we can speak of Jesus in the present and future tense? History documents His life and death. But Scripture reveals that He lived before coming to Earth, and now continues to live and work on our behalf. His presence has always been with us, and always will be – let that thought sink in.

“There is not a single thing that Jesus cannot change, control, and conquer because he is the living Lord.”

Franklin Graham

”The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”

Colossians 1:15-17
