#6. I would hope that wherever I was I would be me. I have been influenced by some wonderful people who showed me that there is an integral relationship between faith and life at home. Evil is evil, repression is repression anywhere. And if it is not consistent with what one believes is God's will, then I would hope that one would be able to witness it, and there are wonderful people who do so in very great risks to themselves. - Author: Desmond Tutu
Gods Will quotes by Desmond Tutu

Gods Will quotes by Rick Warren

Gods Will quotes by Phil Vischer
#11. Who seeks for heaven alone to save his soul,
May keep the path, but will not reach the goal;
While he who walks in love may wander far,
Yet God will bring him where the blessed are. - Author: Henry Van Dyke
Gods Will quotes by Henry Van Dyke

Gods Will quotes by Dwight L. Moody
#13. There is something servile in the interpretation of sin as crime which infringes the will of God and calls for legal proceedings on the part of God. Sin is dividedness, a state of deficiency, incompleteness, dissociation, enslavement, hatred, but it is not disobedience and not formal violation of the will of God. - Author: Nikolai Berdyaev
Gods Will quotes by Nikolai Berdyaev

Gods Will quotes by Andrew Wommack

Gods Will quotes by Eva Green

Gods Will quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#22. It's not our place to question God's will, and it is clearly God's will that the two of us become man and wife." It's a testament to my fine character that I don't smash that Bible right into his nose. "You wouldn't know God's will if it tipped its hat and said howdy. - Author: Rae Carson
Gods Will quotes by Rae Carson
#23. In this night too, in this night of his mortal eyes into which he was now descending, love and danger were again waiting ...
a murmur of glory and hexameters, of men defending a temple the gods will not save, and of black vessels searching the sea for a beloved isle;
the murmor of the Odysseys and Iliads it was his destiny to sing and leave echoing concavely in the memory of man.
These things we know, but not those he felt descending into the last shade of all. - Author: Jorge Luis Borges
Gods Will quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#24. God loves you simply because He has chosen to do so. He loves you when you don't feel lovely. He loves you when no one else loves you. Others may abandon you, divorce you, and ignore you, but God will love you always. No matter what! - Author: Max Lucado
Gods Will quotes by Max Lucado
#25. You have to have faith that you are doing God's will. Sometimes you will not understand. Sometimes you will doubt. But if you are doing God's will, you can't be wrong, you can't go wrong. - Author: Philippa Gregory
Gods Will quotes by Philippa Gregory
#26. Should you fail to pilot your own ship, don't be surprised at what inappropriate port you find yourself docked. - Author: Tom Robbins
Gods Will quotes by Tom Robbins

Gods Will quotes by Leonard Ravenhill
#31. If you want to be holy, if you seek meaning in your life, start looking into your own life and attacking your pride in all of its many forms. God will give you extraordinary light and the ultimate reward of holiness. For your holiness relies not on what you do, but on what you allow God to do through you. Have courage. God will perfect you. - Author: Mother Angelica
Gods Will quotes by Mother Angelica

#34. Faith is not believing that God can, but that God will. - Author: Abraham Lincoln
Gods Will quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#35. I repeat that dogmatics is not a thing which has fallen from Heaven to earth. And if someone were to say that it would be wonderful if there were such an absolute dogmatics fallen from Heaven, the only possible answer would be: 'Yes, if we were angels.' But since by God's will we are not, it will be good for us to have just a human and earthly dogmatics. The Christian Church does not exist in Heaven, but on earth and in time. And although it is a gift of God, He has set it right amid earthly and human circumstances, and to that fact corresponds absolutely everything that happens in the Church. The Christian Church lives on earth and it lives in history, with the lofty good entrusted to it by God. In the possession and administration of this lofty good it passes on its way through history, in strength and in weakness, in faithfulness and in unfaithfulness, in obedience and in disobedience, in understanding and in misunderstanding of what is said to it. - Author: Karl Barth
Gods Will quotes by Karl Barth
#36. As a nihilist, I recognize that meaning does not exist. If we exterminate ourselves as a species, and vaporize our beautiful world, the universe will not cry with us (a condition called the pathetic fallacy). No gods will intervene. It will just happen and then - and then the universe will go on. We will not be remembered. We will simply not be. - Author: Vjay Prozak
Gods Will quotes by Vjay Prozak
#37. When we discover the secret of being inwardly at worship while outwardly at work, we find that the soul's silence brings us to God and God to us. Silence takes us beyond the limits of consciousness and into the heart and mind and will of God. - Author: J. Brent Bill
Gods Will quotes by J. Brent Bill
#38. Let a man set his heart only on doing the will of God and he is instantly free. If we understand our first and sole duty to consist of loving God supremely and loving everyone, even our enemies, for God's dear sake, then we can enjoy spiritual tranquility under every circumstance. - Author: Aiden Wilson Tozer
Gods Will quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
#39. When our circumstances don't line up with what the Word says, we shouldn't judge or assume it is God's will. Instead we should continue to renew our minds with the knowledge that God's Word is the final authority, and when we believe and apply it then God's will can become reality in our lives. - Author: Nerida Walker
Gods Will quotes by Nerida Walker
#40. Nietzsche says God is dead. Probably now God says Nietzsche is dead! The one that will die is religion, not the God! God will always live! - Author: Mehmet Murat Ildan
Gods Will quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#41. The desire for sudden change and the thought of their realization by force often appears among men like a disease and gains ground mainly in young brains; only these brains do not think as they should, do not amount to anything in the end and the heads that think thus do not remain long on their shoulders. For it is not human desires that dispose and administer the things of this world. Desire is like a wind, it sifts the dust from one place to another, sometimes darkens the whole horizon, but in the end calms down and leaves the old and eternal picture of the world. Lasting deeds are realized on this earth only by God's will, and man is only His humble and blind tool. - Author: Ivo Andric
Gods Will quotes by Ivo Andric
#42. God's will is like a jigsaw puzzle until you put all the pieces together, you won't be able to see the whole picture. - Author: Danny L. Deaube
Gods Will quotes by Danny L. Deaube
#43. Even such is Time *
Even such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
Who in the dark and silent grave,
When we have wandered all our ways,
Shuts up the story of our days:
But from this earth, this grave, this dust,
My God shall raise me up, I trust.
Sir Walter Raleigh (1554-1618)
*These lines are said to have been composed by Sir Walter Raleigh on the night before his execution. - Author: Walter Raleigh
Gods Will quotes by Walter Raleigh
#44. We can only learn to know ourselves and do what we can - namely, surrender our will and fulfill God's will in us. - Author: Saint Teresa Of Avila
Gods Will quotes by Saint Teresa Of Avila
#45. God's will. How many times have I heard someone declare their understanding of this thing I find so indefinable? - Author: Rae Carson
Gods Will quotes by Rae Carson
#46. God will open any doors he wants to open, and if He closes doors, that's fine, too. - Author: Patricia Heaton
Gods Will quotes by Patricia Heaton
#47. God works this unspeakable mystery of entire sanctification in your life and mine. People try to seek the experience of entire sanctification in ways other than God's way; but the wonderful Spirit of God will remove confusion and enable us to see that the only means to obtain the experience of entire sanctification by faith is the grace of God. - Author: Oswald Chambers
Gods Will quotes by Oswald Chambers
#48. God will not be outdone in generosity. - Author: Ignatius Of Loyola
Gods Will quotes by Ignatius Of Loyola
#49. By May, 1st, 1937, there should not be one single church left within the borders of Soviet Russia, and the idea of God will have been banished from the Soviet Union as a remnant of the Middle Ages, which has been used for the purpose of oppressing the working classes. - Author: Joseph Stalin
Gods Will quotes by Joseph Stalin
#50. If we're talented at music, that talent is of god. If something makes our heart sing, that's god's way of telling us its a contribution he wants us to make. Sharing our gifts is what makes us happy. We're most powerful and god's power is most apparent on the earth when we're happy. A course in miracles teaches that we are only truly happy when we're doing god's will. The only thing to be saved from is our own negativity and fear. The crux of salvation in any area is a shift in our sense of purpose. That shift is a miracle, as always we consciously ask for it: 'Dear god, please give my life some sense of purpose. use me as an instrument of your peace. Use my talents and abilities to spread love. I surrender my job to you. Help me to remember that my real job is to love the world back to health. - Author: Marianne Williamson
Gods Will quotes by Marianne Williamson
#51. We note the increasing coarseness of language and understand how Lot must have felt when he was, according to Peter, "vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked." (2 Peter2:7.) We wonder why those of coarse and profane conversation, even if they refuse obedience to God's will, are so stunted mentally that they let their capacity to communicate grow more and more narrow. Language is like music; we rejoice in beauty, range, and quality in both, and we are demeaned by the repetition of a few sour notes. - Author: Spencer W. Kimball
Gods Will quotes by Spencer W. Kimball
#52. If there be any Gods at all, of which I am not even certain, I cannot believe they would stoop to meddle in the affairs of men. Nor will I wait upon the Gods to do what I see clearly must be done - who's to say that the Goddess cannot work through my hand as well as another. - Author: Marion Zimmer Bradley
Gods Will quotes by Marion Zimmer Bradley
#53. It's God's will for you to live in prosperity instead of poverty. It's God's will for you to pay your bills and not be in debt. - Author: Joel Osteen
Gods Will quotes by Joel Osteen
#54. Far to our left I could see a commercial airliner on final approach to Soekarno-Hatta. Far to our right I could see the outline of tall city buildings. The imagery was hard to ignore. In the midst was an impoverished world filled with dangerous radicals. Some believed it was God's will to crash airplanes into buildings. Some recruited children to self-detonate on buses and in coffee shops. It must be incredibly difficult to hold fast to hope when you live in such a world. It's also hard to keep faith with humanity when religious ideology is used as an impetus for war. But I also believe that for every war there is a hero ... and for me, Jakarta will always be Indira's city. - Author: Tucker Elliot
Gods Will quotes by Tucker Elliot
#55. Everything that originates from God will endure the test of time. Therefore, it is good to check out the origins of everything to make sure they were started by God. - Author: Eric Ludy
Gods Will quotes by Eric Ludy
#56. I randomly opened a Bible to the passages in Revelation about being lukewarm. I realized that I had been living lukewarm. I wanted the best of both worlds. I wanted to fit in. And there's nothing wrong with fitting in if it's within God's will, but I wasn't willing to sacrifice the things that I wanted. That's when my faith became real to me. - Author: Matt Diaz
Gods Will quotes by Matt Diaz
#57. A fundamentalist is someone who wants to substitute what he believes for what you believe," Max said. "And someone who thinks he knows the will of God better than anyone else. - Author: Robin Wasserman
Gods Will quotes by Robin Wasserman
#58. If you want a significant man, with absolutes, morality, and meaning, then you must have what the Bible insists upon - that God will judge men justly, and they will not be able to raise their voices because of the base upon which He judges them. - Author: Francis Schaeffer
Gods Will quotes by Francis Schaeffer
#59. All around us are the miracles of God. A tiny seed grows into a peepul tree. A caterpillar becomes a butterfly! - Author: Dada J.P. Vaswani
Gods Will quotes by Dada J.P. Vaswani
#60. Despite their common reputation as agents of God's will, forces of good, and the gold standard for morality, all the angels Dean had met over the last year had been shifty, manipulative dicks. Except Cas, of course. - Author: Rebecca Dessertine
Gods Will quotes by Rebecca Dessertine
#61. Unless we deny our own will, we shall never do God's will. - Author: Thomas Watson
Gods Will quotes by Thomas Watson
#62. So how do you find out what God thinks? The Christian says, you look in the Bible. And the Bible tells us that God forbids homosexual acts. Therefore, they are wrong.
So basically the reasoning goes like this:
(1) We are all obligated to do God's will.
(2) God's will is expressed in the Bible.
(3) The Bible forbids homosexual behavior.
(4) Therefore, homosexual behavior is against God's will, or is wrong. - Author: William Lane Craig
Gods Will quotes by William Lane Craig
#63. You are to think of yourself as only existing in this world to do God's will. To think that you are your own is as absurd as to think you are self-created. It is an obvious first principle that you belong completely to God. - Author: William Law
Gods Will quotes by William Law
#64. I'm just going to keep working. Spend more days in the gym, as possible. Just trying to get my game up, and just keep playing. And if it's in God's will for me to win, then I'll get it. - Author: Dwight Howard
Gods Will quotes by Dwight Howard
#65. If you aren't vigilant, if you aren't daily humbling yourself before Him, seeking His face, discerning His timing, operating under the Spirit's control, you may push and shove and force your way prematurely into that place where God wanted you, but you will not have arrived in His own time. - Author: Charles R. Swindoll
Gods Will quotes by Charles R. Swindoll
#66. Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God
this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is
His good, pleasing, and perfect will. Romans 12:1-2) - Author: Anonymous
Gods Will quotes by Anonymous
#67. In place of our exhaustion and spiritual fatigue, God will give us rest. All He asks is that we come to Him ... that we spend a while thinking about Him, meditating on Him, talking to Him, listening in silence, occupying ourselves with Him - totally and thoroughly lost in the hiding place of His presence. - Author: Charles R. Swindoll
Gods Will quotes by Charles R. Swindoll
#68. Our manly ways and stern simplicity wreak much confusion to the enemy's councils. For they are men yet garb themselves as women, wearing wigs and finery and lace. And for this offense if it be God's will we will come upon them in the night, from the rear, and penetrate their degenerate bodies with our holy truth. For we are manly saints and possess the full swelling hardness of our faith, which gushes forevermore from Christ's unyielding root. - Author: Oliver Cromwell
Gods Will quotes by Oliver Cromwell
#69. Oh my god will you shut the front door already! - Author: Alex Riley
Gods Will quotes by Alex Riley
#70. Eternity is a constant learning process. It will be another grade, another step, a chance to do what we failed to do before and to learn what we failed to learn before. Thank God for eternity! We've all probably got a lot of bad habits to change and failures to make up for. Maybe God will give each of us a chance to meet people who we've wronged and straighten things out and tell them we're sorry. - Author: David Berg
Gods Will quotes by David Berg
#71. Whose meditation is real and effective? Who can really surrender to the will of God? Only the person whose mind has been purified by selfless work. - Author: Swami Vivekananda
Gods Will quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#72. The Indian never hurts anything, but the white people destroy all ... How can the spirit of the earth like the white man? That is why God will upset the world - because it is sore all over. Everywhere the white man has touched it, it is sore. - Author: Pretty Shield
Gods Will quotes by Pretty Shield
#73. Jesus was not killed by atheism and anarchy. He was brought down by law and order allied with religion, which is always a deadly mix. Beware those who claim to know the mind of God and who are prepared to use force, if necessary, to make others conform. Beware those who cannot tell God's will from their own. Temple police are always a bad sign. When chaplains start wearing guns and hanging out at the sheriff's office, watch out. Someone is about to have no king but Caesar - Author: Barbara Brown Taylor
Gods Will quotes by Barbara Brown Taylor
#74. When you are in the dark, listen, and God will give you a very precious message. - Author: Oswald Chambers

Gods Will quotes by H.L. Mencken
#76. Sometimes it seems safer to have just enough God to get to heaven, but not so much that he radically alters our lives. - Author: Chris Hodges
Gods Will quotes by Chris Hodges
#77. If God opens the door for you to do something you know is good or necessary, be thankful for the opportunity. But other than that, don't assume that the relative ease or difficulty of a new situation is God's way of telling you to do one thing or the other. Remember, God's will for your life is sanctification, and God tends to use discomfort and trials more than comfort and ease to make us holy. - Author: Kevin DeYoung
Gods Will quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#78. When we're not following God's will, our sacrifices aren't acceptable to Him. What God wants most is for us to be broken before Him, walk with Him, know Him, and obey Him. - Author: Sarah Sundin
Gods Will quotes by Sarah Sundin
#79. I was thinking I would miss the rain. I wonder if you can experience the rain in Heaven, if God will let you dip your wings down ... But my biggest expectation now is just to live. I will not go gently into that goodnight ... - Author: Farrah Fawcett
Gods Will quotes by Farrah Fawcett
#80. Suffering, sin, and evil are no longer located in God's will, but are understood as arising within a finite, open, developmental, and future-oriented creation. They are dealt with by the power of God's love revealed in the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ. God's answer to the problem of woundedness and wickedness is not to show us now or in the eschaton how they fit into God's design or mosaic, but to show us how God overcomes the brokenness and maliciousness of the creation now and in the eschaton through the redemptive power of the cross and resurrection. Divine power is rethought as the suffering and transforming power of Jesus' cross and resurrection, not as the omnipotent power of the timeless will of God. Incarnation, instead of immutability, defines God's will and way. God is the suffering and transforming God. - Author: Tyron Inbody
Gods Will quotes by Tyron Inbody
#81. You have to have a revelation of God's will and pursue it in order to fulfill it in your life. - Author: Paul Silway
Gods Will quotes by Paul Silway
#82. Wherever a human being goes, there is a challenge. Be the best man you can, and your gods will look with favor upon you. - Author: James A. Michener
Gods Will quotes by James A. Michener
#83. We are gripped by God's will of love, and must help carry out that will in this world, in small things as in great things, in saving as in pardoning. To be glad instruments of God's love in this imperfect world is the service to which we are called. - Author: Albert Schweitzer
Gods Will quotes by Albert Schweitzer
#84. A rarer spirit never Did steer humanity; but you gods will give us Some faults to make us men. - Author: William Shakespeare
Gods Will quotes by William Shakespeare
#85. Perhaps the gods will surprise us and it will be neither."
"A true tragedy."
"Of epic proportions."
"Two longstanding rivals."
"And only one robe to bear."
"Who will win?" Darren's tone was wry. "The handsome prince?"
I grinned. "Or his valiant betrothed? - Author: Rachel E. Carter
Gods Will quotes by Rachel E. Carter
#86. So our problem is to explain where symmetry comes from. Why is nature so nearly symmetrical? No one has any idea why. The only thing we might suggest is something like this: There is a gate in
Japan, a gate in Neiko, which is sometimes called by the Japanese
the most beautiful gate in all Japan; it was built in a time when
there was great influence from Chinese art. This gate is very elaborate,
with lots of gables and beautiful carving and lots of columns
and dragon heads and princes carved into the pillars, and so on.
But when one looks closely he sees that in the elaborate and complex
design along one of the pillars, one of the small design elements
is carved upside down; otherwise the thing is completely
symmetrical. If one asks why this is, the story is that it was carved
upside down so that the gods will not be jealous of the perfection
of man. So they purposely put an error in there, so that the gods
would not be jealous and get angry with human beings.
We might like to turn the idea around and think that the true
explanation of the near symmetry of nature is this: that God made
the laws only nearly symmetrical so that we should not be jealous
of His perfection! - Author: Richard P. Feynman
Gods Will quotes by Richard P. Feynman
#87. If you be faithful as an influencer, God will allow those you mentored you to become your mentees. - Author: Johnny Hunt

Gods Will quotes by Peter Kreeft
#89. I find it interesting that the meanest life, the poorest existence, is attributed to God's will, but as human beings become more affluent, as their living standard and style begin to ascend the material scale, God descends the scale of responsibility at commensurate speed. - Author: Maya Angelou
Gods Will quotes by Maya Angelou

Gods Will quotes by Billy Graham

Gods Will quotes by Richard Chenevix Trench

Gods Will quotes by Greg Laurie
#100. Worthy persons deserve to be called so because they are not carried away by the eight winds: prosperity,decline,disgrace,honor,praise,censure,suffering, and pleasure.They are neither elated by prosperity nor grieved by decline. The heavenly gods will surely protect one who is unbending before the eight winds. - Author: Nichiren
Gods Will quotes by Nichiren

Gods Will quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#102. We all wanted what we wanted, and when the Lord fulfilled HIS purpose rather than ours, we struck out against him. In anger. In disappointment. Yet, it is God's will that prevails. - Author: Francine Rivers
Gods Will quotes by Francine Rivers
#103. Frederick Douglass told in his Narrative how his condition as a slave became worse when his master underwent a religious conversion that allowed him to justify slavery as the punishment of the children of Ham. Mark Twain described his mother as a genuinely good person, whose soft heart pitied even Satan, but who had no doubt about the legitimacy of slavery, because in years of living in antebellum Missouri she had never heard any sermon opposing slavery, but only countless sermons preaching that slavery was God's will. With or without religion, good people can behave well and bad people can do evil; but for good people to do evil - that takes religion. - Author: Steven Weinberg
Gods Will quotes by Steven Weinberg
#104. Bin Laden's quotes from the Quaran resonated in my brain: "When you meet the unbelievers, strike them in the neck." "If you do not go out and fight, God will punish you severely and put others in your place." "Wherever you find the polytheists, kill them, seize them, besiege them, ambush them." "You who believe, do not take the Jews and Christians as friends; they are allies only to each other. Anyone who takes them as an ally becomes one of them. - Author: Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Gods Will quotes by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
#105. A lot of us have developed a diet mentality toward lust. We really want to cut back on lust because we know its not healthy and it makes us feel bad. But like some rich, calorie-laden chocolate dessert, lust is just too tasty to resist completely. Surely God will understand if we break our diet and nibble a little lust now and then. - Author: Joshua Harris
Gods Will quotes by Joshua Harris
#106. In [the] early days, Muslims did not see Islam as a new, exclusive religion but as a continuation of the primordial faith of the 'People of the Book', the Jews and Christians. In one remarkable passage, God insists that Muslims must accept indiscriminately the revelations of every single one of God's messengers: Abraham, Isaac, Ishamel, Jacob, Moses, Jesus and all the other prophets. The Qur'an is simply a 'confirmation' of the previous scriptures. Nobody must be forced to accept Islam, because each of the revealed traditions had its own din; it was not God's will that all human beings should belong to the same faith community. God was not the exclusive property of any one tradition; the divine light could not be confined to a single lamp, belonged neither to the East or to the West, but enlightened all human beings. Muslims must speak courteously to the People of the Book, debate with them only in 'the most kindly manner', remember that they worshipped the same God, and not engage in pointless, aggressive disputes. - Author: Karen Armstrong
Gods Will quotes by Karen Armstrong
#107. Every breath drawn by an individual who truly serves God will elicit a responsive chord from the universe around him. - Author: Samson Raphael Hirsch
Gods Will quotes by Samson Raphael Hirsch
#108. Therefore, whenever significant differences of opinion among faithful Christians occur, some of which continue to divide the church deeply today, neither surprise nor dismay should be allowed to separate the members of the Body from one another; nor should those differences be covered over with false claims of consensus or unanimity. To the contrary, such conflict must be embraced with courage and perseverance as all together continue to seek to discern God's will. In that understanding and commitment, we pledge ourselves to acknowledge and to embrace with courage, trust, and hope those controversies that arise among us, accepting them as evidence that God is not yet finished in sculpting us to be God's people. - Author: Neal Christie
Gods Will quotes by Neal Christie
#109. It is the will of God that we live not only as rational beings, but as 'new men' regenerated by the Holy Spirit in Christ. It is His will that we reach out for our inheritance, that we answer His call to be His sons. We are born men without our consent, but the consent to be sons of God has to be elicited by our own free will. - Author: Thomas Merton
Gods Will quotes by Thomas Merton
#110. I am convinced that when a man sincerely searches for God with all his heart, God will reveal Himself in some way. - Author: Billy Graham
Gods Will quotes by Billy Graham

Gods Will quotes by Frederick William Faber
#112. Those who in fact risk all for God will find that they have both lost all and gained all. - Author: Teresa Of Avila
Gods Will quotes by Teresa Of Avila
#113. Democracy demands that the religiously motivated translate their concerns in to universal, rather than religion-specific, values ... it requires that their proposals be subject to argument and amenable to reason.
Now I may be opposed to abortion for religious reasons, to take one example, but if I seek to pass a law banning the practice, I cannot simply point to the teachings of my church or evoke God's will. I have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths, including those with no faith at all. - Author: Barack Obama
Gods Will quotes by Barack Obama
#114. Discipline will never bring about love for God, but love for God will bring about discipline. - Author: Matt Chandler

Gods Will quotes by Anonymous
#116. Now, every day I am offered the gift of living in such a way that I get a taste of what it means to need him. Resting fully dependent in the palm of his hand, I realize the safety of staying small. I get to embrace the full shock value of the kingdom of God, and that is a real blessing. I get to be knocked around by the fallout of belonging to a life where I am wildly ill equipped to meet its demands. I am honored to experience an existence marked by dependence, where I submit to God's will for my life, even and especially when it defies my put-on, middle-class values. - Author: Shannan Martin
Gods Will quotes by Shannan Martin
#117. If you're avoiding sin and living morally so that God will have to bless you and save you, then you may be looking to Jesus as a teacher, model, and helper, but ironically you are avoiding him as Savior. You are trusting in your own goodness rather than in Jesus for your standing with God. - Author: Timothy Keller
Gods Will quotes by Timothy Keller

Gods Will quotes by Marc Martel
#120. Sierra felt full of hope and confidence in God. She knew who she was. And she knew Whose she was.
Whatever mysterious plan God had for her life, it would be an interesting one. As Christy had said earlier, God writes a different story for each person. Sierra decided hers might not be a bestseller or even a thriller. It certainly wasn't a romance. But it was turning into a fine mystery. And she could live with that. - Author: Robin Jones Gunn
Gods Will quotes by Robin Jones Gunn
#121. Very often God's will for you will be "I want you to decide," because decision making is an indispensable part of character formation. God is primarily in the character-forming business, not the circumstance-shaping business. - Author: John Ortberg
Gods Will quotes by John Ortberg
#122. I believe it was God's will that we should come back, so that men might know the things that are in the world, since, as we have said in the first chapter of this book, no other man, Christian or Saracen, Mongol or pagan, has explored so much of the world as Messer Marco, son of Messer Niccolo Polo, great and noble citizen of the city of Venice. - Author: Marco Polo

Gods Will quotes by Bill Gothard
#124. 'Doing your own thing' and being a Christian is an oxymoron. As Christians, every day we need to be presenting ourselves before the Lord, thanking Him for His mercy and asking Him to make us more like Him by emptying us of our will, so God's will can be done. - Author: Monica Johnson

Gods Will quotes by Zig Ziglar
#129. It is God's will through His wonderful grace, that the prayers of His saints should be one of the great principal means of carrying on the designs of Christ's kingdom in the world. When God has something very great to accomplish for His church, it is His will that there should precede it the extraordinary prayers of His people; as is manifest by Ezekiel 36:37. and it is revealed that, when God is about to accomplish great things for His church, He will begin by remarkably pouring out the spirit of grace and supplication (see Zechariah 12:10). - Author: Jonathan Edwards

#131. I have so often been asked the question: "But how did you come to think of The Scarlet Pimpernel?" And my answer has always been: "It was God's will that I should." And to you moderns, who perhaps do not believe as I do, I will say, "In the chain of my life, there were so many links, all of which tended towards bringing me to the fulfillment of my destiny. - Author: Emmuska Orczy
Gods Will quotes by Emmuska Orczy
#132. I will be led and taught of the Holy Spirit. God desires full development, use and activity of our faculties. The Holy Spirit can and will guide me in direct proportion to the time and effort I will expend to know and do the will of God. I must read the Bible to know God's will. At every point I will obey and do I will die to self. I will begin to ask God to put me in a service of constant circumstances where to live Christ I must die to self. I will be alive unto God. That I may learn to love Him with my heart, mind, soul, and body. - Author: Roger Youderian

#134. The course of human history consists of a series of encounters between individual human beings and God in which each man and woman or child, in turn, is challenged by God to make his free choice between doing God's will and refusing to do it. - Author: Arnold J. Toynbee
Gods Will quotes by Arnold J. Toynbee

Gods Will quotes by David Berg
#136. Some lives are thus blessed: it is God's will: it is the attesting trace and lingering evidence of Eden. Other lives run from the first another course. Other travelers encounter weather fitful and gusty , wild and variable - breast adverse winds, are belated and overtaken by the early closing winter night. Neither can this happen without the sanction of God; and I know that amidst His boundless works, is somewhere stored the secret of this last fate's justice: I know that His treasures contain the proof as the promise of its mercy. - Author: Charlotte Bronte
Gods Will quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#137. The cross guarantees that even in your darkest moment God will never turn in disgust and walk away. There is no rebellion, no weakness, no foolishness, no evil of heart that the cross can't defeat and grace can't transform. - Author: Paul David Tripp

Gods Will quotes by Gloria Gaither
#140. Prayer is not a vain attempt to change God's will; it is a filial desire to learn God's will and to share it. Prayer is not a substitute for work: it is the secret spring and indispensable ally of all true work. - Author: George Arthur Buttrick
Gods Will quotes by George Arthur Buttrick

#142. Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. ROMANS 12:2 NLT - Author: Various
Gods Will quotes by Various
#143. I will frankly confess that I was convinced that God had ordained me to do certain things for the service of my nation, things that perhaps could not be done by anyone else.

Gods Will quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#151. In the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will direct your paths (Proverbs 3:5-6). We can choose to be self-sufficient or to rely on God. We can act on our own understanding regarding life's circumstances, or we can seek God's will in every situation. But only one choice assures us that God will direct our paths. - Author: Francine Rivers
Gods Will quotes by Francine Rivers
#152. Your call will become clear as as your mind is transformed by the reading of Scripture and the internal work of God's Spirit. The Lord never hides His will from us. In time, as you obey the call first to follow, your destiny will unfold before you. The difficulty will lie in keeping other concerns from diverting your attention. - Author: Charles R. Swindoll

Gods Will quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#159. God will fill the hungry because He Himself has stirred up the hunger. As in the case of prayer, when God prepares the heart to pray, He prepares His ear to hear (Ps. 10:17). So in the case of spiritual hunger, when God prepares the heart to hunger, He will prepare His hand to fill. - Author: Thomas Watson
Gods Will quotes by Thomas Watson

#166. God will do nothing but in answer to prayer. - Author: John Wesley
Gods Will quotes by John Wesley
#167. We do not serve a distant and detached God who spouts encouraging cliches safely from the sideline. Instead, he enters into our suffering. Jesus did it in the Incarnation and his Spirit does it in us now. God will never leave us alone in our suffering. - Author: Rick Warren
Gods Will quotes by Rick Warren
#168. Welcome any change that comes into any phase in your life; insist that it is going to turn out for the better - and it will. See the Angel of God in it, and the Angel of God will make all things new. - Author: Emmet Fox
Gods Will quotes by Emmet Fox
#169. It is a mistake easily made by every man, saint or scholar, Church leader or day laborer. Ultimately, we come to expect God to accept our understanding of what his will ought to be and to help us fulfill that, instead of learning to see and accept his will in the real situations in which he places us daily. The simple soul who each day makes a morning offering of "all the prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this day" - and who then acts upon it by accepting unquestioningly and responding lovingly to all the situations of the day as truly sent by God - has perceived with an almost childlike faith the profound truth about the will of God. To predict what God's will is going to be, to rationalize about what his will must be, is at once a work of human folly and yet the subtlest of all temptations. The plain and simple truth is that his will is that he actually wills to send us each day, in the way of circumstances, places, people, and problems. The trick is to learn to see that - not just in theory, or not just occasionally in a flash of insight granted by God's grace, but every day. - Author: Father Walter J. Ciszek
Gods Will quotes by Father Walter J. Ciszek
#170. To lose something in the will of God is to find something better. - Author: Jack Hyles
Gods Will quotes by Jack Hyles
#171. St. Teresa of Avila once said: "We can only learn to know ourselves and do what we can - namely, surrender our will and fulfill God's will in us." For Christians not of the prosperity persuasion, surrender is a virtue; the writings of the saints are full of commands to "let go" and to submit yourself to what seems to be the will of the Almighty. All of American culture and pop psychology scream against that. Never give up on your dreams! Just keep knocking, that door is about to open! Think positively! Self-improvement guaranteed!! The entire motivational-speaking industry rests on the assumption that you can have what you want, you can be what you want. Just do it.
When prosperity believers live out their daily struggles with smiles on their faces, sometimes I want to applaud. They confront the impossible and joyfully insist that God make a way. They obediently put miracle oil on their failing bodies. They give large offerings to the church and expect great things. They stubbornly get out of their hospital beds and declare themselves healed, and every now and then, it works.
They are addicted to self-rule, and so am I. - Author: Kate Bowler
Gods Will quotes by Kate Bowler
#172. If any earthly institution or custom conflicts with God's will, it is your Christian duty to oppose it. You must never allow the transitory, evanescent demands of man-made institutions to take precedence over the eternal demands of the Almighty God. - Author: Martin Luther
Gods Will quotes by Martin Luther
#173. Prayer is not an agency by which my will is to be accomplished upon the earth. The purpose of prayer is to get God's will to be accomplished upon the earth, and so many times we ask and receive not because the motive behind our asking is really that of accomplishing my will rather than God's will. - Author: Chuck Smith
Gods Will quotes by Chuck Smith
#174. How long will you carry the load of possessions on your head. When will you realise that nothing, no one belongs to you, that you belong to the Lord? - Author: Dada J.P. Vaswani
Gods Will quotes by Dada J.P. Vaswani
#175. The Kingdom of Heaven is where God's will is done. When God's will is done on earth as it is in Heaven, we know God as the God of life and love; we enjoy direct, open communication with God; we enjoy life together with God and with people from every nation in a community of grace and gratitude. - Author: Dean Summers
Gods Will quotes by Dean Summers
#176. To understand and do all, or most, of your responsibilities, is an act that requires a strong will, an understanding heart, a giving soul, and a responsible mind. Those who feel the responsibility towards their families, education, work environment, other people, and earth, are the ones who help this world to stand on its feet and reach better future by God's will.
It is a skill that requires both true will and balance in life, and it is a necessary skill that should be taught to children and teens gradually as they are the ones who are going to take care of this world in the future. - Author: Noora Ahmed Alsuwaidi
Gods Will quotes by Noora Ahmed Alsuwaidi

Gods Will quotes by Sathya Sai Baba
#183. Father Paul was at the start of life. His glassy convictions needed protection. They waited patiently until he too, succumbed to the unbearable unevenness of God's will, the sureness of his grace, the darkness of his mercy. - Author: Kathleen Tessaro

#185. Don't pound your chest when it's all good, then blame God when it's all bad. - Author: T.F. Hodge
Gods Will quotes by T.F. Hodge
#186. I fed on one of the true monsters - one of the many 'witch hunters' who interrogated and jailed the accused, seeking guilt where there was none. How humans can do such things to their fellows is beyond me. They torture, main and kill their own kind, saying it is God's will. - Author: Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
Gods Will quotes by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
#187. None shall be saved by Christ but those only who work out their own salvation while God is working in them by His truth and His Holy Spirit. We cannot do without God; and God will not do without us. - Author: Matthew Henry
Gods Will quotes by Matthew Henry
#188. Watching the mirror lined walls as she made her way to the exit there was no joy no satisfaction as she watched the broken man that still sat at the table staring aimlessly into the nothingness that had become his life. Tonight he would go home not to a loving family but a room full of corpses. Corpses that she would add to if he didn't do everything that she said. The rules that she had once lived by were gone. The honor that she once clung to even at her darkest was no more. There was no gods will, no man's law there was only Hammurabi's Code. There was only an eye for an eye. - Author: Angelique Jones
Gods Will quotes by Angelique Jones
#189. The will of God prevails. In great contests each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God. Both *may* be, and one *must* be, wrong. God cannot be *for* and *against* the same thing at the same time. In the present civil war it is quite possible that God's purpose is something different from the purpose of either party - and yet the human instrumentalities, working just as they do, are of the best adaption to effect His purpose. I am almost ready to say that this is probably true - that God wills this contest, and wills that it shall not end yet. By His mere great power, on the minds of the now contestants, He could have either *saved* or *destroyed* the Union without human contest. Yet the contest began, And, having begun He could give the final victory to either side any day. Yet the contest proceeds. - Author: Abraham Lincoln
Gods Will quotes by Abraham Lincoln

Gods Will quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#196. Do you know who the upright of heart are? They are those who wish what God wishes. Therefore, do not try to twist God's will to you own but correct your will to that of God. The will of God is a rule of conduct. By it you have the means of being converted and of correcting your evil ways. - Author: Augustine Of Hippo
Gods Will quotes by Augustine Of Hippo
#197. How do we stay on the narrow path of following God's will in every sphere of life? How do we maintain sure footing and not fall into the temptation of rebellion on one side, or the temptation of legalism on the other?
God has not sent us out across a tightrope! Yes, the path is narrow, but on both sides of the path is a solid handrail, driven down deep into the rock. What has God given to us that we might not rebel against Him? He has given us His sufficient Word. What has God given us that we might not become legalists and elevate our words above His? He has given us His sufficient word. - Author: Rob Rienow
Gods Will quotes by Rob Rienow
#198. Even today I am not ashamed to say that, overpowered by stormy enthusiasm, I fell down on my knees and thanked Heaven from an overflowing heart for granting me the good fortune of being permitted to live at this time. - Author: Adolf Hitler
Gods Will quotes by Adolf Hitler
#199. I remember one teacher there -- I can't recall her name now. She was short and spare, and I remember her eager jutting chin. Quite unexpectedly one day (in the middle, I think, of an arithmetic lesson) she suddenly launched forth on a speech on life and religion. "All of you," she said, "every one of you -- will pass through a time when you will face despair. If you never face despair, you will never have faced, or become, a Christian, or known a Christian life. To be a Christian you must face and accept the life that Christ faced and lived; you must enjoy things as he enjoyed things; be as happy as he was at the marriage at Canaan, know the peace and happiness that it means to be in harmony with God and with God's will. But you must also know, as he did, what it means to be alone in the Garden of Gethsemane, to feel that all your friends have forsaken you, that those you love and trust have turned away from you, and that God Himself has forsaken you. Hold on then to the belief that that is not the end. If you love, you will suffer, and if you do not love, you do not know the meaning of a Christian life." She then returned to the problems of compound interest ... - Author: Agatha Christie
Gods Will quotes by Agatha Christie

To throw my sceptre at the injurious gods;
To tell them that this world did equal theirs

Gods Will quotes by William Shakespeare
#202. If we are related, we shall meet. It was a tradition of the ancient world, that no metamorphosis could hide a god from a god; and there is a Greek verse which runs,
"The Gods are to each other not unknown."
Friends also follow the laws of divine necessity; they gravitate to each other, and cannot otherwise. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Gods Will quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#203. Our kids were God's kids first ... We tend to forget this fact, regarding our children as "our" children, as though we have the final say in their health and welfare. We don't. All people are God's people, including the small people who sit at our tables. - Author: Max Lucado

#204. No need to be like that, sir," said Groat levelly. "No need to be like that. You can't destroy the mails. You just can't do it, sir. That's Tampering With The Mail, sir. That's not just a crime, sir. That's a, a - " "Sin?" said Moist. "Oh, worse'n a sin," said Groat, almost sneering.

#206. God's truth is literal truth. The illumined mind has more operative cells. In reclaiming the mystical, we take back our whole selves. Formerly barren mental lands spring to new life through the planting of spiritual seeds. - Author: Marianne Williamson
Gods Will quotes by Marianne Williamson
#207. One thing that I've realized is that you're never going to be 100 percent successful. You're always going to be let down. When you have God in your life and you follow Christ, you're never going to be let down. Every time that you fail, He's there to pick you right back up. Every time you think the world's going to end because you had a couple of bad games, God's there to remind you that's not what it's all about. - Author: Mark Teixeira
Gods Will quotes by Mark Teixeira
#208. I surrender my anxiety and my sense of urgency. I allow God to guide me in the pacing of my life. I open my heart to God's timing. I release my deadlines, agendas, and stridency to the gentle yet often swift pacing of God. As I open my heart to God's unfoldings, my heart attains peace. As I relax into God's timing, my heart contains comfort. As I allow God to set the tone and schedule of my days, I find myself in the right time and place, open and available to God's opportunities. - Author: Julia Cameron
Gods Will quotes by Julia Cameron
#209. 'All the gods are one god and all the goddesses are one goddess, and there is one initiator.' The one initiator is one's own high self, with which the personality becomes more and more integrated as the path of spiritual evolution is followed. - Author: Doreen Valiente
Gods Will quotes by Doreen Valiente

Gods Will quotes by Arthur W. Pink
#212. His stomach tried to propel itself out of his throat. His mouth hinged open all by itself - the better to upchuck you with, my dear - and shot out five gods, a very slimy rock, quite a lot of nectar, some biscuits, and a chariot license plate. (No, I don't know how all that got in there.) - Author: Rick Riordan
Gods Will quotes by Rick Riordan
#213. I have tried to write Paradise
Do not move
Let the wind speak
that is paradise.
Let the Gods forgive what I
have made
Let those I love try to forgive
what I have made. - Author: Ezra Pound
Gods Will quotes by Ezra Pound
#214. When you think about the success you desire, don't forget that God's "not yet" doesn't mean "not ever. - Author: Tiffany L. Jackson
Gods Will quotes by Tiffany L. Jackson
#215. The world had always loved the saint as being the nearest possible approach to the perfection of God. Christ, through some divine instinct in him, seems to have always loved the sinner as being the nearest possible approach to the perfection of man. His primary desire was not to reform people, any more than his primary desire was to a relieve suffering. To turn an interesting thief into a tedious honest man was not his aim. He would have thought little of the Prisoners' Aid Society and other modern movements of the kind. The conversion of a publican into a Pharisee would not have seemed to him a great achievement. But in a manner not yet understood of the world he regarded sin and suffering as being in themselves beautiful holy things and modes of perfection.

It seems a very dangerous idea. It is - all great ideas are dangerous. That it was Christ's creed admits of no doubt. That it is the true creed I don't doubt myself.

Of course the sinner must repent. But why? Simply because otherwise he would be unable to realise what he had done. The moment of repentance is the moment of initiation. More than that: it is the means by which one alters one's past. The Greeks thought that impossible. They often say in their Gnomic aphorisms, 'Even the Gods cannot alter the past.' Christ showed that the commonest sinner could do it, that it was the one thing he could do. Christ, had he been asked, would have said - I feel quite certain about it - that the moment - Author: Oscar Wilde
Gods Will quotes by Oscar Wilde
#216. When Jesus went to his disciples on the evening of his resurrection, the first thing he said to them was, "Peace be with you." That has not changed. When you are in the presence of God, you are in a place of peace. Peace comes from the presence of someone who made you in love and keeps you in grace, someone you can count on to be with you in all things. When you are in God's presence, you are with one who knows you better than anyone does and who wants you to have the best life has to offer. In such a presence you have an inner calm that exceeds human understanding and measurement. - Author: Lila Empson
Gods Will quotes by Lila Empson
#217. Weariness that wants to reach the ultimate with one leap, with one fatal leap, a poor ignorant weariness that does not want to want any more: this created all gods and afterworlds. - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
Gods Will quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#218. Many Christians have no understanding of God's fatherhood - Author: Sunday Adelaja
Gods Will quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#219. Humility, the state of being humble, is often misunderstood; it is not a state of weakness, but of strength. It does not mean inferiority, resignation or submission; these imply that we are still resisting our need for help. When we are humble, we are totally willing to accept God's help, knowing that without it we cannot progress further. In humility we possess self-esteem, accept ourselves as we are, assets and defects alike, and extend the same acceptance to others. We are learning to recognize humility in others; we are attracted to them and we learn from them. - Author: Al-Anon Family Groups
Gods Will quotes by Al-Anon Family Groups
#220. It was passed on by the hook-nosed herdsmen of the grasslands, from the dwellers in tents to the dwellers in the squat stone cities where kings with curled blueblack beards worshipped round-bellied gods with curious rites. - Author: Robert E. Howard
Gods Will quotes by Robert E. Howard
#221. Thomas argued that if these strange animals were truly extinct, it implied poor planning on God's part, threatening the ideal of God's perfection, therefore, such creatures must still be alive in remote places on earth. I argued that even God should be allowed to change his mind. Why should God's perfection be based on having an unchanging - Author: Sue Monk Kidd
Gods Will quotes by Sue Monk Kidd
#222. I have always been a soldier. I have known no other life. The calling of arms, I have followed from boyhood. I have never sought another.

I have known lovers, sired offspring, competed in games, and committed outrages when drunk. I have vanquished empires, yoked continents, been crowned as an immortal before gods and men. But always I have been a soldier. - Author: Steven Pressfield
Gods Will quotes by Steven Pressfield
#223. If you want converts, surely one normal person is worth all the half-wits in the world!" "May I tell you the truth Lieutenant Rahms? The truth, Sir, is that God's viewpoint is sometimes different from ours. So different that we could not even guess at it unless He had given us a Book which tells us such things. In the scripture I learn that God values us not for our strength or our brains, but simply because He has made us. Who knows, in His eyes, a half-wit may be worth more than a watchmaker. Or a Lieutenant. - Author: Corrie Ten Boom
Gods Will quotes by Corrie Ten Boom
#224. The courts demand that every religious person must accommodate a single atheist who might be 'offended' at the favorable mention of God's name. But no atheist can be forced to accommodate a single religious person who might be offended by the atheist's unbelief, or who wants to be part of the pluralism and diversity about which liberals regularly speak, but which is not broad enough to embrace people who believe in God. - Author: Cal Thomas
Gods Will quotes by Cal Thomas

#226. Our laws are a reflection of our culture. Our culture does not condone the torture of innocent and defenseless creatures. And we as a society believe all God's creatures should be treated humanely. - Author: Joe Moore
Gods Will quotes by Joe Moore
#227. How you react doesn't tell a person about your character, as much as it does your fear or God's fire. Which is it? - Author: Shannon L. Alder

#228. Plant diseases, drought, desolation, despair were recurrent catastrophes during the ages - and the ancient remedies: supplications to supernatural spirits or gods. - Author: Norman Borlaug
Gods Will quotes by Norman Borlaug
#229. Our chaotic economic situation has convinced so many of our young people that there is no room for them. They become uncertain andrestless and morbid; they grab at false promises, embrace false gods and judge things by treacherous values. Their insecurity makes them believe that tomorrow doesn't matter and the ineffectualness of their lives makes them deny the ideals which we of an older generation acknowledged. - Author: Hortense Odlum
Gods Will quotes by Hortense Odlum
#230. Satan exalted himself above God and endeavored to get man to doubt the reliability of God's Word. - Author: Billy Graham
Gods Will quotes by Billy Graham
#231. Religion is about God's truth, but none of us can grasp that truth absolutely, because of our own imperfections and limitations. We are only children of God, not God. Therefore, we must not attempt to fit God into little boxes, claiming that He supports this or that political position. This is not only bad theology; it marginalizes God. - Author: Hillary Clinton
Gods Will quotes by Hillary Clinton
#232. It is our souls which are the everlastingness of God's purpose in this earth. - Author: William Mountford

Gods Will quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#234. The story of Hosea and Gomer is the second most powerful picture of God's love in the Bible. Other than Christ's death, there is no greater picture of love. - Author: Jud Wilhite

#236. Who knows who's waiting right now for one of us to invite them into God's family? - Author: Louie Giglio
Gods Will quotes by Louie Giglio
#237. I should interweave my theology with prayer. I should frequently interrupt my talking about God by talking to God. Not far behind the theological sentence, "God is generous," should come the prayerful sentence, "Thank you, God." On the heels of, "God is glorious," should come, "I adore your glory." What I have come to see is that this is the way it must be if we are feeling God's reality in our hearts as well as describing it with our heads. - Author: John Piper
Gods Will quotes by John Piper
#238. Religion professor Albert Wolters, in Creation Regained, writes, "[God] hangs on to his fallen original creation and salvages it. He refuses to abandon the work of his hands - in fact, he sacrifices his own Son to save his original project. Humankind, which has botched its original mandate and the whole creation along with it, is given another chance in Christ; we are reinstated as God's managers on earth. The original good creation is to be restored."74 - Author: Randy Alcorn

Gods Will quotes by Stonewall Jackson
#244. Therefore, she hummed the provincial lullaby she had learned from the officers' children in the English Quarter of Jerusalem, and watched in fascination while the savage radical's eyes misted over with tears. For an instant, the prison bars melted away, and she felt God's presence - for the first time since their imprisonment. She was not a captive, and this man was not her captor. Indeed, they were both merely God's children. - Author: V.S. Carnes
Gods Will quotes by V.S. Carnes
#245. The grace of God is dangerous. It's lavish, excessive, outrageous, and scandalous. God's grace is ridiculously inclusive. Apparently God doesn't care who He loves. He is not very careful about the people He calls His friends or the people He calls His church. - Author: Mike Yaconelli
Gods Will quotes by Mike Yaconelli
#246. It's in our nature to want to watch our human frailties played out on a huge, epic canvas. Ancient societies had anthropomorphic gods: a huge pantheon expanding into centuries of dynastic drama: fathers and sons, star-crossed lovers, warring brothers, martyred heroes. Tales that taught us the danger of hubris and the primacy of humility. It's the everyday stuff of everyman's life, but it's writ large, and we love it. - Author: Tom Hiddleston
Gods Will quotes by Tom Hiddleston
#247. If I am unable to make the gods above relent, I shall move hell. - Author: Virgil
Gods Will quotes by Virgil
#248. We must understand that the local church isn't a country club or a casual self-help group. It is God's holy temple, a congregation of redeemed saints and priests who are consecrated to God. It is God's lighthouse in a dark world. It is the pillar and support of the truth. - Author: Alexander Strauch
Gods Will quotes by Alexander Strauch
