New Words for the New Year

“But I do know this about the future: it comes one day at a time. And the safest way to prepare for tomorrow is to be right with God today. . . . When we consult God before we serve him, he is able to lead us according to his ‘good and acceptable and perfect’ will (Romans 12:2). He is a realtime God who reveals his will in the moment”–Jim Denison.

“But far and above the most revealing aspect of anyone’s character is how he handles people. Friends, I hope you understand this–the way a person handles others is the acid test of his true nature”–

“Whoever is on God’s side is on the winning side and cannot lose; whoever is on the other side is on the losing side and cannot win”–A.W. Tozer.

“God is never in a hurry; He will fulfill His plans in His time. . . .The question is not, ‘Is God in control of the world?’ but, ‘Is God in control of my life?’ “–John Kincaid.

“There are always enough hours in the days we give to God. So, the question is not whether we have enough time, but whether we will use fully the time that we have”–Jim Denison.
